Title
HEARING - Consider adoption of Resolution superseding Resolution 290-2007 approving the Rescue Fire Protection District Capital Improvement Plan and adopting Development Impact Fees.  (Est. Time: 5 Min.) (Cont'd 7/19/11, Item 36)
 
FUNDING: Fire Impact Fees.
Body
 
Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost: There will be no impact to the General Fund.  Fees are levied upon new development and are collected by the Development Services Department.
 
Background: Pursuant to California Government Code, El Dorado County Ordinance No. 3991, and the Policy and Procedures for Annual Approval and Authorization of Fire District Development Impact Fees adopted by your Board, the Rescue Fire Protection District has submitted their Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and request for development impact fees for County review and authorization. As a part of the County's review each district is required to submit, in addition to the CIP, a certified copy of the Districts' Resolution approving the CIP, request for development impact fees and a copy of the public notice as it appeared in the local newspaper.  After reviewing the documentation submitted by each district, staff requests that the Planning Commission review the CIP for a "finding of consistency" with the General Plan.  Upon such finding, staff then requests a public hearing with the Board for review and approval of the CIP and request for development impact fees.  Upon approval the Development Services Department is notified and requested to collect the development impact fee for each building permit issued within the boundaries of said district.
 
Reason for Recommendation: The Rescue Fire Protection District is requesting the Board review and authorize their Capital Improvement Plan and adopt the development impact fees as listed. The district is proposing an increase to their current fees.

Chief Administrative Office staff has reviewed the Capital Improvement Plan and finds it to be in compliance with the Policy and Procedure for Annual Approval and Authorization of Fire District Development Impact Fees.  The Planning Commission has found the Plan to be consistent with the General Plan.  Fees were last approved on November 27, 2007 by resolution 290-2007.

1.      The Board of Supervisors will approve and the Chairman will sign the Resolution approving the Rescue Fire Protection District's Capital Improvement Plan and the Development Impact Fees as set forth in the Resolution.
