City of Indio City Council Minutes May 4, 2005 continued

PUBLIC COMMENT The following persons spoke under public comment to include Cary Carlson who requested the City's support of Measure "D" to raise funds for additional new schools; Doug York President of the CV Museum and Historical Society, requested direction as to city staff on their goals and he was directed to work with the city manager; Ivan Price thanked Council and Staff that helped with Pioneer Day, April 16. 1. PUBLIC HEARING: MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION, CHANGE OF ZONE 04-11-626, PROJECT MASTER PLAN 04-11-36 AND TENTATIVE TRACT NO. 33012, LAS BOUGANVILLAS Paul Ireland, Interim Community Development/Building & Safety Services Director, reported the City Council continued this matter from the April 6, 2005 meeting to allow the applicant time to address concerns of various individuals in the vicinity of the site. The applicant is requesting an additional continuance to June 1, 2005 in order to provide sufficient time to continue discussions with the residents in the area. It was moved by Councilmember Godfrey, seconded by Councilmember Wilson and unanimously carried to CONTINUE this matter to June 1, 2005 as requested by the applicant. 2. PUBLIC HEARING: CAMEO HOMES/INDIO 130, LLC ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT 05-1-416; TENTATIVE MAP NO. 33089; CHANGE OF ZONE 04-11628 AND APPEAL OF PLANNING COMMISSION'S APPROVAL Councilmember Ramos Watson stated she has a financial interest in this matter and recused herself and stepped out of the room. Paul Ireland, Interim Community Development/Building & Safety Services Director, reported that on April 6, 2005, a Planning Commissioner submitted a timely appeal of the Environmental Assessment, Tentative Map and Design Review requesting that these be returned to the Planning Commission. In addition to the appeal, Staff has met with the developer and has explained the need to review this development to insure quality projects within the City. All of the matters before Council should be returned to the Planning Commission. Mayor Fesmire declared the public hearing opened at 6:23 p.m. and requested comments from the public for or against this proposal. Victor Mahony representing the applicant, stated they have agreed to return this project to the Planning Commission to clear up the ambiguities, specifically the multi-family units. He stated this project includes 100 single family detached homes. He is looking

City of Indio City Council Minutes May 4, 2005 continued

forward to working with Staff to return this project for Council consideration in the next forty five days. Councilmernber Godfrey asked if in the single family detached homes, all the land will be a common area? Mr. Mahony replied yes it is common area and all will be maintained by the homeowners and the front and common areas will be maintained by the homeowners association. Lana Hall indicated the applicant stated they were not condos and therefore, they were not subject to ADA Act. She stated there is no parking on the two streets which bind this project which are Hoover Street to the south and Fred Waring to the north and there is no parking allowed on either side of those streets. This is directly adjacent to the Work Force Development Center. This project does not seem to be "raising the bar". She requested the Council oppose this project and this property should remain commercial zoned. Jim Collins stated he is concerned with the safety which is a grave question of the surrounding areas of the Work Force Development Center. They have a staff that commutes as pedestrians. He stated he feels the property can best be used as commercial property and an extension of College of the Desert. He suggested we should be projecting an educational system beyond high school in our city. He stated the traffic is outrageous and the only parking available is at the Work Force Center. There being no further comments from the public, Mayor Fesmire declared the public hearing closed. It was moved by Councilmember Wilson, seconded by Councilmember Gilbert and carried to RETURN this matter to the Planning Commission, by the following vote: AYES: Gilbert, Godfrey, Wilson, Fesmire NOES: None ABSTAIN: Ramos Watson 3. PUBLIC HEARING: INCREASE IN CAPITAL IMPACT FEES LEVIED ON NEW DEVELOPMENT Roy Stephenson, Interim Public Works Director, reported the development fees in Indio have not been increased since 1985 and it is crucial such fees be updated immediately to support the level of facilities such as parks, roads, public safety and water improvements needed by residents of the new developments. Such improvements include additional water distribution facilities to include transmission systems and storage systems as well as to upgrade facilities to meet those demands. The tremendous growth places demands for more public facilities, upgrading and building new facilities. The construction costs for labor and materials have probably quadrupled and land values have increased as well. The City is faced with huge challenges to

acquire the land for the facilities the new residents will demand. The proposed rate increase is as follows:

