PROJECT LOCATION: 16400 HILOW ROAD. PROPERTY OWNER/APPLICANT: JASON HALLADAY. ADOPT A RESOLUTION TO SET A DATE FOR CONSIDERATION OF REORGANIZATION OF AN UNINHABITED AREA DESIGNATED AS HILOW ROAD NO. 8, APPROXIMATELY 0.27 ACRES ON PROPERTY PRE-ZONED R-1:8. APN 532-04-079. RECOMMENDATION: Adopt a resolution (Attachment 2) to set a date for consideration of a reorganization of an uninhabited area designated as Hilow Road No. 8, approximately 0.27 acres, located at 16400 Hilow Road (APN 532-04-079). 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. Annexation has been requested in conjunction with a proposal to construct a new second story addition to an existing single- family residence on the property. The total annexation area (0.27 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 (less than twelve registered voters) and all property owners have consented to the annexation.

DISCUSSION: The Town has received a petition requesting annexation to the Town of Los Gatos from Jason Halladay, owner of the property at 16400 Hilow Road, in order to construct a new second story addition to an existing single-family residence on the property. The property is located on the east side of Hilow Road 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-1:8 (Single-Family Residential, 8,000 square foot minimum lot size). Annexation would allow Town services to be extended to the property and reduce an existing County pocket. Santa Clara County Planning and the County Library Service Area have been notified in writing of the annexation request. This agenda item, if approved, would set the date for consideration of the annexation application for September 19, 2017. FISCAL IMPACT: Once the annexation is certified by the State Board of Equalization, the Town will receive 9.6 percent 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, and is Categorically Exempt under Section 15061(b)(3). A Notice of Exemption will not be filed. Attachments: 1. Location Map 2.
