There are 25 active proposals currently on file with San Diego LAFCO as of date. The active proposals range in scope from pre-hearing to post-hearing with the latter category representing items already approved by the Commission but awaiting the completion of conducting authority proceedings (i.e., protest) or terms.
There are seven potential new and substantive proposals staff expects to be submitted to San Diego LAFCO in the near-term from local agencies based on ongoing discussions with proponents. Three of these pending proposals involve city annexations in North County to accommodate relatively large residential subdivision projects and include Safari Highlands (Escondido), Sager Ranch (Escondido), and Rancho Lomas Verdes (Vista). Another pending proposal involves a city annexation in South County to eliminate a large unincorporated island containing the Otay Mesa Landfill (Chula Vista). Other pending proposals involve relatively large unincorporated residential development projects west of the City of Escondido – Valiano (Eden Hills) and Harmony Grove Village South – and would require annexations to one or more special districts. A joint-reorganization proposal by Fallbrook Public Utility District and Rainbow Municipal Water District to detach from County Water Authority and annex to Eastern Municipal Water District is also expected.
