Document Description
The proposed project consists of the incorporation of approximately 9.87 square miles (6,295 acres) as a new municipal government, to be called the Town of Alamo. The Town of Alamo initially would be incorporated as a General Law city under the Constitution of the State of California. The proposed form of the new town would be the "Council/Manager" form common to small and mid-size towns throughout the State. Under the Council/Manager, a five-person town council, elected at large, would retain a City Manager who would be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the town with an appointed City Clerk. The new Town Council would be obligated by Government Code §57376(a) to adopt all County Ordinances for a period of 120 days or until the new city adopts its own ordinances, whichever comes first. No changes in existing land use designations, zoning designations, policies, guidelines, or development regulations are proposed as part of the incorporation. Initially, the County or other entities may be contracted to provide government services. Over time, these services may be provided directly by the Town. A variety of services, including structural fire protection, parks and recreation, public utilities, water and wastewater, solid waste, electricity, gas, cable television, public transportation, flood control, library, cemetery, public health, public education and environmental health would continue to be provided by existing service providers.
