LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 600, as amended, Chu. Local government: organization: disadvantaged unincorporated communities.
The Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000 provides the authority and procedure for the initiation, conduct, and completion of changes of organization, reorganization, and sphere of influence changes for cities and districts, as specified. Existing law prohibits a local agency formation commission from approving an annexation to a city of any territory greater than 10 acres where there exists a disadvantaged unincorporated community that is contiguous to the area of proposed annexation, unless an application to annex the disadvantaged unincorporated community into the subject city has been filed. Under existing law, an application to annex a contiguous disadvantaged community is not required if, among other things, the commission finds that a majority of the registered voters within the disadvantaged unincorporated community are opposed to the annexation, as specified.
This bill would additionally provide that an application to annex a contiguous disadvantaged community is not required if the commission finds that a majority of the registered voters within the affected disadvantaged unincorporated community would prefer to address the service deficiencies through an extraterritorial service extension.
This bill would also provide that the existing approval prohibition and the exemptions to the application requirement, as so expanded, apply to the annexation of two or more contiguous areas that take place within 5 years of each other and that are individually less than 10 acres but cumulatively more than 10 acres.

(1)The Planning and Zoning Law requires a city or county to prepare and adopt a comprehensive, long-term general plan that includes various mandatory elements, including a housing element for the preservation, improvement, and development of housing. That law also requires a city or county, on or before the due date for the next adoption of its housing element, to review and update the land use element of its general plan based on available data, including, but not limited to, the data and analysis of unincorporated island, fringe, or legacy communities inside or near its boundaries, as provided. That law requires the updated land use element to include, among other things, an analysis of water, wastewater, stormwater drainage, and structural fire protection needs or deficiencies for each identified community.

This bill would define the term “needs or deficiencies” for these purposes to mean both deficient services and lack of services, as specified.

(2)The Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000 provides the authority and procedure for the initiation, conduct, and completion of changes of organization, reorganization, and sphere of influence changes for cities and districts, as specified.

This bill would require, on or before January 1, 2021, each city, county, and qualified special district, as defined, to submit to the commission an accessibility plan to secure safe drinking water, wastewater services, stormwater drainage, and structural fire protection in unincorporated island, fringe, or legacy communities identified in the updated land use element described above. The bill would require the commission to determine the entity best positioned to provide adequate water or wastewater services to the affected territory. The bill would require the accessibility plan to include, among other things, an identification of actions by the commission that are necessary to enable that entity to provide those services and an analysis of costs and benefits of improved water or wastewater services for residents in each affected territory. The bill would prohibit the costs and fees for services extended to those territories through implementation of the accessibility plan from exceeding the cost of providing the service, as specified. The bill, on or before January 1, 2021, would require each county to submit a map of the county that identifies disadvantaged unincorporated communities that lack safe drinking water or adequate wastewater, along with the adopted accessibility plan, to the Office of Planning and Research, the State Water Resources Control Board, and any relevant regional quality control board, as specified.

The bill would require the commission to, within 5 years of the approval of an accessibility plan, hold a noticed public hearing and review the status of every disadvantaged unincorporated community that is subject to the accessibility plan.

By increasing the duties of local officials, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.

(3)The act sets forth the powers and duties of a local agency formation commission, including initiating proposals by resolution of application for, among other things, the formation of a new district or districts and specified reorganizations.

This bill would additionally authorize the commission to initiate the reorganization or extension of services involving a disadvantaged unincorporated community, as specified. The bill would require the commission to initiate a change of organization or reorganization or service extension if the commission determines that service needs identified in an accessibility plan remain unaddressed 2 years after the approval of the accessibility plan.

(4)Existing law prohibits the commission from approving an annexation to a city of any territory greater than 10 acres where there exists a disadvantaged unincorporated community that is contiguous to the area of proposed annexation, unless an application to annex the disadvantaged unincorporated community into the subject city has been filed.

This bill would also prohibit the commission from approving an annexation under these circumstances to a qualified special district. The bill would define the term “qualified special district” for these purposes to mean a special district with more than 500 service connections that provides drinking water or wastewater services.

