Samoa/Finn Town/Fairhaven becoming one? Community Service District that is. Manila votes no to annex Samoa!
Last Thursday the town of Manila voted unanimously against annexing Manila with the town of Samoa. LAFCO or the Local Agency Formation Commission has a decision to make in the near future as they are the agency that will have to pencil out whether it makes sense for the Samoa Peninsula Fire District (SPFD) to become a Community Service District (CSD) operating the whole Peninsula from the 255 Samoa Bridge south. This has been an on going topic out on the Peninsula, dating back and even before I was a Director on the Samoa Peninsula Fire District Board. Last week the (SPFD) voted unanimously to continue the process to become its own CSD. This is in partnership with Danco Properties and their plans for a new housing development in Samoa. To build out Samoa, Danco needs the creation of a CSD to fill the criteria of a new water treatment facility and a other community services such as water delivery and Parks & Recreation. Overall plans will add up to 400 new houses. It sounds like the plan is changing its phasing processes. Phase "5" will actually be first phase and start developing on the south end of Samoa near the "Samoa Block" with an added mix of 100 affordable single family residents and apartments this summer of 2014.
