2020 Annexation Project -Notice of Availability (NOA)-Notice of Intent(NOI)-To Adopt A Mitigated Negative Declaration- Prepared by Denise Duffy & Associates

Map of 2020 Annexation of Existing & Proposed Boundaries

The proposed project is the 2020 CAWD Sphere of Influence (SOI) Amendment and
Annexation in accordance with relevant codes and ordinances of the District, local jurisdictions, and the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000. The project area includes all CAWD’s current jurisdictional boundaries in Monterey County, California and the areas being considered for SOI amendment and annexation; project areas include portions of the unincorporated communities of Carmel Valley and Carmel Highlands (Figure 1, attached). The project proposes annexation of approximately 925 acres of developed land, outside of the current CAWD SOI, in locations where the District either anticipates, or has received applications for, near-term sewer service connection requests. This acreage includes approximately 220 acres outside the District’s SOI but previously identified as “Future Study Area” located within the Carmel Highlands. The project actions identified above would result in the extension of the jurisdictional boundaries of the District to allow for future wastewater service extension in this area.
