SUBJECT: NOTICED PUBLIC HEARING: COST RECOVERY PROPOSAL TO AMEND ORDINANCES RELATED TO LAND DEVELOPMENT FEES AND DEPOSITS EFFECTIVE FISCAL YEAR 2018-19 (DISTRICTS: ALL)

OVERVIEW

Tagged Passions:hearing, ordinance, development, and Development

This is a request for the Board of Supervisors (Board) to adopt the land development cost recovery proposal which includes hourly billing rates, fees, and deposits for the processing of discretionary land development and building permit applications by Planning Development Services (PDS), the Department of Public Works (DPW), and the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) (collectively the Departments ).

Tagged Passions:services, Public Works, development, rates, planning, parks, recreation, Development, and public works

With cost recovery funding, the Departments provide services that range in diversity and complexity and serve a wide variety of customers. Services include environmental and community character review through discretionary permitting, health and safety inspections of homes, and public infrastructure such as roads, parks and trails. The review of privately initiated land development and building permit applications ensures the safe design and construction of structures and infrastructure to protect the public. Through these services, the County balances community, economic, and environmental interests to enhance the quality of life in the unincorporated area of San Diego county.

Board Policy B-29 directs departments to recover the full cost for services provided to agencies or individuals outside of the County of San Diego. The last cost recovery package for the three Departments was March 22, 2017 (2). Since the last cost recovery package the Departments have continued to provide services to the public at the approved rates through increased efficiencies and process improvements, as well as achieving cost savings in other categories. Based on Countywide negotiated salary increases that took effect in November 2017, after the last fee adjustment, the fees proposed today, for Fiscal Year 2018-19, will be necessary in order to address cost increases and ensure compliance with Board Policy B-29: Fees, Grants, Revenue Contracts - Department Responsibility for Cost Recovery, except where a waiver is needed. This cost recovery proposal represents the Departments commitment to the Board of Supervisors (Board) to make recovering costs a regular part of our business, while providing stakeholders an opportunity to plan for fee increases.

Tagged Passions:contract, compliance, streets, policy, services, development, rates, diversity, trails, health, construction, environment, parks, funding, grant, Development, and business

For PDS, the average proposed flat fee increase requested in this cost recovery proposal is equivalent to a 4.6 increase, the average intake deposit change is a 3.9 increase, and the average hourly rate change is a 5.4 increase. For DPW, the average proposed flat fee increase is a 4.8 increase, the average intake deposit change is a 1.9 increase and the average hourly rate change is a 2.0 increase. DPR does not use fees or deposits and is only proposing to update its hourly rates; the proposed average hourly rate change is a 7.0 increase.

Tagged Passions:rates

Today s request also includes a waiver of Board Policy B-29 in PDS related to appeals, fees for rebuilding structures damaged or destroyed by natural disaster, and plan check and building fees for the Green Building Incentive Program and Homeowner and Business Owner Relief Act Permits.

3.
Adopt the attached Form of Ordinance entitled: AN ORDINANCE AMENDING PORTIONS OF THE ADMINISTRATIVE CODE RELATING TO FEES AND DEPOSITS FOR THE DEPARTMENTS OF PLANNING DEVELOPMENT SERVICES, PUBLIC WORKS, AND PARKS AND RECREATION (Attachment A).

FISCAL IMPACT The proposed increases to fees and deposits are not included in the budget in Planning Development Services (PDS), the Department of Public Works (DPW), or the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR). If approved, the proposed fee and deposit adjustments will result in additional estimated costs and revenue of 1,000,000 in PDS, 349,000 in DPW, and 1,600 in DPR, effective Fiscal Year 2018-19. The funding source is fees paid by land development project and building permit applicants. A waiver of Board Policy B-29: Fees, Grants, Revenue Contracts - Department Responsibility for Cost Recovery (Board Policy B-29) is requested for appeal fees, fees for rebuilding structures damaged or destroyed by natural disaster, and plan review and permit fees for the Green Building Incentive Program and Homeowner and Business Owner Relief Act permits. These are proposed to be less than full cost recovery and a waiver of Board Policy B-29 is requested since the proposed fees do not cover all operating costs. The total unrecovered cost per Board Policy B-29 is approximately 2.2 million for Fiscal Year 2018-19 and will be funded with General Purpose Revenue. There will be no additional staff years. If approved, funds for this request will be included in the Fiscal Year 2018-19 CAO Recommended Operational Plan in PDS, DPW, and DPR.
Tagged Passions:contract, budget, policy, services, ordinance, Public Works, development, program, planning, parks, funding, grant, recreation, incentive, Development, public works, and business

