RE: Community Services District Improvement Area Two
Mr. Williams:
As you are aware, on August 2, 2006 the City Council approved a Resolution
approving a Deposit and Reimbursement Agreement necessary to initiate
Improvement Area Two Community Facilities District (CFD) Financing.
Earlier today, you asked for clarifying language to specific wording contained in
paragraph two of the analysis section reading, "staff is also negotiating with the
Master developer for a contribution to the cost of certain water storage facilities
needed to serve the Terra Lago development." This issue has been satisfied
with the approval of the Resolution of Intention on September 20, 2006
(attached). Specifically, the Resolution of Intention staff report contains language
in paragraph two of the analysis section outlining discretional monies in the
amount of $1,750,000 which the City intends to allocate to new water storage
facilities within the Terra Lago development.  It is my understanding our
negotiations are complete and both parties are satisfied.
Should you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to
call me directly at (76 342-6560.

INDIO CITY COUNCIL
AGENDA REPORT
TO:  Glenn D. Southard, City Manager
FROM:  Jim L. Smith, Director of Engineering/Public Works
DATE:  September 20, 2006
SUBJECT: Resolution of Intention to Incur Bonded Indebtedness in the
Amount Not to Exceed S33,500,000 within Improvement Area No.
2 of the City of Indio Community Facilities District No. 2004-3
(Terra Lago)
SUMMARY
Community Facilities District No. 2004-3 (Terra Lago) was formed in July 2005.
CFD No. 2004-3 (Terra Lago) contains two improvement areas corresponding to
the two phases of development of homes contemplated by the Suncal Companies,
the Master Developer. A total of 1,484 homes are expected to be built, 635
homes in Phase 1 and 849 homes in Phase 2.
As part of the foiniation process, the City Council approved a Resolution of
Intention to Incur Bonded Indebtedness in the Amount Not to Exceed
$30,000,000 and $30,000,000 within Improvement Area No. 1 and Improvement
Area No. 2, respectively, for a maximum bonded indebtedness limit of
S60,000,000 for Community Facilities District No. 2004-3 (Terra Lago).
In September 2005, the District issued Special Tax Bonds for Improvement Area
No. 1 in the amount of $26,330,000. At that time, it was expected that the
District would issue a second series of bonds in 2006 to finance certain public
facilities related to Improvement Area No. 2. The bonds for Improvement Area
No. 2, when issued, will be secured by Special Taxes levied on taxable parcels
within Improvement Area No. 2.
For City Council Agenda
ITEM NO. 7
ui-u NO. zUU4-3 (I erra Lam
September 20, 2006
PAGE 2
At this time, in order to capitalize on the current additional bonding capacity
expected to be generated by the Phase 2 development, the Master Developer is
requesting that the amount of bonded indebtedness authorized to be incurred
within Improvement Area No. 2 be increased from $30,000,000 to $33,500,000.
In order to offset the increase in bonded indebtedness authorized for
Improvement Area No. 2, staff is recommending that the authorized bonded
indebtedness limit for Improvement Area No. 1 be reduced to $26,500,000,
limiting the total authorized bonding capacity for the overall CFD to the original
$60 million approved in 2005.
The additional capacity realized from the proposed increase in bonded
indebtedness for Improvement Area No. 2 will be divided equally between the
Master Developer and the City. The Master Developer will use the additional
proceeds to fund infrastructure costs of the development, while the City may use
the proceeds for its own public facilities.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Staff recommends adopting the Resolution of Intention to Incur Bonded
Indebtedness in the Amount Not to Exceed $33,500,000 within Improvement
Area No. 2 of the City of Indio Community Facilities District No. 2004-3 (Terra
Lago) and setting November 1, 2006 as the date for the public hearing and special
election by property owners.
ANALYSIS
The Terra Lago development consists of two improvement areas corresponding
with the two development stages of the project: Improvement Area No. 1 is
expected to contain 635 homes and Improvement Area No. 2 is expected to
contain 849 homes. Homesites within Improvement Area No. 1 have been sold to
merchant builders and homes are under construction. The Master Developer is
currently negotiating the sale of property within Improvement Area No. 2 with
merchant builders. Construction of models and the first phase of production
homes in Improvement Area No. 2 is expected to commence in early 2007.
In connection with Improvement Area No. 2, special tax bonds are expected to be
issued in December 2006. In addition to $1,000,000 funded with special tax
bonds issued for Improvement Area No. 1, an additional $3,000,000 toward the
Ul-U NO. ZUU4-3 (I errs Lago)
September 20, 2006
PAGE 3
cost of a fire station will be funded when the special tax bonds are issued for
Improvement Area No. 2. Approximately 53,364,000 in City development impact
fees for parks and streets will also be funded. The City's share of the additional
bonding capacity of $1,750,000 can be used at the City's discretion for additional
public facilities.
The issuance of special tax bonds for Improvement Area No. 2 is expected to be
considered by the City Council in November 2006. At this time it is requested
that the amount of bonded indebtedness authorized to be incurred within
Improvement Area No. 2 be increased from S30,000,000 to S33,500,000. In order
to offset the increase in bonded indebtedness authorized for Improvement Area
No. 2 and limit the bonded indebtedness for the Community Facilities District to
$60,000,000 in total, the authorized bonded indebtedness limit for Improvement
Area No. 1 would be reduced to $26,500,000.
The additional capacity realized from the proposed increase in bonded
indebtedness for Improvement Area No. 2 will be divided equally between the
Master Developer and the City. The Master Developer will use the additional
proceeds to fund infrastructure costs of the development, while the City will use
the proceeds for its own public facilities.
Prior to the issuance of the Improvement Area No. 2 Bonds, a determination will
be made that the homes to be built within the CFD can support the estimated
special taxes in the amount necessary to repay this second series of bonds and that
such special tax does not cause the total effective tax rate (including ad valorem
taxes, the City's CFD payment for public safety and all other special assessments)
to exceed the maximum allowable rate of 2% of the estimated purchase price of
homes in the CFD. It is estimated that the average special tax per house will be
$2,500 for interior homes and $4,100 for view lot homes.
FINANCIAL REVIEW
The property owner posted a deposit in order to cover City costs incurred in
connection with these change proceedings and for costs relating to the appraisal
of property within Improvement Area No. 2. Approval of this resolution does not
in any way commit the City to any financial contribution or liability to repay any
bonded indebtedness issued by the CFD. The City's cost to administer the CFD
annually will be reimbursed through annual special taxes charged to property
owners.
CFD No. 2004-3 (Terra Lago)
September 20, 2006
PAGE 4
The special tax bonds will fund approximately $3,364,000 of development impact
fees of the City, $3,000,000 toward the cost of a fire station, and another
$1,750,000 of other City public facilities, as well as sewer fees of Valley Sanitary
District, school fees and certain of the Master Developer's infrastructure costs.
LEGAL REVIEW
The Mello-Roos Community Facilities Act of 1982 (the "Act") provides clear
authority, in section 53318(c), for the initiation of the establishment of
community facilities districts or changes thereto upon receipt by the City of a
petition requesting the proceedings by the owners of not less than 10% of the area
of land within the district. The City has received the signed petition from Land
Ventures, LLC, the property owner of land within Improvement Area No. 2.
The Act provides that, if there are less than 12 registered voters currently within
the district, the vote to increase the bonded debt limit shall be by the landowners
within such district and each landowner shall have one vote for each acre or
portion of an acre of land owned within the district.
This item has been reviewed by Don Hunt of Fulbright & Jaworski, L.L.P, the
City's bond counsel.
