ORDINANCE ADOPTION - Avila Ranch Development Agreement Amendment

Post Date:04/11/2019
ORDINANCE NO. 1662 (2019 Series)

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SAN LUIS OBISPO, CALIFORNIA, APPROVING THE FIRST AMENDMENT TO THE AVILA RANCH DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT TO RECOGNIZE THE INTENT OF BOTH THE CITY AND THE DEVELOPER THAT THE PROJECT BE SUBJECT TO FEES INCLUDED IN THE PENDING UPDATE OF THE LOS OSOS VALLEY ROAD FEE PROGRAM, AS REPRESENTED IN THE STAFF REPORT AND ATTACHMENTS DATED APRIL 2, 2019 

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of San Luis Obispo, California, at its Regular Meeting of April 2, 2019, introduced the above titled ordinance upon a motion by Council Member Christianson, second by Council Member Gomez, and on the following roll call vote:

AYES: Council Members Aaron Gomez, Carlyn Christianson, Erica Stewart,
Vice Mayor Andy Pease, and Mayor Heidi Harmon
NOES: None

Ordinance No. 1662 (2019 Series) - Avila Ranch, LLC has an approved development agreement related to its residential development with up to 720 units on a 150-acre site north of Buckley Road within the boundaries of the Airport Area Specific Plan (“AASP”). The project as approved includes a Development Agreement (DA) and is envisioned to implement the policies and development parameters as articulated in the 2014 Land Use and Circulation Elements (LUCE) update. An amendment to the Development Agreement has been approved to address a delay in the completion of an update to the Los Osos Valley Road (LOVR) Interchange Impact Add-On Fee. The City had committed to updating this fee program to reflect the land uses within the Avila Ranch project and changes to other land uses contemplated within the fee program area. Avila Ranch is now ready to record the first phase of its Final Map for the subdivision, however, according to the DA doing so would lock fees in place at their current amounts. Because the current fee structure does not accurately reflect the land uses in the Avila Ranch project, an update to the DA to allow for this fee to be updated in the future is necessary.

NOTICE IS HEREBY FURTHER GIVEN that the City Council of the City of San Luis Obispo will consider adopting the aforementioned Ordinance at its Regular Meeting of April 16, 2019 at 6:00 p.m., which will be held in the Council Chamber, located at 990 Palm Street, San Luis Obispo, California.

Copies of the complete ordinance are available in the City Clerk's Office in City Hall and online at www.slocity.org.  For more information, contact Michael Codron, 781-7187.