BUSINESS IMPACT STATEMENT

If approved, these recommendations will enable Planning Development Services, the Department of Public Works, and the Department of Parks and Recreation to maintain high-quality services, while aligning fees to the actual cost of services provided. If approved, these recommendations will allow the Department of Planning Development Services, Department of Public Works, and Department of Parks Recreation to maintain high quality services. These services enhance the livability of our communities and ensure the health and safety of residents by facilitating high quality land development, sufficient recreational opportunities and protect natural resources. These important services allow the land development process to be fair and efficient while ensuring the built environment allows residents to live well and thrive.

SUBJECT: NOTICED PUBLIC HEARING: SET A HEARING FOR 4/25/2018: APPROVAL OF FEE ADJUSTMENTS IN THE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH EFFECTIVE FISCAL YEAR 2018-19 AND ASSOCIATED ORDINANCE REVISIONS (DISTRICTS: ALL)

OVERVIEW The mission of the Department of Environmental Health (DEH) is to protect the environment and enhance public health for all San Diego county residents by preventing disease, promoting environmental responsibility and, when necessary, enforcing environmental and public health laws. Board Policy B-29 directs departments to recover the full cost for services provided to agencies or individuals outside of the County of San Diego. The last cost recovery package for DEH was March 22, 2017 (5) and May 3, 2017 (2). Since the last cost recovery package the Departments have continued to provide services to the public at the approved rates through increased efficiencies and process improvements, as well as achieving cost savings in other categories. Based on Countywide negotiated salary increases that took effect in November 2017, after the last fee adjustment, the fees proposed today, for Fiscal Year 2018-19, will be necessary in order to address cost increases and ensure compliance with Board Policy B-29: Fees, Grants, Revenue Contracts - Department Responsibility for Cost Recovery, except where a waiver is needed. This cost recovery proposal represents the Departments commitment to the Board of Supervisors (Board) to make recovering costs a regular part of our business, while providing stakeholders an opportunity to plan for fee increases. The average DEH proposed fee increase in this cost recovery proposal is equivalent to 6 for annual health permits at retail food facilities, and associated plan check fees, and a 2 increase for land use permit fees, including water well and septic system construction permits. The proposed ordinance also authorizes the recovery of complaint and emergency response costs where specifically authorized. This is a request to adopt ordinance amendments to Title 6 of the County Code of Regulatory Ordinances relating to permit fees, response cost recovery, and procedures for businesses and health regulated activities in DEH effective FY 2018-19.

SUBJECT: ADMINISTRATIVE ITEM: SECOND CONSIDERATION AND ADOPTION OF ORDINANCE: AN ORDINANCE AMENDING TITLE 8, DIVISION 1, OF THE SAN DIEGO COUNTY CODE TO DELEGATE AUTHORITY TO APPROVE FINAL MAPS AND ASSOCIATED IMPROVEMENT AGREEMENTS; AND ADDITIONAL MINOR EDITS (DISTRICTS: ALL)

OVERVIEW On March 28, 2018 (1), the Board of Supervisors introduced the Ordinance for further consideration and adoption on April 18, 2018.

Tagged Passions:ordinance

On December 6, 2017 (5), the Board of Supervisors (Board) directed the Chief Administrative Officer to investigate the feasibility of streamlining the final map approval process by delegating the approval authority to Planning Development Services (PDS), or other departmental authority, for final maps as allowed by State law.

Tagged Passions:services, development, planning, and Development

Today's action recommends revisions of the County Subdivision Ordinance, Title 8, Division 1 of the San Diego County Code to authorize the Director of PDS, or any successor director or designee, to approve final maps and associated improvement agreements. Delegation of the Board s authority will result in greater efficiency by expediting map processing times (reduction of 30-45 days per final map) and reducing costs to applicants (estimated savings of 3,000 to 5,000 per final map). The proposed amendments also refine language to clarify the responsibilities and authority of specific County officials, add specific requirements to notify the County s Community Planning Group and Sponsor Group Chairs regarding final map actions, and include minor clean-up edits.

Lastly, the process under which minor revisions can be approved, and by whom, is described, as directed by the Board.

