There are 22 active proposals currently on file with San Diego LAFCO as of date. The active proposals range in scope from pre‐Commission (13) to post‐Commission (9) with the latter category representing items already approved but awaiting the completion of conducting authority proceedings (i.e., protest) or terms. No new proposal has been filed since the last Commission meeting in December.
There are five substantive proposals staff expects to be submitted to San Diego LAFCO during the fiscal year 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 relatively large unincorporated residential development project west of the City of Escondido – Harmony Grove Village South – and would require annexations to one or more special districts. One or more reorganization proposals by Fallbrook Public Utility District and Rainbow Municipal Water District to detach from County Water Authority and annex to Eastern Municipal Water District are also expected.
