APN 523-18-021. Annexation Application AN21-004. Project Location: 16253 Roseleaf Lane. Property Owner/Applicant: Jindan Li. RECOMMENDATION: Adopt a resolution (Attachment 1) making determinations and approving the reorganization of an uninhabited area designated as Roseleaf Lane No. 1, approximately 1.3534 acres, located at 16253 Roseleaf Lane (APN 523-18-021). 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 for a modification to the existing single-family residence. The total annexation area (1.3534 acres) includes 1.1472 acres of 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. PAGE 2 OF 2 SUBJECT: Roseleaf Lane No. 1/AN21-004 DATE: February 24, 2022 BACKGROUND (continued): This annexation was introduced at the February 15, 2022, Town Council meeting and the protest proceedings are set for March 1, 2022. DISCUSSION: The Town has received a petition requesting annexation to the Town of Los Gatos from Jindan Li, owner of the property at 16253 Roseleaf Lane. The property is located on the south side of Roseleaf Lane in an unincorporated County pocket. The property is in the Town's Urban Service Area, is contiguous to a 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. The Santa Clara County Planning, County Lighting Service Area, and the County Library Service Area have been notified in writing of the annexation request. COORDINATION: The preparation of this report was coordinated with the Santa Clara County Library District, Santa Clara County Lighting Service Area, County of Santa Clara Infrastructure Development Division, LAFCO, County of Santa Clara Assessor, County of Santa Clara Surveyor, and the County of Santa Clara Planning Division. FISCAL IMPACT: Once the annexation is certified by the State Board of Equalization, the Town will receive approximately 9.3 percent of the property taxes. ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT: The project is exempt pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act Guidelines under Section 15061(b)(3): Review for Exemption, in that it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment. A Notice of Exemption will not be filed. Attachments: 1. Resolution, with Exhibits A and B 2. Location Map
