Master Development Update –

  • Haun Creek CLOMR in with FEMA for 2nd plan check. We spoke to the FEMA contractor on 12/6.  He indicated that he has completed his review and does not have any further comments on the hydraulic model.  He indicated that it now goes back to FEMA and that we should have the CLOMR letter within 2 to 4 weeks.
  • Working on school alternatives analysis:
    • Build K-8 school within our spending cap. District funds any shortfalls.
    • Build K-5 school within our spending cap. District will likely have excess funds available for other uses.
    • No school within community. Upgrade existing schools using the funds from our spending obligations.
  • Working with Tony and Erren on Guest Builder offering package. Targeting distribution in early January 2018.
  • Working on updated cash flow and business plan for Executive Committee approval on 12/18.
  • OCIP GL policy addendum and manual approved. Working on enrollment of vendors.
  • We are setting up a bi-weekly meeting with the Ventura County Watershed Protection District on the following issues:
    • Amending the City’s Harvest CFD No 1 to satisfy the LAFCO condition for the project to pay for a portion of maintenance costs of Santa Paula and Haun Creeks. The goal is to amend the CFD by May 2018.
    • Processing the watercourse permit, and Army Corps 408 permit application, for construction of the bridge. We are setting up a meeting with Army Corps within the next week or two to discuss the hydraulic modeling requirements.
    • Processing a LOMR for Santa Paula Creek to remove a portion of the project and City from the A99 flood zone. The City and County need to reach an agreement on the hydraulic model assumptions, before we can request the LLPT meeting with FEMA and Army Corps.  We are trying to broker an agreement between the agencies.
  • We continue to work with the lobbyist to bring about resolution of dispute between NMFS and Army Corps. We have set up a meeting with Ken Calvert’s office on Monday 12/11.
