HEARING INFORMATION:

Date:               April 7, 2021

Time:               OTI9:00 a.m.

Location:         County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, Room 310,

San Diego, California 92101 – No in-person Attendance Allowed –Teleconference Only

Those wishing to participate in the meeting and/or comment should visit https://www.sandiegocounty.gov/content/sdc/cob/bosa.html for information on how to do so during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

APPLICANT:  County of San Diego

PROJECT/CASE NUMBERS: Housing Element PDS2021-GPA-21-001, Safety Element PDS2019-GPA-19-001, and Environmental Justice Element PDS2017-GPA-17-004.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The County of San Diego (County) is conducting an update to its General Plan. The revisions to the General Plan include the updates to the Safety and Housing Elements, and the development of a new Environmental Justice Element. This hearing is to consider additional revisions to the Housing Element draft site criteria and provide further direction before submitting the proposed update to the Planning Commission for a recommendation. The project consists of the following:

Housing Element Update : The County is updating the Housing Element for the 2021-2029 planning period (6th Housing Element Cycle), as required by state law. California Government Code (65580 - 65589.11) requires that the County update the Housing Element every eight years. These frequent updates are required because housing is critical to ensure economic prosperity and quality of life in our region. The 2021-2029 Housing Element will include housing-related goals, policies, and programs to address the existing and projected future housing needs of the unincorporated County.

Safety Element Update : In accordance with State law (Government Code Section 65302), the County has prepared an update to its Safety Element. The proposed Safety Element Update organizes safety goals and policies into eight sections: (1) Hazards Mitigation Planning, Disaster Preparedness, and Emergency Response; (2) Wildfires; (3) Geological and Seismic Hazards; (4) Flood Hazards; (5) Climate Change; (6) Hazardous Materials; (7) Law Enforcement; and (8) Airport Hazards.

Environmental Justice Element : The County is developing a new Environmental Justice Element to be part of the County’s General Plan and reflect the County's efforts in addressing Environmental Justice. The State of California defines Environmental Justice as “the fair treatment of people of all races, cultures, and incomes with respect to the development, adoption, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies” (California Government Code §65040.12.e).

In 2016, the State of California passed Senate Bill 1000 (SB 1000) requiring cities and counties to address Environmental Justice in their general plans. The County has elected to prepare a separate Element rather than integrating Environmental Justice policies among existing General Plan elements. As provided by State Government Code 65302(h), the Environmental Justice Element has the same weight as the mandatory elements of the General Plan and is internally consistent with the other elements. The purpose of the Environmental Justice Element is to address public health risks and environmental justice concerns of those living in disadvantaged communities as defined in Gov. Code, § 65302, subd. (h)(4)(A), many of which are the result of geographic or procedural inequities.

LOCATION: The project is located within the unincorporated areas of the County of San Diego within the First, Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Supervisorial Districts.

ENVIRONMENTAL STATUS: CEQA Section 15164 allows an addendum to a previously certified or adopted environmental document to be prepared when only minor technical changes or changes that would not result in new significant impacts are proposed in a project. The Program Environmental Impact Report GPU EIR) for the County of San Diego General Plan Update (Environmental Review Number 02-ZA-001; Sch. 2002111067) is proposed to be amended by the 15164 letter for the 2021 Safety Element Update (PDS2019-GPA-19-001), Environmental Justice Element (PDS2017-GPA-17-004), and Housing Element Update (PDS2021-GPA-21-001).

ASSISTANCE FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES: Agendas and records are available in alternative formats upon request. Contact the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors office at 619-531-5434 with questions or to request a disability-related accommodation. Individuals requiring sign language interpreters should contact the Countywide ADA Title II Coordinator at (619) 531-4908. To the extent reasonably possible, requests for accommodation or assistance should be submitted at least 72 hours in advance of the meeting so that arrangements may be made. An area in the front of the hearing chambers may be designated for individuals requiring the use of wheelchair or other accessible devices.

