Phelan Pinon Hills Community Services District Approved by LAFCO

(Best Syndication) SAN BERNARDINO - The San Bernardino County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) today voted to give final approval for the formation of a Phelan Pinon Hills Community Services District. The new district, which will combine three existing Board of Supervisors-governed special districts in the area, will oversee park, street lighting and water services in the area.

"This is a victory for the Phelan and Pinon Hills communities because it means more local control," said First District Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt. "This will give local residents the opportunity to be more closely involved in decisions that affect their area."

Supervisor Mitzelfelt, who serves on the LAFCO Board of Commissioners, helped guide the proposal through the LAFCO process. Other assistance from his office included waiving the petition requirement for the initial application so that residents would not have to gather signatures, paying for a feasibility study and contributing $50,000 of his discretionary funds to resolve a tax equity discrepancy that arose during the process.

"I would also like to commend Charlie Johnson for his leadership on the feasibility committee," added Mitzelfelt. "Charlie not only helped to ensure the process was completed quickly, but also that it was thorough and inclusive."

The final step in forming the district will be an election by residents within the boundaries of the proposed district. The election is scheduled to take place in February. Voters will also vote to select directors for the district during the same election.
