Category:Action/Info ItemMeeting Workflows:Board Admin Committee Workflow


On behalf of the property owner W.M. Lyles Company, Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) will submit a request to The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) for consent of the concurrent annexation of the 5.38 net acres of land located along Madison Avenue, southeast of Elm Street in the City of Murrieta, County of Riverside, as shown on the map attached as Exhibit C.  The current zoning for the subject parcel of land is commercial.


EMWD will act as the lead agency in requesting the Riverside Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) to initiate and conduct a “reorganization proceeding”, pursuant to the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000 (Section 56000 et seq. of the Government Code) which would, upon completion, result in the subject parcel of land concurrently annexed within MWD and EMWD service area.  A proposed Resolution making such request of LAFCO is attached as Exhibit A.


In accordance with LAFCO requirements, such a request for a "reorganization proceeding" must include a Resolution of the Board that determines the amount, if any, of ad valorem property tax revenue to be exchanged between the County of Riverside and EMWD as a result of the reorganization.  It has been determined that there will be no exchange or transfer of ad valorem property tax revenue within the subject territory.  The proposed Resolution making such determination for the County of Riverside is also found in the attached Exhibit A.


Concurrently, EMWD is requesting MWD’s formal consent and terms and conditions upon which said territory may be annexed within MWD’s service area.  A proposed Resolution making such request of MWD is attached as Exhibit B.
