Document Description
Pursuant to the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000 (Government Code section 56000 etseq.), the Board of Directors for the East Quincy Services District and the Quincy Community Services District will adopt substantially similar resolutions of application requesting the local Agency Formation Commission take proceedings for the consolidation of the East Quincy Services District and the Quincy Community Services District ("Consolidation"). The Consolidation would allow for efficiencies and economies of scale by consolidating the two districts that provide the same types of services in close geographic proximity. Moreover, the Consolidation would benefit customers by making available more staff and financial resources and by enhancing and making more efficient the maintenance of facilities and equipment than are currently available to either district separately. Consolidation would make it easier to obtain funding and loans, as many facilitate bond financing. In addition, Consolidation may also reduce costs by allowing certain improvements to be delayed.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 20
Reasons for Exemption
State CEQA Guidelines section 15378(b)(5); organization or administrative activities of governments that will not result in direct or indirect physical changes in the environment. This Project is exempt pursuant to Class 20 because it is a consolidation of two or more district having identical powers where the chance in organization does not change the geographical area in which the districts previously exercised their powers. (State CEQA Guidelines S: 15320.) This Consolidation is merely an organization or administrative activity which will not result in any reasonably foreseeable adverse environmental impacts. (State CEQA Guidelines S: 15378.) The geographic area under the collective powers of the East Quincy Services District and the Quincy Community Services District will not change due to the Consolidation thus exempting the Consolidation from environmental review.
