CM2018-017 <br />DATE: March 21, 2018 <br />MEMORANDUM <br />TO: Honorable Mayor and City Cou cil <br />FROM: Konradt Bartlam, City Man er <br />RE: PLANNING COMMISSION AC ON REGARDING AGENDA ITEM 6A — <br />ANNUAL REPORT ON GENERAL PLAN IMPLEMENTATION FOR <br />CALENDAR YEAR 2017 <br />At their meeting on March 20, 2018, staff presented the Planning Commission <br />(Commission) with a report pertaining to the implementation of the City's adopted <br />General Plan. As mandated by Government Code Section 65400(x)(2), staff is required <br />to report annually on the status of each element within the adopted General Plan. Staff <br />presented a brief presentation highlighting notable information in the report regarding <br />various accomplishments and projects, residential building permits issued, the amount of <br />cases processed by Code Enforcement, population and housing statistics update, and <br />Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs. <br />The Commission inquired as to how the City ensures when organizations are awarded <br />funds through the CDBG program that those funds are applied to the Chino Hills <br />residents. Staff briefly described the application and reporting process along with the <br />competitive presentations to the City Council by the organizations. <br />The Commission also expressed disappointment that more residents didn't participate in <br />the Home Improvement Grant program. They agreed that because this is a Federal <br />program the process could be quite onerous in relation to the amount of funding allotted <br />per each applicant. <br />By unanimous vote, 5-0, the Commission recommended approval of the 2017 Annual <br />Report on General Plan Implementation. The Annual Report on General Plan <br />Implementation for Calendar Year 2017 will be provided to the City Council on April 24, <br />2018. <br />KB:JL:YB:ssr <br />