Mr. Stephenson stated the urgency is the City must implement appropriate development fees critical for the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Indio. Without these fees paid in a timely manner, the City's ability to meet the demands for service is jeopardized. The City requests the fees be paid with the issuance of the building permit. If we have to wait for that money to come in we cannot guarantee the ability to serve water. The same thing holds true with the streets. The pace of development is putting a tremendous strain on the cost of the development.
This is not legal, there is no emergency. Study done 3 years ago. Done as emergency so they could use the increase impact fees on Area1 CFD 2004-3. By law, the impact fees must be disclosed by Resolution and Intent which outlines those fees. The emergency showed up May 4, 2005. The resolution and Intent on 4 immediately for these increased fees. If no emergency May 18, 2005. The City made $3.6 million the older fees would be $3.6 million less.

City of Indio City Council Minutes May 4, 2005 continued

No review was done. No hearing. Minimal if any notice. Now billing #1 show 1484 homes charged. What is worse it was the highest rate.

Staff recommends Council adopt the Capital Impact Fee Study as presented; adopt the urgency ordinance implementing the new fees effective immediately; adopt the regular ordinance and direct Staff to prepare a comprehensive and expanded fee study to insure the level of development fees is appropriate for the costs of the improvements needed, within the next ninety days.
Trendwest Crisis, not Area 1's problem.

Glenn Southard, City Manager, stated the city has an infra-structure crisis and that is what we are trying to deal with. The proposed new fees are still in the competitive range for the surrounding cities and we will be preparing a comprehensive study. The city will make no progress if we do not increase the fees. He stated it is time to deal with this matter. The fee increases are warranted and the time of collection seems to be the issue. When is it more important to collect the fees; at recordation of the map or at issuance of the building permits? This has an impact on the development community but it also impacts the 66,000 people in the city. Note discussion of the map recordation.
Well no map was recorded ever for Area 2 from 2005-2008.

Councilmember Wilson commented if the city does not move in a direction such as being recommended by Staff, not only will the taxpayer pay the burden of facing the infra structure, but the taxpayer will also bear the burden of the shortfall of the lack of revenues to build out new infrastructure. He stated it is extremely important to recognize that fact. Wilson was reprimanded for socializing with the builders outside of the formal council meetings.
So steal it from the Area 1 future homeowners they will never ever understand what happened.

Councilmember Ramos Watson commented on the possibility of phasing in the new fees as they relate to development projects underway as we are proposing implementing this fee tomorrow. Now understand a 4/5 vote passes the ORD. So there needs to be some adverse
discussions. The 4 votes were clearly known.

Mayor Fesmire declared the public hearing opened at 7:06 p.m. and asked for comments from the public for or against this proposal. John Gentry commented we have a problem with parks in our city and the city wants to tax builders/developers to pay for fire and police services and mostly fire services. The city owns all of its fire equipment and still contracts the services for $4 million per year. In the formation of the community facilities districts, he stated those homeowners will pay for the needed fire and police facilities and indicated it is over $400 per assessment. Robert Williamson commented after reading through the study and the government code some of the items pointed out in the draft ordinance are at best inappropriate and does not agree with some of the calculations. He commented within 60-90 days he would be prepared to make comprehensive suggestions to the City. Alfredo Meza commented we are talking about streets in the downtown area and questioned isn't the money supposed to be available through the Water Authority for this purpose through the bond issue? He questioned why the streets at Miles Avenue Park have been closed now for two years without any progress? He asked where is the bond money raised through the bond issue of the IWA? He asked about the soccer park and why it hasn't been completed?

