ON HACIENDA HEIGHTS INCORPORATION
AGENDA ITEM NO. 3A
The matter before you today
is a Protest Hearing on the incorporation of the Hacienda Heights area. The purpose for the hearing is to allow the
Commission to hear and receive any oral or written protests, objections, and
evidence that is made regarding this proposal, by any registered voter residing
within the subject territory.
The Hacienda Heights area encompasses approximately
10.2 miles of unincorporated County territory and is bounded to the north
by the City of Industry, to the west by the City of
Whittier and the Puente Hills, to the
east by Rowland Heights and to the south by the City
of La Habra Heights. The application
for a change of organization was initiated by registered-voter petition and
the request was submitted to the Local Agency Formation Commission on December 8, 1999. The proponent of record for
this proposal is the Hacienda Heights Cityhood Organization.
On November 26, 2002, the Los Angeles County Board
of Supervisors approved a $19 million revenue neutrality position for the
Hacienda Heights Incorporation Proposal that was consistent with LAFCO staff
recommendation to the Commission. The
applicants also indicated that they were willing to except the Executive Officer’s
recommendation as well.
On December 11, 2002, the Commission adopted the
requisite “Resolution Making Determinations and Approving the Proposed Incorporation
of the City of Hacienda Heights.” The resolution specifies the terms and conditions
of incorporation and provides for a revenue neutrality payment of $18,983,278,
to the County, to be paid over a period of ten years.
Notice of Protest Hearing was
published on December 17, 2002, in the Los Angeles Times,
The San Gabriel Valley Tribune, La Opinion and the Chinese Daily News. The request for reconsideration period ended
on January 13, 2003, without any requests for reconsideration
being timely submitted. LAFCO has not
received any written protests to date.
Instruct the Executive Officer,
pursuant to Government Code Section 57077, to determine the value of protests
filed and not withdrawn and
report back to the Commission with the results.
upon the results of the protest hearing, either terminate the incorporation proceedings if a majority protest exists
in accordance with Government Code Section 57078
or adopt the attached resolution ordering the incorporation and
formation of the new City of Hacienda Heights subject to the confirmation
of the voters and requesting that the Board of Supervisors of the County of Los Angeles
call a special election on June 3, 2003, in the unincorporated
area of Hacienda Heights, for that purpose.
The properties SHALL BE SUBJECT to these!!!
County departments are never lead agencies, they
do everything in the name of the County.
