  1. City of Roseville Finance—CFD #5 ‘overlay’ in SPA-3 Date: 1/12/2016 FFNA and Westpark NA Joint Board Meeting Monty Hanks (Roseville Finance Director), Jeannine Thrash, Roseville Administrative Analyst, and Steve Hicks representing the Fiddyment Farm developers, gave a presentation on the proposed Mello Roos assessment CFD #5, which would replace the current Fiddyment Farm CFD #1 in the “SPA-3” parcels of the Fiddyment Farm area. Because SPA-3 added a proposed 1,661 more homes to that area in 2014, it was initially expected that the CFD’s would be reduced for that whole area (more and smaller lots by virtue of increasing the number of homes in the same acreage by over 20%. Instead, the City recalculated the “mass tax” (total tax amount due for the tax parcel area), and determined that the share amount would actually be higher. So this triggered the proposed CFD #5 for all of Phase 2 that has not already begun construction, and all of Phase 3. All those areas previously assessed as CFD #1 will now become assessed at the CFD #5 rate (the prior CFD #1 assessment would be paid off so that only the CFD #5 rate would be imposed. [FYI—you may notice it skipped from the 3 CFD’s we now have to CFD #5—City staff indicated that CFD #4 is actually not a West Roseville specific Plan assessment; it actually belongs to another infill area.] CFD #5 will be on the City Council Agenda for next Wednesday, January 20th for approval. It was mentioned that the current CFD #1 bond ($80,000,000 initially) will be paid off early in this process. The opportunity is provided to refund the bonds in the 10th year 9/1/2016. This would produce a 5-10% savings. Westpark recently went through the same early pay-off process for the bond. Mr. Hanks indicated Westpark residents should be getting reductions from the adjustment last year. there may be a reduction to the CFD #1 assessments because of that. Nothing has been indicated yet about reductions, and apparently Westpark will continue to build out without need of an overlay for increases. Discussions also came up over the $5.000 (increased last July) Public Facilities Fee (PFF) that new home residents continue to be assessed with. The PFF assessment is collected from the developer impact fees paid when permits are pulled, and obviously part of our home costs. This fee is most commonly referred to as the Downtown Roseville Fee because that’s where all the money has been designated to go by City Council decision. Sue Cook mentioned her continued objection to the “fee”—that public facilities should be the responsibility of all residents of the City, and all residents should have the opportunity to vote for them and determine where they should be applied. But if it’s called a “fee”, it’s not a tax and does not require a public vote. Download the presentation here: RCONA meeting 1-12-16.pdf
  2. SPA-3 Approved On April 16, 2014, the Roseville City Council unanimously approved the Specific Plan Amendment 3 (SPA-3) for major changes to the Fiddyment Farm area of the West Roseville Specific Plan (WRSP). Presentations were made by Roseville City Planning representatives Chris Burrows and Ron Miller, and developers’ agents Steve Hicks and John Bayless. Members of the WestPark-Fiddyment Farm Neighborhood Association Sue Hallahan-Cook, Joe Van Zant, and Aaron Kacalek also made statements for the record. In addition, Mayor Rohan referenced numerous letters submitted related to SPA-3, and very politely lead a question and answer period following the presentations and statements but before the final vote. The following is a brief background on SPA-3: 2006--The original WRSP was approved for 8,430 homes: 4,170 in Fiddyment Farm and 4,260 in WestPark. [Amendments submitted on behalf of both Fiddyment Farm and WestPark] 2009—SPA-2 for Fiddyment Farm was approved—basically a numbers game, increasing the density of the six High Density Residential (HDR) facilities to 20 and 25 units per acre (U/A) and reducing outlying parcels to ½ -acre lots to keep the total number of units close to number of units in the original WRSP. 2010—SPA-3 was issued requesting an additional 1,905 units be added to the SPA-3 area (same areas previously reduced by SPA-2) and included the addition of two more HDR facilities (making 9 total). 2013—after ongoing opposition and a subsequent Environmental Impact Report, the developers presented an amended SPA-3 reducing the number of units from 1,905 to 1,661 units. Dec. 2013—Roseville Planning Commission unanimously approved SPA-3 as proposed and moved it on to City Council for final approval. WFFNA opposed SPA-3 based on the large direct impact on the Fiddyment Farm portion of the WRSP, and ultimately on the entire WRSP. The total residential units for the WRSP with the various amendments already granted will now be approximately 10,478 units—over 2,000 homes added from the original plan. The presenters stated their conclusions that the addition of the 1661 units [averages of 4,335 people and 3,322 vehicles] would have no impact or change in overall density. The two added HDR facilities will now bring the total of HDR facilities in Fiddyment Farm to 9—that’s 29% of our residential units in high density facilities. The presenters showed charts representing that as a low figure compared with other areas of the City of Roseville (similar to their 2010 misleading chart which we countered with appropriate computations showing it was actually the highest concentration in the City of Roseville). The developers also stated that the new housing densities would be “in line” with those of other recently approved developments, naming Sierra Vista and Westbrook, both south of Fiddyment Farm and WestPark. After direct questioning from Mayor Rohan, Mr. Burrows stated the intent was always to increase the density of the plan, and said disclosure amendments were issued in 2006 and 2008 and added to the CC&Rs given to homeowners. [After the meeting, we located our copy presented at our home purchase in 2007. There are several references reflecting, “The Community Plan may be modified by Signature and/or the Participating Builders and specifically, that Signature may modify the planned density for the Community as set forth in Section D.5 below.” Section D-5 of our copy indicates, “Signature intends to seek one or more density increases for that portion of the Community that Signature plans to develop (the “Signature Villages”). Although that intent was never mentioned during the entire purchase process, it appears the builders were quite aware of it—the statement was in the hundreds of pages of documents provided at closing. Very little was mentioned as to the Subsequent EIR, other than referencing that it stated, “The proposed project would result in Significant and Unavoidable impacts to transportation and Circulation, Noise and Air Quality, and Public Services—Water Supply.” But what impact does that have when it then recommends the project be passed, “… because of the rest of the projected buildup in the area, SPA-3 will have no additional impact and therefore it should be passed. “ Sue Hallahan-Cook speaking for WFFNA asked that the City of Roseville honor Specific Plan Agreements as it proceeds with future expansion, thus instilling the faith of the persons buying their homes under the plans as represented. She asked for a compromise for SPA-3—that the future build-out be returned to the original build-out density of the West Roseville Specific Plan, but received no response to that suggestion. So after four years of frustration for us all, SPA-3 has been approved and the building will move forward, only a little less than originally proposed, so that’s something positive. The City of Roseville will have the added density and HDR facilities towards meeting its governmental requirements of affordable housing, and we’ll know to read every page of agreements to look for those unmentioned disclosures in the future.
  3. Environmental Determination: The City of Roseville has determined that the project described below could have a significant effect on the environment; accordingly, a Draft Subsequent Environmental Impact Report {DSEIR) has been prepared to analyze potential impacts. The DSEIR was circulated for public review in November and December 2013. Significant new information has been added to the DSEIR. Portions of the DSEIR that have been revised indude Chapter 2 Executive Summary, Chapter 7 Air Quality, and Chapter 11 Cumulative Impacts. These portions are being circulated for public review as the Partial 2"d Recirculation of the DSEIR beginning February 10, 2014 through March 26, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. The DSEIR revisions may be reviewed during normal business hours in the Planning Division located at 311 Vernon Street in Roseville, CA, and online at www.roseville.ca.us {under the Planning Division "Current Projects" heading). Pursuant to CEQA Guidelines § 15088.5{f)(2), the City of Roseville respectfully requests that reviewers limit their comments to the revised chapters induded in the Partial 2nd Recirculation of the DSEIR. There is no need for reviewers to resubmit comments that were submitted on the previously circulated DSEIR. Project Title/Name: WRSP Fiddyment Ranch Phase 3 - General Plan Amendment, Specific Plan Amendment, Rezone, Development Agreement Amendment, Tentative Subdivision Maps - File #2013PL-005 {GPA-000068, SPA-000049, RZ-000063, DA-000053, SUB-000171 & SUB-000179) Project Address/Location: 3000 Hayden Parkway - The project site is located within the West Roseville Specific Plan {WRSP) area, which encompasses approximately ±3,162 acres located in the northwest portion of the City of Roseville, west of Fiddyment Road. The proposed project will affect ±805 acres of the WRSP north of Blue Oaks Boulevard. APNs: 492-010-002, 003, 004, 005, 015, 020, 021, 031, and 033.