NOTE:   If you challenge the action which may be taken on this proposal in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the above public hearing, or in written correspondence delivered to the Hearing Body at or before the hearing. Rules of the Hearing Body may limit or impose requirements upon the submittal of such written correspondence.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

(Including a Summary of Proposed Alternative Ordinances)

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on April 7, 2021 and May 5, 2021 the Board of Supervisors will introduce and consider for adoption an ordinance to adjust Department of Environmental Health and Quality fees and other cost recovery authorities, for County fiscal year 2021-22, to apply until further amended. The Board will also consider, and may take initial action on one of three options for administering the Safe Drinking Water Act in San Diego County on behalf of the State through a delegation agreement to act as the Local Primacy Agency operating the Small Drinking Water Systems Program. Board action could adopt full cost recovery fees to fund program costs, charge the fees established in State law (California Code of Regulations Section 64305) and appropriate General Purpose Revenue to fund program costs, or transfer this program back to the State.  A summary is provided below. 

HEARING INFORMATION :

Date:               April 7, 2021

Time:              9:00 a.m.

Location:         County Administration Center, Room 310

1600 Pacific Highway

San Diego, CA 92101

 

Date:               May 5, 2021

Time:              9:00 a.m.

Location:         County Administration Center, Room 310

1600 Pacific Highway,

San Diego, CA 92101

SUMMARY OF ORDINANCES :    

The ordinance selected by the Board amending the San Diego County Regulatory Code would adjust DEHQ regulatory program permit fees and other fees to incorporate recent and anticipated changes in program costs, including increased labor costs.

If the Board decides to retain the Small Drinking Water Systems Program and adopt full cost recovery fees (“Option 1”), an ordinance entitled “ORDINANCE AMENDING THE SAN DIEGO COUNTY CODE OF REGULATORY ORDINANCES TO ADJUST DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH AND QUALITY REGULATORY PROGRAM FEES AND ASSOCIATED ORDINANCE REVISIONS” would establish those fees.

If the Board decides to retain the Small Drinking Water Systems Program and charge the fees established in State law and appropriate General Purpose Revenue to fund program costs (“Option 2”), an ordinance also entitled “ORDINANCE AMENDING THE SAN DIEGO COUNTY CODE OF REGULATORY ORDINANCES TO ADJUST DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH AND QUALITY REGULATORY PROGRAM FEES AND ASSOCIATED ORDINANCE REVISIONS” (but with different provisions than under Option 1) would repeal the provisions of the County Code that would no longer be relevant, including certain fees established in Section 65.107(i), and would incorporate by reference the fees found in California Code of Regulations Section 64305.

If the Board decides to return the Small Drinking Water Systems Program to the State (“Option 3”), an ordinance also entitled “ORDINANCE AMENDING THE SAN DIEGO COUNTY CODE OF REGULATORY ORDINANCES TO ADJUST DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH AND QUALITY REGULATORY PROGRAM FEES AND ASSOCIATED ORDINANCE REVISIONS” would leave fees for the small water system program unchanged but would amend other fees.  In addition a Resolution would be adopted authorizing the Chief Administrative Officer to work with the State to return the small drinking water systems program to the State on a phased basis, as expeditiously as possible consistent with maintaining effective oversight of small water systems in this county, with a goal of full transition within FY 2021-22. After the completion of that transition an additional ordinance would be brought to the Board to repeal provisions of the County Code that would no longer be relevant. 

 

ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW:  

Staff are recommending that the Board of Supervisors find that the proposed ordinances are exempt from review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to Section 21080(b)(8) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and 15273(a) of the CEQA Guidelines, because these modifications to fees and charges are necessary to meet operating expenses.

GENERAL INFORMATION :

Members of the public are invited to provide comment before or during the public hearing which is received by the Board of Supervisors on or before Wednesday, April 7, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 State of Emergency and Governor Gavin Newsom’s stay home order, Executive Order N-33-20, in person participation at Board of Supervisors meetings may not be allowed.

