Body

BACKGROUND

On April 18, 2016, the City of Chino Planning Commission conditionally approved Site Approval 15-0898 for a 37,005 square foot skilled nursing facility on 2.99 acres located on the north side of Walnut Avenue between 10th Street and Vernon Avenue (Exhibit A).  The project and adjacent commercial properties are currently in Zone 61 of Landscape and Street Lighting Maintenance District No. MD 83-2 (L&SLAD No. MD 83-2).  Because L&SLAD No. MD 83-2 does not include an escalation factor to increase the levy as maintenance costs increase, the general funds needed to cover the deficit between revenue and costs for older landscape and street lighting districts has continued to increase over the years.  Landscaping and Lighting District No. 2002-1 has an escalation factor that allows levies to increase up to the Consumer’s Price Index.  Therefore, the conditions of approval for Site Approval 15-0898 require the owner to detach from L&SLAD No. MD 83-2 and to annex the property into the City’s Landscaping and Lighting District No. 2002-1. The street lights will be owned by the City.  The landscaping on the property and perimeter of the project shall be the responsibility of the property owner.

 

ISSUES/ANALYSIS

The property owner has filed the required petition to be annexed into the City’s Landscaping and Lighting District.  In addition, the property owner filed with the City Clerk an assessment ballot in favor of annexation.  According to State law, if a petition to the City of Chino to undertake annexation proceedings, and an assessment ballot in favor of the proposed assessment are obtained from the owner of the property involved in the annexation, Council may complete the annexation by adopting a resolution annexing the project into the City’s Landscaping and Lighting District No. 2002-1.

 

It is estimated that the annual assessment for this project will be $477.97 for the first year.  The actual assessment will be based on actual costs and the assessment amount is subject to change each year to account for maintenance and energy cost changes up to the annual Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the region.  Staff has determined that the revenue collected from the property owners will cover the cost for maintenance, energy and reserves for unforeseen repairs for the property owner’s fair share of three (3) street lights located as shown in Exhibit A.
