Title

HEARING - The Board is asked to consider a request from the El Dorado Hills Community Services District to adopt and authorize the Chair to sign Resolution 022-2021 increasing development impact mitigation fees for parks and recreation by 2% based on the change in the Annual Consumer Price Index Adjustment for Calendar Year 2020.

Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

The California Mitigation Fee Act (Cal. Gov. Code §§ 66000-66025) provides for the establishment of fees on new development for the purpose of mitigating the effects of development on existing public facilities.  Special districts do not have statutory authority to impose these fees.  As a result, the Board of Supervisors has passed an ordinance providing for the establishment of such fees on behalf of special districts. The ordinance was codified as Chapter 13.20.

 

Parks and recreation development impact mitigation fees were first collected on the District's behalf in 1998. The current fees are based on a Fee Nexus Study and Report (“Report”) detailing the legal and policy basis justifying the development impact mitigation fee within the District. The  fee was updated in 2018, by adoption of Resolution 135-2018 (Legistar File 18-1034).

 

Resolution 135-2018 did not include a provision for automatic annual inflationary adjustments to the fee because any increase to the fee must be made by resolution of the Board of Supervisors at a notice public hearing, pursuant to the Mitigation Fee Act. On November 10, 2020, the Board adopted Resolution 166-2020 increasing the fees by 3.3% based on the change in the Annual Consumer Price Index (CPI) Adjustment for Calendar Year 2019.

 

On February 17, 2021, the District adopted Resolution No. 2021-02 adopting an increase to the fees of 2%, based on the change in the Annual Consumer Price Index (CPI) Adjustment for Calendar Year 2020, and requesting the Board of Supervisors adopt the 2% increase to the established impact fees.

 

The proposed fees are as follows:

 

Current Fee                                          2020 CPI Adj. (2%)

Single Family Residential:                                                                                     $ 12,105                                          $ 12,347

Multi-Family Res. & Affordable Housing                                           $ 7,989                                           $ 8,149

Age-Restricted Residential                                                                                     $ 7,074                                          $ 7,215

Serrano Single Family Residential                                           $ 6,472                                          $ 6,601

Serrano Multi-Family Residential                                                                $ 4,271                                          $ 4,356

Serrano Age-Restricted Residential                                           $ 3,754                                           $ 3,829

Mobile Home Park Homes                                                                                     Exempt                                           Exempt

Accessory Dwelling Units                                                                                     Exempt                                           Exempt

 

Notice of today's public hearing was published in the Mountain Democrat on March 26, 2021 and April 2, 2021.

 

If approved by the Board, the revised fees will become effective 60 days following the Board's adoption of the resolution.  The County Planning and Building Department currently calculates and collects the fee, and will continue to do so as provided in the collection and indemnity agreement approved by the Board of Supervisors on December 19, 2017 (Legistar File 17-1355).

 

ALTERNATIVES

If the Board does not adopt this resolution, the existing fees would continue in effect.

CAO RECOMMENDATION

Approve as recommended.

 

FINANCIAL IMPACT

There is no direct fiscal impact to the County related to adoption of the fee other than the cost to publish the notice of the required public hearing.  The calculation, collection, and disbursement of fee revenue require some County staff time, the cost of which may be recovered through an administrative fee.
