10:00 a.m. (or as soon thereafter as

possible) in the

Board of Supervisors Chambers

Plumas County Courthouse-

520 Main Street

Quincy, Calif.

Notice is hereby given that the Plumas Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) will hold public hearing to consider the following item:

Annexation to American Valley Community Services District and Quincy Fire Protection District for the purposes of a new CHP facility.

This proposal is for the American Valley Community Services District and the Quincy Fire Protection District to annex 5 acres more or less of territory that lies along Lee Road in Quincy, CA and is within each of the agency’s Sphere of Influence. The application was filed by the property owner – the State of California. The proposal, if approved, would result in the addition of 5-acres more or less to the American Valley Community Services District boundaries and the Quincy Fire Protection District boundaries.

The Commission will consider oral and written testimony by any interested person or affected agency as well as the report of the Executive Officer.  At the hearing, the Commission may approve or disapprove a proposal with or without amendment, wholly, partially, or conditionally, may include or exclude territory in a change of organization or may continue its consideration with or without amendment, as a whole, in part, or upon such conditions as the Commission may determine. The extension or continuation of any previously authorized charge, fee, assessment, or tax by a local agency or a successor local agency may be applied in the affected territory. Pursuant to Government Code Section 56662, the Commission intends to

wave the protest proceeding if the Commission approves the annexation as the property is uninhabited, there is 100 percent landowner consent and there is no written opposition by the subject agencies.  The Commission intends to affirm the Lead Agency’s CEQA findings as contained in the applicant’s Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration. This notice complies with Section 15182 of the CEQA Guidelines.

Persons may attend and be heard at the time and place of the hearing. If you challenge the action of the Commission on any of the above stated items in court, it may be limited to only those issues raised at the public hearing described in this notice, or in written correspondence delivered to the Plumas Local Agency Formation Commission at, or prior to, the public hearing.

The Executive Officer’s report will be available for review at the Plumas County Planning Department located at 555 Main St. Quincy, California, and as practicable, the LAFCO website www.plumaslafco.org  five (5) days prior to the hearing.