The bill would also specify that these provisions apply to the annexation of 2 or more contiguous territories within 2 years of each other that are individually less than 10 acres but are cumulatively more than 10 acres.

(5)Under existing law, an application to annex a contiguous disadvantaged community is not required if the commission finds that a majority of the registered voters within the disadvantaged unincorporated community are opposed to the annexation, as specified.

This bill would instead provide that an application to annex a contiguous disadvantaged community is not required if the commission finds that a majority of the residents within the disadvantaged unincorporated community are opposed to the annexation, as specified. This bill would additionally provide that an application to annex a contiguous disadvantaged community is not required if the commission finds that a majority of the residents within the affected disadvantaged unincorporated community would prefer to address the service deficiencies through an extraterritorial service extension.

The bill would also prohibit the commission from approving an annexation to a city or to a qualified special district of any territory if the city or qualified special district has failed to take steps necessary to implement an accessibility plan, as specified.

(6)The act requires the commission to develop and determine the sphere of influence of each city and each special district within the county and enact policies designed to promote the logical and orderly development of areas within each sphere. The act requires the commission, in order to prepare and update spheres of influence in accordance with this requirement, to conduct a service review of the municipal services provided in the county or other appropriate area designated by the commission, as provided. The act requires the commission to prepare a written statement of its determinations with respect to, among other things, the present and planned capacity of public facilities, adequacy of public services, and infrastructure needs or deficiencies, as provided.

This bill would prohibit the commission from adopting, amending, or updating a sphere of influence update that removes a disadvantaged community from the sphere of influence of a city or a special district or that fails to include a disadvantaged community that is contiguous to the proposed sphere of influence, unless the commission makes specified findings. The bill would also prohibit the commission from approving, amending, or updating a sphere of influence for a city or a special district that has not taken action pursuant to an accessibility plan that was adopted as described above.

(7)The act additionally states that the purpose of the commission is, among other things, to encourage the efficient provision of government services, as specified.

This bill would also state that the purpose of a local agency formation commission is to encourage the equitable provision of government services, as specified.

(8)The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.

This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.

Among the purposes of a commission are discouraging urban sprawl, preserving open-space and prime agricultural lands, encouraging the efficient and equitable provision of government services, and encouraging the orderly formation and development of local agencies based upon local conditions, circumstances, and considerations of equity. One of the objects of the commission is to make studies and to obtain and furnish information which will contribute to the logical and reasonable development of local agencies in each county and to shape the development of local agencies so as to advantageously provide for the present and future needs of each county and its communities. When the formation of a new government entity is proposed, a commission shall make a determination as to whether existing agencies can feasibly provide the needed service or services in a more efficient and accountable manner. If a new single-purpose agency is deemed necessary, the commission shall consider reorganization with other single-purpose agencies that provide related services.

SEC. 3.SECTION 1.

 Section 56375 of the Government Code is amended to read:

(4) A commission shall not disapprove an annexation to a city, initiated by resolution, of contiguous territory that the commission finds is any of the following:
(A) Surrounded or substantially surrounded by the city to which the annexation is proposed or by that city and a county boundary or the Pacific Ocean if the territory to be annexed is substantially developed or developing, is not prime agricultural land as defined in Section 56064, is designated for urban growth by the general plan of the annexing city, and is not within the sphere of influence of another city.
(B) Located within an urban service area that has been delineated and adopted by a commission, which is not prime agricultural land, as defined by Section 56064, and is designated for urban growth by the general plan of the annexing city.
(C) An annexation or reorganization of unincorporated islands meeting the requirements of Section 56375.3.
(5) As a condition to the annexation of an area that is surrounded, or substantially surrounded, by the city to which the annexation is proposed, the commission may require, where consistent with the purposes of this division, that the annexation include the entire island of surrounded, or substantially surrounded, territory.
(6) A commission shall not impose any conditions that would directly regulate land use density or intensity, property development, or subdivision requirements.
(7) The decision of the commission with regard to a proposal to annex territory to a city shall be based upon the general plan and prezoning of the city. When the development purposes are not made known to the annexing city, the annexation shall be reviewed on the basis of the adopted plans and policies of the annexing city or county. A commission shall require, as a condition to annexation, that a city prezone the territory to be annexed or present evidence satisfactory to the commission that the existing development entitlements on the territory are vested or are already at build-out, and are consistent with the city’s general plan. However, the commission shall not specify how, or in what manner, the territory shall be prezoned.
(8) (A) Except for those changes of organization or reorganization authorized under Section 56375.3, and except as provided by subparagraphs (B) and (C), subparagraph (B), a commission shall not approve an annexation to a city or to a qualified special district of any territory greater than 10 acres, or as determined by commission policy, where there exists a disadvantaged unincorporated community that is contiguous to the area of proposed annexation, unless an application to annex the disadvantaged unincorporated community to the subject city or qualified special district has been filed with the executive officer.