SUBJECT: HOUSING AFFORDABILITY: ADDRESSING THE REGION S HOUSING CRISIS (DISTRICTS: ALL)

OVERVIEW San Diego County is experiencing a housing crisis. Solving this crisis, and preventing a return, will require a multi-faceted approach and a variety of solutions working together. Promoting housing affordability through production incentives and regulatory policy review is one way this Board can encourage the production of much-needed housing at all income levels, and shore up the regional housing supply by removing unnecessary impediments and/or bolstering the production process. The analysis should include modifying or streamlining permitting processes, reducing production regulations, modifying zoning and use regulations, modifying parking requirements, exploring density bonuses, inclusionary housing, accessory dwelling units, pre-fabricated homes, and other options that would help boost discretionary and ministerial housing production. Today s action will direct the Chief Administrative Officer to investigate options that would further promote the expedient building of homes in the unincorporated region and the closing of the housing gap through incentive programs and/or reductions in regulations in San Diego County, and to return within 180 days with recommendations. RECOMMENDATION(S) SUPERVISOR BILL HORN AND SUPERVISOR DIANNE JACOB 1. Find that the proposed action is not a project under CEQA Guidelines section 15378(b)(5).

SUBJECT: ANNUAL REPORT OF THE COUNTY-MAINTAINED ROAD SYSTEM (DISTRICTS: ALL)

OVERVIEW The Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining public infrastructure including roads, bridges, wastewater and stormwater systems that serve the public and help to ensure safe and thriving communities. DPW uses the Land Use and Environment Group Enterprise Asset Management System (LEAMS) to track the County s infrastructure assets, including the total mileage of County-maintained roads. LEAMS relies on Geographic Information System (GIS) data for accurately tracking and reporting changes in County-maintained road mileage. Section 2121 of the California Streets and Highways Code requires the County of San Diego (County) to annually submit to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) any additions to, or exclusions from, its mileage of maintained County roads. The most recent update was approved by the Board on April 12, 2017 (4), and certified by Caltrans shortly thereafter. The total mileage of County-maintained roads increased by 1.07 centerline miles since the last certification and is now 1,942.98 centerline miles. Total road mileage is used by the State to calculate annual distribution of Gas Tax funds to cities and counties statewide. Today s request is to adopt a resolution to transmit the County s annual report of road mileage to Caltrans. Upon Board approval, the resolution will be submitted to Caltrans to certify the new reported road mileage to the State Controller.

RECOMMENDATION(S) CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER

1. Find that the proposed action is not a project subject to review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to Section 15060(c)(2) of the state CEQA Guidelines, since the proposed action has no direct or reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment. 2. Adopt a Resolution entitled: RESOLUTION OF THE COUNTY OF SAN DIEGO BOARD OF SUPERVISORS TRANSMITTING THE ANNUAL REPORT TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION OF THE COUNTY S MAINTAINED ROADS - 2018.

SUBJECT: EXTENSION OF PERFORMANCE COMPLETION DATES ON VARIOUS BONDED AGREEMENTS TO COMPLETE SUBDIVISION IMPROVEMENTS (DISTRICT: 5)

OVERVIEW

Tagged Passions:subdivision, performance, and bond

San Diego County Code of Regulatory Ordinances (County Code) Section 81.405 establishes the requirements for time extensions for completion of required improvements on major subdivisions. This is a request for the Board of Supervisors to approve a two-year extension of performance completion dates for the following subdivisions:

District 5: 1. TM 4805-1, Robin Court, located in the North County Metropolitan Subregional Plan Area. This project has seven approved residential lots and the overall acreage is 7.33 acres.

2.
TM 5110-1, Belmont Estates, located in the Valley Center Community Plan Area. This

No additional detail provided

project has 14 approved residential lots and the overall acreage is 34.83 acres.

Subdivision Improvement Agreements and their bonding requirements protect the County by ensuring required improvements are constructed for approved and mapped subdivisions. The extensions are in the best interest of the County, and involve the evaluation of previously approved amounts of security. The Department of Public Works has reviewed these subdivisions and determined a two-year extension to complete improvements is warranted. Staff has also determined that there is adequate improvement security for each of the maps to guarantee completion of remaining work for each agreement recommended for extension. Today s request is for the Board to approve a two-year extension of performance completion dates for the above listed subdivisions in accordance with County Code.

Find in accordance with Section 15060(c)(3) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines that extension of agreements to complete subdivision improvements is not a project as defined in Section 15378 of the state CEQA Guidelines. 2. Extend, to April 18, 2020, the performance completion dates in subdivision agreements for developments referenced by Tentative Map Nos. 4805-1 and 5110-1.

