There are 23 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 eight 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). Two pending proposals involve city annexations in South County, one to eliminate a large unincorporated island containing the Otay Mesa Landfill (Chula Vista), the other to facilitate commercial development on Sweetwater Road (National City). 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.
