Document Description
The proposed project is a comprehensive update of the Lake Oroville Area Public Utility District Sphere of Influence. LOAPUD proposes an update to their existing SOI to add 1,956 parcels totaling approximately 10,643 acres, which represents a doubling of the LOAPUD's current SOI. The parcels proposed to be added to the SOI are located in five separate geographical areas. The SOI additional areas are generally to the west, south, and east of the current LOAPUD SOI and include the proposed Rio D' Oro Specific Plan area along SR 70 south of Oroville, the Power House Hill Road/Lone Tree Road area, the future South Ophir Specific Plan area, the unincorporated community of Palermo and surrounding area, the Miners Ranch Road area, and the Stringtown Specific Plan area.