(C) This paragraph shall apply to the annexation of two or more contiguous areas that take place within five years of each other and that are individually less than 10 acres but cumulatively more than 10 acres.

(9)Except for those changes of organization or reorganization authorized under Section 56375.3, a commission shall not approve an annexation to a city or to a qualified special district of any territory if the city or applicable county has failed to take steps necessary to implement an accessibility plan pursuant to Section 56440.

(b) With regard to a proposal for annexation or detachment of territory to, or from, a city or district or with regard to a proposal for reorganization that includes annexation or detachment, to determine whether territory proposed for annexation or detachment, as described in its resolution approving the annexation, detachment, or reorganization, is inhabited or uninhabited.
(c) With regard to a proposal for consolidation of two or more cities or districts, to determine which city or district shall be the consolidated successor city or district.
(d) To approve the annexation of unincorporated, noncontiguous territory, subject to the limitations of Section 56742, located in the same county as that in which the city is located, and that is owned by a city and used for municipal purposes and to authorize the annexation of the territory without notice and hearing.
(e) To approve the annexation of unincorporated territory consistent with the planned and probable use of the property based upon the review of general plan and prezoning designations. No subsequent change may be made to the general plan for the annexed territory or zoning that is not in conformance to the prezoning designations for a period of two years after the completion of the annexation, unless the legislative body for the city makes a finding at a public hearing that a substantial change has occurred in circumstances that necessitate a departure from the prezoning in the application to the commission.
(f) With respect to the incorporation of a new city or the formation of a new special district, to determine the number of registered voters residing within the proposed city or special district or, for a landowner-voter special district, the number of owners of land and the assessed value of their land within the territory proposed to be included in the new special district. The number of registered voters shall be calculated as of the time of the last report of voter registration by the county elections official to the Secretary of State prior to the date the first signature was affixed to the petition. The executive officer shall notify the petitioners of the number of registered voters resulting from this calculation. The assessed value of the land within the territory proposed to be included in a new landowner-voter special district shall be calculated as shown on the last equalized assessment roll.
(g) To adopt written procedures for the evaluation of proposals, including written definitions consistent with existing state law. The commission may adopt standards for any of the factors enumerated in Section 56668. Any standards adopted by the commission shall be written.
(h) To adopt standards and procedures for the evaluation of service plans submitted pursuant to Section 56653 and the initiation of a change of organization or reorganization pursuant to subdivision (a).

(m) To waive the restrictions of Section 56744 if it finds that the application of the restrictions would be detrimental to the orderly development of the community and that the area that would be enclosed by the annexation or incorporation is so located that it cannot reasonably be annexed to another city or incorporated as a new city.
(n) To waive the application of Section 22613 of the Streets and Highways Code if it finds the application would deprive an area of a service needed to ensure the health, safety, or welfare of the residents of the area and if it finds that the waiver would not affect the ability of a city to provide any service. However, within 60 days of the inclusion of the territory within the city, the legislative body may adopt a resolution nullifying the waiver.
(o) If the proposal includes the incorporation of a city, as defined in Section 56043, or the formation of a district, as defined in Section 2215 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, the commission shall determine the property tax revenue to be exchanged by the affected local agencies pursuant to Section 56810. If the proposal includes the disincorporation of a city, as defined in Section 56034, the commission shall determine the property tax revenue to be exchanged by the affected local agencies pursuant to Section 56813.
(p) To authorize a city or district to provide new or extended services outside its jurisdictional boundaries pursuant to Section 56133.
(q) To enter into an agreement with the commission for an adjoining county for the purpose of determining procedures for the consideration of proposals that may affect the adjoining county or where the jurisdiction of an affected agency crosses the boundary of the adjoining county.

