BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS:

Annual Development Impact Fee Financial Report

In accordance with Government Code Section 66006(b), the City is required to make information regarding certain Development Impact Fee funds available on an annual basis, for the previous fiscal year.  The disclosure of the information to the public must be made within 180 days after the end of the fiscal year, and the City Council must review the disclosure statements not less than 15 days after the disclosure is made. The disclosures have been on file for public viewing in the City Clerk’s office and the Finance Department since November 26, 2018.  The disclosure statements are attached to this report as the Annual Development Impact Fee Financial Report (Report). There were no requests for notification of this information on file with the City Clerk; therefore, none were made.  For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, no refunds were made pursuant to subdivision (e) of Section 66001 and there were no allocations pursuant to subdivision (f) of Section 66001.
 
Government Code Sections 66001(e) and 66006(b) requires that the City identify an approximate date by which the construction of the public improvement will be commenced if sufficient funds in Development Fee funds have been collected to complete financing on incomplete public improvements identified in the Capital Improvement Program (CIP), General Plan, a Specific Plan, or other public documents, and the public improvements remain incomplete within 180 days of the determination that sufficient funds have been collected, or refund the unexpended portion of the fees.  Section 3 of the Report illustrates the current and future capital projects as of June 30, 2018.  All funds collected have been committed to capital improvement projects as set forth in the Development Impact Fee Program Evaluation prepared by David Taussig & Associates, Inc. in 2018, the Capital Improvement Program (CIP), General Plan, a Specific Plan, or other public documents, other similar studies, and the adopted budget.
 
Parkland (Quimby in-lieu) Fee Fund
 
Government Code Section 66477(a)(6)(A)(i) requires the City to develop a schedule specifying how, when, and where it will use the Parkland (Quimby in-lieu) land or fees, or both, to develop park or recreational facilities to serve the residents of the subdivision.  Any fees collected under Ordinance No. 66 shall be committed within five years after the payment of the fees or the issuance of building permits on one-half of the lots created by the subdivision, whichever occurs later. If the fees are not committed, the fees must be distributed to the record owners of the subdivision.

The Parkland (Quimby in-lieu) Fee schedule attached as Section 4 of the Report confirms that the City is committed to funding the construction of Los Serranos Park (formerly known as Bird Farm Park) in an amount of $1,500,000, of which the Parkland (Quimby in-lieu) Fee Fund will be responsible for 50%, or $750,000.  Also, the City has reserved $916,984 of the Parkland (Quimby in-lieu) Fees for the reimbursement of Pinehurst Park construction costs, which was completed recently by the developer. Based on the terms of Agreement No. A14-34, the developer will be reimbursed for all approved construction costs following the completion of an audit of these costs.  If not all of the Parkland (Quimby in-lieu) Fee is needed for the above mentioned projects, then any remaining funds will be recommitted to other parks projects that benefit the relevant subdivisions, or the funds will be refunded.

ENVIRONMENTAL (CEQA) REVIEW:
This proposed action is exempt from review under the California Environmental Quality Act (California Public Resources Code §§ 21000, et seq.; “CEQA”) and CEQA regulations (14 California Code Regulations §§ 15000, et seq.) because it does not involve any commitment to a specific project which could result in a potentially significant physical impact on the environment; and constitutes an organizational or administrative activity that will not result in direct or indirect physical changes in the environment. Accordingly, this action does not constitute a “project” that requires environmental review (see specifically 14 CCR § 15378(b)(4-5)).
FISCAL IMPACT:
None.
REVIEWED BY OTHERS:
This agenda item has been reviewed by the City Attorney, the Community Development Director and the Public Works Director.
