CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2011–2012 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1170


Introduced  by  Assembly Member Alejo

February 18, 2011


An act to amend Section 21089 of the Public Resources Code, relating to environmental quality. An act to add Section 33320.5 to the Health and Safety Code, relating to redevelopment.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1170, as amended, Alejo. Environment: CEQA: lead agency: documents. Redevelopment Agency of the City of Watsonville: Manabe-Ow Site.
The Community Redevelopment Law authorizes the establishment of redevelopment agencies in communities in order to address the effects of blight, as defined, in those communities and requires those agencies to prepare, or cause to be prepared, and approve a redevelopment plan for each project area. Existing law authorizes the legislative body to amend or modify the plan by ordinance upon the recommendation of the agency and establishes procedural requirements and restrictions related to amendment of the plan.
This bill would authorize the planning commission or city council of the City of Watsonville to amend a specified preliminary plan and redevelopment plan, respectively, to add described territory, known as the Manabe-Bergstrom Site, currently referred to as the Manabe-Ow site. The bill would make a legislative declaration regarding the need for a special statute.

The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requires a lead agency, as defined, to prepare, or cause to be prepared, and certify the completion of, an environmental impact report (EIR) on a project that it proposes to carry out or approve that may have a significant effect on the environment or to adopt a negative declaration if it finds that the project will not have that effect. CEQA also requires a lead agency to prepare a mitigated negative declaration for a project that may have a significant effect on the environment if revisions in the project would avoid or mitigate that effect and there is no substantial evidence that the project, as revised, would have a significant effect on the environment. CEQA authorizes a lead agency to charge and collect a reasonable fee from a person proposing a project that is subject to CEQA to recover the estimated costs incurred by the lead agency in preparing a negative declaration of an EIR for the project to conform to the requirements of CEQA.

This bill would make technical, nonsubstative changes in those provisions authorizing a lead agency to charge and collect a reasonable fee from a person proposing a project subject to CEQA.

Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NOYES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 The Legislature hereby finds and declares as follows:
(a) The City of Watsonville, California, suffers high rates of poverty and unemployment. Unemployment in the City of Watsonville has averaged approximately 25 percent for the past two years. At the same time, land available within the City of Watsonville for development of job-intensive uses is extremely limited.
(b) The Watsonville 2005 General Plan, adopted by the City of Watsonville on May 24, 1984, identifies an approximately 95-acre site referred to as the “Manabe-Bergstrom Site,” currently referred to as the “Manabe-Ow Site,” as a new growth area. A portion of the Manabe-Ow Site is expected to meet one of the city’s primary economic growth objectives by accommodating up to 2,100 new jobs in an office and light industrial park, including office and flexible industrial use spaces, light industrial uses, and a small commercial retail area. Ancillary retail uses may not exceed cumulatively 5 percent of gross floor area and big box stores and automobile sales are prohibited by recorded deed restrictions. Residential uses are prohibited except for limited workforce housing.
(c) The Manabe-Ow Site is within the incorporated limits of the City of Watsonville, within a voter-approved urban growth boundary, and is completely surrounded by developed property. It is located on the edge of existing industrial, manufacturing, and warehouse facilities that serve the agricultural industry and other regional businesses and services. The Manabe-Ow Site is also adjacent to two existing redevelopment projects, the Westside Industrial Redevelopment Project and the Watsonville 2000 Redevelopment Project, which adjoin it on three sides.
(d) The Manabe-Ow Site is currently used for agricultural production. It contains none of the streets, utilities, or other infrastructure necessary to accommodate the proposed development. Infrastructure costs are currently estimated to be approximately $31 million. The southern portion of the site is located within a flood plain and requires up to eight feet of fill. The southeastern portion of the site contains soft, organic peat oils which require special foundations. Given the cost of infrastructure, site conditions, and the current depressed economy, a strong public-private partnership is essential to making the business park a reality.
(e) Permitting the City of Watsonville to amend the plan containing the Watsonville 2000 Redevelopment Project to include the Manabe-Ow Site furthers the purposes of the Community Redevelopment Law by expanding employment opportunities for jobless, underemployed, and low-income persons.

SEC. 2.

 Section 33320.5 is added to the Health and Safety Code, to read:

33320.5.
 (a) The planning commission of the City of Watsonville may amend the preliminary plan for the Watsonville 2000 Redevelopment Project to include the territory that is described in subdivision (f), the “Manabe-Ow Site,” which is conclusively deemed necessary for effective redevelopment of that project, notwithstanding this part.
(b) The city council, agency, and planning commission of the City of Watsonville may find and determine that the Manabe-Ow Site is an integral part of one or more areas developed for urban uses that are surrounded or substantially surrounded by parcels that have been or are developed for urban uses within the meaning of Section 33320.1. Notwithstanding this part, any such findings or determinations shall be deemed final and conclusive.
(c) The redevelopment agency within the City of Watsonville may make the findings required by subdivision (b) of Section 33321.5 with respect to the Manabe-Ow Site. Notwithstanding this part, such findings shall be deemed final and conclusive. Subdivision (g) of Section 33344.5 shall not apply to an amendment of the Watsonville 2000 Redevelopment Project adding the Manabe-Ow Site.
(d) Notwithstanding this part, the city council of the City of Watsonville may amend the redevelopment plan for the Watsonville 2000 Redevelopment Project to add the Manabe-Ow Site to the redevelopment project area. The ordinance adopting the amendment may omit the findings and determinations otherwise required by paragraphs (1), (11), and (14) of subdivision (d) of Section 33367.
(e) Pursuant to Section 15153 of Chapter 3 of Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations, the city council and redevelopment agency of the City of Watsonville may determine that the Environmental Impact Report prepared for the Specific Plan for the Manabe-Ow Business Park (State Clearinghouse No. 2008122060) is adequate for the amendment of the Watsonville 2000 Redevelopment Project to include the Manabe-Ow Site. The findings of the agency shall be final and conclusive notwithstanding any law.
(f) The Manabe-Ow Site consists of the following described real property:

SEC. 3.

 The Legislature finds and declares that, because of the unique circumstances applicable only to the redevelopment agency of the City of Watsonville, a statute of general applicability cannot be enacted within the meaning of subdivision (b) of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution. Therefore, this special statute is necessary.
SECTION 1.Section 21089 of the Public Resources Code is amended to read:
21089.

(a)A lead agency may charge and collect a reasonable fee from a person proposing a project subject to this division in order to recover the estimated costs incurred by the lead agency in preparing a negative declaration or an environmental impact report for the project and for procedures necessary to comply with this division on the project. Litigation expenses, costs, and fees incurred in actions alleging noncompliance with this division under Section 21167 are not recoverable under this section.

(b)The Department of Fish and Game may charge and collect filing fees, as provided in Section 711.4 of the Fish and Game Code. Notwithstanding Section 21080.1, a finding required under Section 21081, or a project approved under a certified regulatory program authorized pursuant to Section 21080.5 is not operative, vested, or final until the filing fees required pursuant to Section 711.4 of the Fish and Game Code are paid.

(c)(1)(A)A public agency may charge and collect a reasonable fee from members of the public for a copy of an environmental document not to exceed the cost of reproducing the environmental document.

(B)A public agency may provide the environmental document in an electronic format as prescribed pursuant to Section 6253.9 of the Government Code.

(2)For purposes of this subdivision, “environmental document” means an initial study, negative declaration, mitigated negative declaration, draft and final environmental impact report, a document prepared as a substitute for an environmental impact report, negative declaration, or mitigated negative declaration under a program certified pursuant to Section 21080.5, and a document prepared under the federal National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. Sec. 4321 et seq.) and used by a state or local agency in the place of the initial study, negative declaration, mitigated negative declaration, or an environmental impact report.