Any annexation approved in accordance with this subdivision shall be subject to the state and federal constitutional prohibitions against the taking of private property without the payment of just compensation. This subdivision shall not impair the authority of a public agency or public utility to exercise eminent domain authority.

(a)In order to carry out its purposes and responsibilities for planning and shaping the logical and orderly development and coordination of local governmental agencies subject to the jurisdiction of the commission to advantageously provide for the present and future needs of the county and its communities, the commission shall develop and determine the sphere of influence of each city and each special district, as defined by Section 56036, within the county and enact policies designed to promote the logical and orderly development of areas within the sphere.

(b)Prior to a city submitting an application to the commission to update its sphere of influence, representatives from the city and representatives from the county shall meet to discuss the proposed new boundaries of the sphere and explore methods to reach agreement on development standards and planning and zoning requirements within the sphere to ensure that development within the sphere occurs in a manner that reflects the concerns of the affected city and is accomplished in a manner that promotes the logical and orderly development of areas within the sphere. If an agreement is reached between the city and county, the city shall forward the agreement in writing to the commission, along with the application to update the sphere of influence. The commission shall consider and adopt a sphere of influence for the city consistent with the policies adopted by the commission pursuant to this section, and the commission shall give great weight to the agreement to the extent that it is consistent with commission policies in its final determination of the city sphere.

(c)If the commission’s final determination is consistent with the agreement reached between the city and county pursuant to subdivision (b), the agreement shall be adopted by both the city and county after a noticed public hearing. Once the agreement has been adopted by the affected local agencies and their respective general plans reflect that agreement, then any development approved by the county within the sphere shall be consistent with the terms of that agreement.

(d)If no agreement is reached pursuant to subdivision (b), the application may be submitted to the commission and the commission shall consider a sphere of influence for the city consistent with the policies adopted by the commission pursuant to this section.

(f)Upon determination of a sphere of influence, the commission shall adopt that sphere.

(g)On or before January 1, 2008, and every five years thereafter, the commission shall, as necessary, review and update each sphere of influence.

(h)In determining a sphere of influence, the commission may assess the feasibility of governmental reorganization of particular agencies and recommend reorganization of those agencies when reorganization is found to be feasible and if reorganization will further the goals of orderly development and efficient and affordable service delivery. The commission shall make all reasonable efforts to ensure wide public dissemination of the recommendations.

(i)When adopting, amending, or updating a sphere of influence for a special district, the commission shall establish the nature, location, and extent of any functions or classes of services provided by existing districts.

(j)When adopting, amending, or updating a sphere of influence for a special district, the commission may require existing districts to file written statements with the commission specifying the functions or classes of services provided by those districts.

(k)The commission shall not adopt, amend, or update a sphere of influence update that does either of the following:

(1)Removes a disadvantaged community from the sphere of influence of a city or a special district unless the commission makes a finding, based upon written evidence, that the removal of the disadvantaged community from the sphere of influence of the city or special district will result in improved service delivery to the community.

(2)Fails to include a disadvantaged community that is contiguous to the proposed sphere of influence unless the commission makes a finding, based upon written evidence, that the exclusion of the disadvantaged community from the proposed sphere of influence will result in improved access to safe drinking water or wastewater access.

(l)The commission shall not amend or update a sphere of influence for a city or special district that has not taken action pursuant to the accessibility plan adopted pursuant to Section 56440.

SEC. 6.Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 56440) is added to Part 2 of Division 3 of Title 5 of the Government Code, to read:
