In general, there is a perception that the City has not equitably funded improvements for the Los Serranos Area compared to other areas of the City. We recognize that you may also receive such concerns. In order to assist you in your communication on this matter, we have prepared the attached overview for your information. Should you have any questions or comments, please contact Nadeem Majaj, Public Works Director, at 364-2801, or me. Thank you. KB:NM:ssr Attachments The Los Serranos Infrastructure — An Overview November 2016 Los Serranos is one of the two oldest communities in the City of Chino Hills (City). The other is the Sleepy Hollow Community. Residential construction in Los Serranos started in the 1920's and the area existed as unincorporated until the formation of the City of Chino Hills in 1991. Prior to incorporation, limited residential construction occurred but could not reasonably be conditioned to construct or improve the infrastructure. It may also have been the desire of the community to maintain the rural feel of the area. Therefore, most of the streets remained as two-way narrow streets without sidewalks,drainage improvements, lighting or landscapes. On the other hand,the newer developments in the remainder of the City were conditioned to not only construct the infrastructure but to also establish funding districts for their operation and maintenance. It is important to note that the costs for constructing the infrastructure were passed onto the buyers, while the cost of maintenance was to be annually assessed on the properties. In general,the infrastructure includes roadway paving, curb, gutter, sidewalks,streetlights, parkways & landscaping,water systems,sewer systems,storm drains,etc. Since the mid-1990's,the community started to show interest in infrastructure improvements. However, Los Serranos was already built-out and no opportunities existed for securing funding from large developers. Regardless,the City responded to the desire of the community and embarked on a mission to improve Los Serranos in the early 2000's. In order to better understand the deficiencies, in 2003 the City evaluated the infrastructural conditions and identified needed drainage,streets and lighting improvements. The improvements were proposed to be phased over a multi-year program but would - primarily be dependent upon securing external funding from State and Federal governments. Such funding typically required a local match and the City was willing to absorb these costs through its General Fund. The General Fund is a limited fund,which allows for expenditures on safety(i.e. law enforcement), recreation and other basic municipal needs. Over the past ten years,the City was successful in securing a notable amount of external funding for drainage,streets,sidewalks and other improvements for Los Serranos. Over$8.5 million was received through the Safe Routes to School program, Measure I (sales tax) and Community Development Block Grant program (CDBG). For its local share,the City provided over$4.5 million from its General fund as its required local match. In total,over$10.3 million in improvements have been completed to date and two more projects will be constructed over the next six months for approximately$2.6 million. Finally, a community park is currently in design and is expected to cost approximately$3.65 million and be constructed within one year. In total, approximately$16.5 million have been dedicated to the Los Serranos infrastructure over the past decade. Attached is a table which summarizes these improvements and their costs. While the City desires to provide an equitable amount of improved infrastructure, certain areas such as Los Serranos have not been able to participate in the cost of the improvements. This is not due to any fault of the community. Rather, it is due to the era in which they were built-out and to not having a mechanism for the residents to participate in the cost of the infrastructure and its upkeep,as is the case in other parts of the City.The City has been and remains committed to continue to seek every opportunity to secure additional external funding, provide the necessary local funding match and construct the needed improvements.
