PROJECT LOCATION: 16457 ENGLEWOOD AVENUE. PROPERTY OWNER: CLAYTON WAYMAN. APPLICANT: ERIC BECKSTROM. ADOPT A RESOLUTION MAKING DETERMINATIONS AND APPROVING THE REORGANIZATION OF TERRITORY DESIGNATED AS ENGLEWOOD AVENUE NO. 11, APPROXIMATELY 0.47 ACRE PROPERTY PRE-ZONED R-1:20. APN 532-05-014. RECOMMENDATION: Adopt a resolution (Attachment 2) making determinations and approving the reorganization of territory designated as Englewood Avenue No. 11, approximately 0.47 acres, located at 16457 Englewood Avenue (APN 532-05-014). BACKGROUND: The Town has an agreement with Santa Clara County that requires annexation of any property located within the Town's Urban Service Area boundary that is either contiguous to a Town boundary or within 300 feet of a Town maintained roadway if a use is proposed to intensify. The subject property is contiguous to a Town boundary. A nnexation has been requested in conjunction with a proposal demolish an existing single-family residence and construct a new single-family residence on the property. The total annexation area (0.47 acres) includes no County street right-of-way. Section 56757 of the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000 gives cities in Santa Clara County the authority to annex territory without application to and hearing by the Santa Clara County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO). The Town is required to hold a protest proceeding even if the area proposed for annexation is uninhabited and all property owners have consented to the annexation. This annexation was PAGE 2 OF 2 SUBJECT: ENGLEWOOD AVENUE NO. 11/AN17-005 AUGUST 21, 2017 S:\COUNCIL REPORTS\2017\09-05-17\Englewood Ave No. 11\Staff Report - 16457 Englewood Ave. FINAL.docx 8/30/2017 11:17 AM BACKGROUND (Continued): introduced at the August 1, 2017 Town Council meeting and the protest proceedings are set for September 5, 2017. DISCUSSION: The Town has received a petition requesting annexation to the Town of Los Gatos from Clay Wayman, owner of the property at 16457 Englewood Avenue. The property is located on the west side of Englewood Avenue in an unincorporated County pocket. The property is in the Town's Urban Service Area, is contiguous to the Town boundary, and is pre-zoned R-1:20 (Single-Family Residential, 20,000 square foot minimum lot size). Annexation would allow Town services to be extended to the property and reduce an existing County pocket. Since this is an 100 percent consent, uninhabited annexation (less than twelve registered voters), a public hearing is not required. Required notice of the annexation was provided to Santa Clara County Planning and the County Library Service Area. FISCAL IMPACT: Once the annexation is certified by the State Board of Equalization, the Town will receive 9.6% of the property taxes. COORDINATION: The preparation of this report was coordinated with the Santa Clara County Library District, LAFCO, County of Santa Clara County Assessor, County of Santa Clara County Surveyor, and the Santa Clara County Planning Division. ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT: This is a project as defined under CEQA, but is Categorically Exempt under Section 15061(b)(3). A Notice of Exemption will not be filed. Attachments: 1. Location Map 2.