SUBJECT: SET A HEARING FOR 5/16/2018: SANTA YSABEL PRESERVE - ACQUISITION OF APPROXIMATELY 722 ACRES OF OPEN SPACE PRESERVE LAND (VICTOR R. CAUZZA AND JULIE D. CAUZZA) AND AUTHORITY TO AMEND AGRICULTURAL LAND CONSERVATION CONTRACT NUMBER 6490 4900 (4/18/2018 - SET HEARING; 5/16/2018 HOLD HEARING) (DISTRICT: 2)

OVERVIEW

Tagged Passions:contract, hearing, agriculture, and Conservation

Since 1998, the County of San Diego (County) has acquired more than 19,500 acres of open space land for the County s Multiple Species Conservation Program (MSCP) to ensure the long-term survival of sensitive plant and animal species and balance the public need for development and open space. The County has identified approximately 722 acres of vacant land available in Santa Ysabel to purchase for the MSCP and has entered into an agreement providing the County the option to purchase the land. Acquisition of the property, immediately east of State Route (SR) 79 and north of the Santa Ysabel Mission, would add more high value habitat and space for wildlife to roam on the existing 5,584-acre Santa Ysabel Preserve. In 2015, a County acquisition of 175 acres southwest of this property linked two separated portions of the Santa Ysabel Preserve. This acquisition provides an opportunity to potentially complete a non-motorized, multi-use trail linking those portions, subject to future funding and environmental review. In addition to the proposed 722-acre acquisition from owner Victor R. Cauzza and Julie D. Cauzza, an additional 30 acres of land adjacent to the northwest part of the Preserve, owned by the Santa Ysabel Ranch, LLC has been identified as a potential acquisition for a later date.

SUBJECT: SET A HEARING FOR 5/09/2018: YALDA OPEN SPACE VACATION, PDS2015-VAC-15-002; VALLE DE ORO COMMUNITY PLAN AREA (04/18/2018 - SET HEARING; 05/09/2018 - HOLD HEARING) (DISTRICT: 2)

OVERVIEW

Tagged Passions:hearing

This is a request for the Board of Supervisors (Board) to consider the vacation of an open space easement (Vacation) and adopt the Environmental Findings for the project. The Vacation has

Wednesday, April 18, 2018 14 been reviewed for conformance and complies with Board Policy I-103: Open Space Easement Vacations and the California Streets and Highways Code. The open space easement was originally recorded on December 24, 2003 in order to comply with the Valle de Oro Community Plan which requires properties with an average slope of over 25 to place 70 of the property in natural open space to preserve community character. The open space easement was not required for environmental mitigation. The project site consists of 0.81-acres and is located at 1432 Fuerte Heights Lane within the Valle de Oro Community Plan Area. The Vacation will allow a 15,770-square foot open space easement to be replaced with a new 24,583-square foot open space easement via a subsequent dedication to be recorded concurrently. This Vacation and subsequent dedication will resolve a grading violation, increase the preserved open space by 8,813 square feet, and will demonstrate compliance with the Valle de Oro Community Plan.
Tagged Passions:compliance, property, streets, policy, grading, easement, and environment

Board Policy I-103 requires the Board take two actions: first on April 18, 2018, it is requested that the Board set a date for a public hearing on May 9, 2018, and provide public notice of that hearing. If the Board takes the actions recommended on April 18, 2018, then on May 9, 2018, it is requested that the Board consider and adopt a resolution to vacate the referenced open space easement, record A RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF THE COUNTY OF SAN DIEGO VACATING OPEN SPACE EASEMENT PDS2015-VAC-15-002, and record the OPEN SPACE EASEMENT (Steep Slopes) concurrently.

RECOMMENDATION(S) CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER On April 18, 2018:

2.
Direct the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors (Clerk) to provide notice of the hearing via publication and posting as required by law.

Tagged Passions:hearing

If on April 18, 2018 the Board of Supervisors takes the actions recommended in items 1 and 2 above, then, on May 9, 2018: 1. Adopt the environmental findings included in Attachment C, which includes findings in

accordance with Sections 15061(b)(3) and 15304 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines that the proposed vacation has been reviewed for compliance with CEQA. The project is exempt from CEQA because it consists of minor private alterations in the condition of land and vegetation which do not involve removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees. The open space in question has no biological or topographical sensitivity and is not subject to the Resource Protection Ordinance. The sole purpose of the open space dedication is to satisfy Valle de Oro s Community Design Guidelines. This project is also exempt because the activity is covered by the general rule that CEQA applies only to projects which have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. It can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment.