City of Indio City Council Minutes May 4, 2005 continued

Rudy Herrera, representing Family Development, stated as a local developer in Indio, they have always been able to work with the city. The fees due at the time of recordation of the map will make it very challenging for a developer and added there needs to be some sort of compromise. He does not feel the development community has a problem with the increase in fees, but rather with the time of collection of the fees. Ed Kibbey, representing the Building Industry Association, submitted a letter dated May 4, during public testimony and highlighted some of his comments to include Storm drain fees; road, bridges and thoroughfares fees; traffic signal fee; park acquisition and development fee; public buildings, police and fire facilities and water capital impact fees. He commented there is no proposed construction schedule or plan and there is no expenditure to reimburse. There is no reference to monies already collected and in the bank for projects listed. He also commented on the ordinance and findings F, L, M and P and the impact fees. He commented the study is a reasonable study but it is three years old and these fees are not ready to be adopted. Alan Levine asked if the park development fees are per acre or per unit? Mr. Ireland replied they are per unit. Mr. Levine stated that the numbers in the study are probably not out of line, however, he requested the City Council address the time of payment of fees. Roger Watson, developer of Talavera, stated his comments are along the line of those of Councilmember Ramos Watson and requests the Council consider exempting existing approved tentative maps to allow people who are already here working, some help. He added this is going to be a major hit for developers and he currently has pulled permits for six model homes. There being no further comments from the public, Mayor Fesmire declared the public hearing closed at 7:33 p.m.
So have Area 1 pay back those poor City charges of the past.

Read this one All Facts that are part of due process.

Mr. Southard commented the development community has saved millions of dollars by having the old fees. Those that have not built their home will be rewarded with higher home prices as they continue to go up in this area. It is clear our fees are competitive and we are asking to be as competitive as the surrounding cities. In the final analysis we need the development community. He recommended the City Council adopt the fees as outlined by Staff. The question is, are the fees due at recording or at issuance of the building permit. There are some outlined areas and the fact we are coming back in 60-90 days, he suggested leaving the fees due at issuance of the building permit. This would be an urgency ordinance which would go into effect today and we will have the readings of the regular ordinance as we go forward. He stated we are in a crisis of infrastructure and the Council needs to move forward on this. Councilmember Wilson stated he supports the City Manager's recommendation to move forward to take care of the infrastructure. However, the water fees need to be collected at recordation of the map.
True reason. Water fees. Goes with the CFD 2004-3 stealing.

City oflndio City Council Minutes May 4, 2005 continued

No put it on Area 1 we don't know them.

Councilmember Gilbert stated he agrees with moving forward with Staffs recommendation. He stated we cannot place all of the burden on the citizens that have been here for so long. He agrees the water issue is a crisis and needs to be done as well. He is glad there is a compromise but the water fees need to be initiated at the time the map is recorded. Councilmember Godfrey agreed that the water fees be collected at recordation of the map and all other fees at the issuance of the building permit.

WATER AGAIN.

Emergency Councilmember Ramos Watson commented there was a lot of information forwarded to for Area 1, Council that she has not had time to fully digest. She does not feel it is a question of but not for the amount of the fee, rather the concern is with implementation of a possible phasing in Commercial. program. She questioned why commercial fees are being excluded at this time. She How is that requested Staff consider the input during public comment and Council continue this an emergency.

matter to the next meeting.

Mayor Femsire asked if the fees were collected at recordation of the map, would that be a problem for funding of some of the smaller projects? Mr. Southard replied that for some, clearly it would be. Paul Ireland, Interim Community Development/Building & Safety Services Director, You can't use poor stated that for each month the city delays the increase in fees, the city loses $1.5 money million. He commented the commercial side is paying their fee and will go into the other management types of land uses with a commercial cost study. and potential lost money as an emergency After discussion, it was moved by Councilmember Wilson, seconded by Councilmember Godfrey and carried to ADOPT the Capital Impact Fee Study with the updated materials, by the following vote: AYES: Gilbert, Godfrey, Wilson, Fesmire NOES: Ramos Watson After discussion, it was moved by Councilmember Wilson, seconded by Councilmember Godfrey and carried to AUTHORIZE an increase in capital impact fees as outlined and that the collection of all fees will be at the time of issuance of the building permit EXCEPT for the water fees and they will be collected at the recordation of the map and ADOPT Urgency Ordinance No. 1422, by title only, by the following vote, to read as follows: AYES: Gilbert, Godfrey, Wilson, Fesmire NOES: Ramos Watson
