Current Council Agenda and Past Meeting Information

Past Agendas



Meeting Date: October 10, 2000

Subject/Title: Response to LAFCO’s request for comments on their annexation and sphere of influence policies. 

Submitted by: Mitch Oshinsky, Community Development Director

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

That Council consider the written comments I’ve already provided to LAFCO, and determine whether they have additional comments.


On September 13, 2000, LAFCO agendized an item to request input from cities on their adopted policies concerning annexations and spheres of influence, for a discussion beginning at the October 11th LAFCO meeting.

Attached is a copy of the relevant LAFCO policies. The General Policy Statement refers to the responsibilities of LAFCO per State law, and in relation to setting logical local agency boundaries, such as Urban Limit Lines. This policy includes the statement that: “Although not bound by policies of other agencies, it is the general policy of LAFCO to honor the limits placed on urban development by other agencies. Therefore, LAFCO generally has honored the County Urban Limit Line (ULL), discouraging sphere of influence amendments and annexations beyond the ULL.” 

I have responded to LAFCO on their policies in the attached letter dated September 29, 2000. Following discussion, it is suggested that if Council has further comments, that they direct staff to pass those on to LAFCO.