  4. Today we sent a letter (you may download a copy below) to Mayor Rohan and City Council as well as Chair Hinkle and Planning Commissioners. In this letter we state the neighborhoods opposition to the huge density changes in Specific Plan Amendment 3 (SPA 3). These density changes would affect all of the West Roseville neighborhoods -- from property values to traffic, to schools, and water. The proposed changes would include adding 1661 additional residence units beyond what was in the original plan. In the letter we state: "The residents of the WestPark and Fiddyment Farm neighborhoods respectfully submit this request for the City Council and Planning Department staff to consider the original intent of the WRSP which established the expectations under which we purchased our homes and signed our assessment agreements. To approve SPA-3 as submitted would represent a gross breach of faith with our residents. " Public meetings to receive comments on the SPA-3 have been scheduled before the Planning Commission on November 14, 2013 and December 12, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers located at the Civic Center, 311 Vernon Street, Roseville CA. WE URGE YOU TO ATTEND AND STATE YOUR OPPOSITION TO THIS AMENDMENT.

  5. "A Notice of Preparation (NOP) is being issued to notify interested parties that an SEIR will be prepared, and to solicit feedback on the scope and content of the analysis in the SEIR." "The proposed SPA 3 project would amend the West Roseville Specific Plan (WRSP) to accommodate 1,661 additional residential units (586 Low Density Residential units, 609 Medium Density Residential Units, and 472 High Density Residential Units) in Fiddyment Ranch Phases 2 and 3. The project would affect approximately 815 acres of land generally north and west of the Blue Oaks Boulevard/Fiddyment Road intersection. The revised land use plan will not change the footprint of the WRSP, but would redistribute certain land uses (LDR, LDR (Pocket Parks), MDR and HDR, CC, P/R, OS, P/Q-P, and Right-of-way) within the project area. We urgent ALL residents to attend and ask their questions about this huge change to the West Roseville Specific Plan. Download the Notice below: Notice of SEIR Scoping Meeting - SPA 3.pdf
  6. On March 10, 2013, at the WestPark-Fiddyment Farm Neighborhood Association (WFFNA) Board Meeting, Steve Hicks and John Bayless, representatives for the Fiddyment Farm developers, gave a very good slide presentation followed by an extensive Q&A period that lasted almost 90 minutes. The slide presentation gave the following updates on development: Fiddyment Farm School (built jointly by WestPark and Fiddyment Farm developers) will open this August. Two more groups of single family homes in the F-15 and F-16 areas have started construction. Lennar has started a group of 86 lots up in the F-14 area. He reviewed the numerous amenities of Fiddyment Farm: Median islands which help slow traffic into the neighborhoods Beautiful tree lined parking strips in front of homes Streets running adjacent to open spaces and parks Pocket parks unique to Fiddyment Farm (8 eventually), and 4 Neighborhood Parks 5 miles of bike trails plus hiking trails through the parks Mr. Hicks indicated the second school of the area opening in August, another 2 elementary schools in the West Roseville Specific Plan as needed. He also indicated our students are currently attending Oakmont High across town, but the high school property was purchased in May 2011. Unfortunately, the opening of the high school has now been postponed until 2018. Mr. Hicks said Fiddyment Farm is in the 9th year of a 20-year build-out schedule. The partial extension of Blue Oaks to Hayden Parkway was advanced from Phase 4 to coincide with the completion of the new Fire Station #9 due to open soon. Then Mr. Hicks got into the details of requested amendments proposed in SPA-3, indicating the proposed number of homes to be modified: Adds 586 LDR (Low density residential) units, less 98 acres (transferred to other uses)—creating new average density of 4.9 units per acre. [Examples of properties—Silver Oaks at 2.4 to Sonata at 4.1 units per acre, and Shadow Creek 4.8 to Bella Terra at 5.5 units per