As mandated by Government Code Section 65400(x)(2), staff is required to report annually on the status of each element within the adopted General Plan. Staff presented a brief presentation highlighting notable information in the report regarding various accomplishments and projects, residential building permits issued, the amount of cases processed by Code Enforcement, population and housing statistics update, and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs. The Commission inquired as to how the City ensures when organizations are awarded funds through the CDBG program that those funds are applied to the Chino Hills residents. Staff briefly described the application and reporting process along with the competitive presentations to the City Council by the organizations. The Commission also expressed disappointment that more residents didn't participate in the Home Improvement Grant program. They agreed that because this is a Federal program the process could be quite onerous in relation to the amount of funding allotted per each applicant. By unanimous vote, 5-0, the Commission recommended approval of the 2017 Annual Report on General Plan Implementation. The Annual Report on General Plan Implementation for Calendar Year 2017 will be provided to the City Council on April 24, 2018. KB:JL:YB:ssr
