CA Gov't Code Section 56133.5


A pilot program is hereby established for the Napa and San Bernardino commissions. If consistent with adopted policy, the Napa and San Bernardino commissions may authorize a city or district to provide new or extended services outside its jurisdictional boundary and outside its sphere of influence to support existing or planned uses involving public or private properties, subject to approval at a noticed public hearing in which the commission makes all of the following determinations:


The extension of service or services deficiency was identified and evaluated in a review of municipal services prepared pursuant to Section 56430.


The extension of service will not result in either (1) adverse impacts on open space or agricultural lands or (2) growth inducing impacts.


A sphere of influence change involving the subject territory and its affected agency is not feasible under this division or desirable based on the adopted policies of the commission.


Subdivision (d) of Section 56133 shall apply to any request for new or extended services pursuant to this section.


For purposes of this section, “planned use” means any project that is included in an approved specific plan as of July 1, 2015.


The Napa and San Bernardino commissions shall submit a report before January 1, 2020, to the Legislature on their participation in the pilot program, including how many requests for extension of services were received pursuant to this section and the action by the commission to approve, disapprove, or approve with conditions. The report required to be submitted pursuant to this subdivision shall be submitted in compliance with Section 9795 of the Government Code.


The pilot program established pursuant to this section shall be consistent with Chapter 8.5 (commencing with Section 1501) of the Public Utilities Code.


This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2021, and as of that date is repealed.