acre.] Adds 609 units of new MDR (mid density residential) at average 10.9 units per acre. [Examples Pleasant Creek at 8.0 to Villemont (near Costco) at 9.5 units per acre.] Adds 472 units of HDR (high density residential) at 25 units per acre (in two additional projects in Phase 3 near F-71 school property. [Examples Vintage Square and Siena Apts. at 22 units per acre.] 3 HDR units off Fiddyment Road in Phase 1 area will maintain build out at 20 units per acre (with City agreement). Total additional housing: said to be 1,661 units in City Summary, however figures add up to 1667. Adds 2 commercial properties at F-6 area and F-81 at Angus Rd. and Fiddyment Road. Mr. Hicks said the added density would bring school population from 3.2 to 4.0 to guarantee the fourth school. A Subsequent EIR is in preparation now and should be available this summer. It will include all new approved developments since the initial 2004 EIR. Following the presentation, Steve Hicks and John Bayless responded to questions and concerns from the audience; examples as follows: A concern was raised about traffic to the new Fiddyment Farm school and when Hayden Parkway would open. Phase 2 and 3 are expected to take 10 more years to build out. Hayden Bridge will not be completed until Phase 3, probably 4 or 5 more years, so traffic will have to route through the local neighborhood streets. But there is a close access to the school now. Why were the two additional HDR facilities added? They were added to accommodate city needs to meet low income housing requirements. At build-out, our HDR level will be 27% of the West Roseville Specific Plan. Other concerns were stated regarding the projected increase of density, including increased crime. The developers indicated that they are building to meet market driven needs. They also said increased density could have benefits of getting our amenities quicker, and guaranteeing the fourth elementary school. Mayor Susan Rohan indicated full consideration would be given to reviewing the SEIR, and urged residents to submit their comments, letters and questions to the City Planning Department. Steve Hicks agreed to come back for another meeting to share thoughts after the Subsequent EIR comes out and he will contact Loren Cook at that time.

  7. For those that were not here 2009 and 2010 here is some background information on West Roseville Specific Plan (WRSP) - Specific Plan Amendment 3 (SPA 3): In November 2009 Signature Properties submitted an application to amend the West Roseville Specific Plan (WRSP) to add 1,905 residential units and 6.2 acres of commercial land within the Fiddyment Ranch portion of the WRSP. On March 3, 2010, Council adopted resolutions approving 1) a Professional Services Agreement for professional environmental consulting services and preparation of a Subsequent EIR (SEIR), and 2) authorizing the City Manager to enter into a Funding Agreement with the land owner (Roseville/Fiddyment Land Venture. LLC) for reimbursement of consultant costs and staff processing of the application. In December 2011, the applicant provided a written request to staff to discontinue processing the application due to financial issues associated with the ownership/partnership for the property/project. The application was ultimately withdrawn in October 2012. The new property ownership group, ATC Realty One, LLC, is now ready to resubmit an application to complete the Specific Plan Amendment, with one modification. The quantity of additional residential units requested will be reduced by 245 units from 1,905 to 1,660. With the exception of this modification, the new project description, acreages, and entitlements will be identical to the project submitted in 2009. The consulting firm of North Fork Associates (NFA) prepared the Subsequent EIR (SEIR) for the original Fiddyment SPA 3 project. As a result of a merger, NFA is now operating as Dudek. Since NFA (now Dudek) prepared the SEIR for the original project, Dudek was selected to prepare a Recirculated SEIR to address the revised project description for proposed Fiddyment SPA 3 project. The funding for the SPA3 SEIR work was approved by the Roseville City Council last night (January 16th, 2013).
