RECOMMENDATION:

Adopt a resolution entitled: A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS, ACTING IN ITS CAPACITY AS THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE CHINO HILLS VELLANO LANDSCAPING AND LIGHTING DISTRICT TO CONFIRM THE ANNUAL ASSESSMENTS AND ORDER THE LEVY AND COLLECTION OF ASSESSMENTS FOR THE CHINO HILLS VELLANO LANDSCAPING AND LIGHTING DISTRICT, PURSUANT TO PROVISIONS OF THE LANDSCAPING AND LIGHTING ACT OF 1972 (STREETS AND HIGHWAYS CODE, SECTION 22500 ET SEQ.).

BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS:
The Chino Hills Vellano Landscape and Lighting District was formed to provide street lighting, parks, open space, landscaping maintenance, and improvements throughout the District. Annually, the City Council must hold a public hearing to review the cost of operation for landscape and lighting as presented in the Engineer’s Annual Levy Report and to set the annual assessments on properties within the District. On February 11, 2020, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 2020R-008 ordering the Engineer's Annual Levy Report for FY 2020/21. On May 27, 2020, the City Council set June 23, 2020 as the date for the public hearing. The Engineer’s Annual Levy Report for FY 2020/21, with proposed assessments and District map, has been on file and available for public review since May 27, 2020.

The proposed FY 2020/2021 levy is  $1,139.16, a 5% increase over the prior year levy of $1,084.92. This increase will cover the increased maintenance costs of the District.
ENVIRONMENTAL (CEQA) REVIEW:

The proposed project is categorically exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA pursuant to Title 14 California Code of Regulations § 15301 (h) as a Class 1 Categorical Exemption (Existing Facilities). The project involves maintenance of existing landscape and lighting and is not anticipated to have any significant impacts with regard to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality.

FISCAL IMPACT:

The total costs for the District are $263,484 and the proposed levy is $247,789. This offset by revenues from other sources of $5,415 will result in a fund balance contribution of $10,280.  There is no impact to the General Fund with this item.