NOTICE OF HEARING ON PROPOSED ORDINANCE

(Including Summary of Ordinance)

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Board of Supervisors of the County of San Diego will conduct a public hearing on a proposed ordinance, as follows:

AN ORDINANCE AMENDING SECTIONS 68.501 THROUGH 68.581 OF THE SAN DIEGO COUNTY CODE RELATING TO MANAGEMENT OF SOLID WASTE, RECYCLABLE MATERIALS AND ORGANIC WASTE, AND APPROVE REPLACEMENT OF THE NON-EXCLUSIVE SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT (SWMA) WITH THE NON-EXCLUSIVE FRANCHISE AGREEMENT (NEFA)

 

HEARING INFORMATION:

Date:                           April 7, 2021

Time:                           9:00 a.m.

Location:                    County Administration Center

                                  1600 Pacific Highway Room 310

                                   San Diego, CA 92101

Those wishing to participate in and/or comment on the proposed ordinance amendment and replacement of the Solid Waste Management Agreement with the Non-Exclusive Franchise Agreement should visit https://www.sandiegocounty.gov/content/sdc/cob/bosa.html for information on how to do so during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

SUMMARY OF ORDINANCE :

 

The proposed ordinance amends Sections 68.501 through 68.581 of the County Code of Regulatory Ordinances. The proposed amendment is intended to increase the diversion of recyclable and organic materials from landfill disposal, extend the useful life of local landfills, and help ensure the County meets the state recycling requirements. To comply with SB 1383, the proposed amendment would require residents and businesses to separate and recycle organic materials, add food scraps to the list of organic materials required to be recycled, and set minimum recycling service levels for multi-family complexes and commercial businesses. Commercial edible food generators will be required to donate surplus edible food to food recovery organizations, and these organizations would be required to report tonnages rescued to the County annually. Additionally, the proposed amendment outlines state-mandated enforcement procedures for non-compliant generators but allows for certain exemptions in sparsely-populated areas, as well as waivers for de minimis generation, space constraints, and self-hauling. 

The Non-Exclusive Franchise Agreement (NEFA) is proposed to take the place of the County’s current Solid Waste Management Agreement (SWMA). The NEFA requires haulers to implement programs aimed at increasing diversion, including food scrap collection and enhanced education, technical assistance and reporting. Failure to fully implement required programs, or if after being placed on a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) for not meeting diversion goals, failure to fully implement CAP required programs, could result in enforcement action. Additionally, the NEFA allows Construction & Demolition (C&D) haulers to obtain a franchise to haul C&D debris and allows Certified Recyclable Material Collectors (CRMC) to haul limited amounts of recyclable materials. Both CRMC and C&D franchise haulers would be required to report tonnages to the County, enabling greater oversight over the entire solid waste system. 

ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW :

It is recommended that the adoption of this ordinance be determined to not be subject to CEQA review under Section 15061(b)(3) of the State CEQA Guidelines, that it can be seen with certainty there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant adverse effect on the environment.

GENERAL INFORMATION : A copy of the full text of the Ordinance is posted at the office of the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, Lower Level Bayside Room of the County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway. The material will be available for public review ten days prior to the public hearing at said office of the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors. For additional information regarding this proposal, contact Eric Wolff at (858) 694-2468.

This public hearing is accessible to individuals with disabilities.  If interpreter services for the hearing impaired are needed, please call the hearing secretary at (619) 531-5600 or California Relay Service, if notifying by TDD, no later than seven (7) days prior to the scheduled hearing.

NOTE:  If you challenge the Board's action in court, you may be limited to raising those issues you or someone else raises at the above public hearing, or in written correspondence delivered to the Hearing Board at or before the hearing. Rules of the Hearing Body may limit or impose requirements upon the submittal of such written correspondence.
