Section 30169

(a)

The Legislature hereby finds and declares that a dispute exists as to the proper location of the inland boundary of the coastal zone in the area commonly known as Aliso Viejo and that, after extensive review of the history of this boundary segment, the criteria utilized to establish the boundary in 1976, and the relevant topographical information, it is possible to reach differing conclusions of equal validity regarding the proper location of the coastal zone boundary. The Legislature further finds that it is not possible to determine objectively which ridgeline feature in the Aliso Viejo area most closely approximates the boundary criteria utilized by the Legislature in 1976, and that it is in the best public interest to resolve the current boundary dispute in order to avoid further delay in the completion of the local coastal program for Orange County. The Legislature further finds that a timely resolution of this boundary dispute can best be accomplished by adjusting the coastal zone boundary in the manner set forth in this section and within the general framework of Section 30103 and consistent with the need to protect the coastal resources of the Aliso Viejo area and to carry out the requirements of Section 30213.

(b)

In the Aliso Creek area of Orange County approximately 286 acres are added and approximately 1,020 acres are excluded as specifically shown on maps 28A and 28B dated April 15, 1980, and filed on April 22, 1980, with the office of the Secretary of State and which are on file in the office of the commission. The maps are hereby adopted by reference. The changes made in the inland boundary of the coastal zone by this section are in addition to any changes made by any map referred to in Section 30150, except to the extent that the changes made by this section affect a segment of the boundary previously changed by the map, in which case the changes made by this section shall supersede any of those previous changes.

(c)

The executive director of the commission may adjust the precise location of the inland boundary of the coastal zone not more than 100 yards in either a seaward or landward direction in order to conform the precise boundary location to the specific limits of development adjacent to the coastal zone boundary as shown on maps 28A and 28B. However, in any subdivided area, the executive director may adjust the precise location of the inland boundary of the coastal zone not more than 100 feet in a landward direction in order to include any development of the first row of lots immediately adjacent to the boundary as shown on those maps, where the executive director determines that the adjustment is necessary to ensure that adequate controls will be applied to the development in order to minimize any potential adverse effects on the coastal zone resources. The executive director shall prepare a detailed map showing any of the changes and shall file a copy of the map with the county clerk.

(d)

Prior to the adoption and approval of a drainage control plan by the County of Orange for the Aliso Viejo Planned Community (as designated by Amendment No. L. U. 79-1 to the Land Use Element of the Orange County General Plan), the county shall consult with the executive director of the commission to ensure that any drainage control facilities located outside the coastal zone are adequate to provide for no increase in peak runoff, by virtue of the development of the Aliso Viejo Planned Community, which would result in adverse impacts on coastal zone resources.

(e)

On or before January 31, 1981, the commission shall, after public hearing and in consultation with the County of Orange, certify or reject a local coastal program segment prepared and submitted by the county on or before August 1, 1980, for the following parcel in the Aliso Creek area: land owned by the Aliso Viejo Company, a California corporation, as of April 22, 1980, within the coastal zone as amended by this section. The local coastal program required by this subdivision shall, for all purposes of this division, constitute a certified local coastal program segment for that parcel in the County of Orange. The segment of the countys local coastal program for the parcel may be amended pursuant to this division relating to the amendment of local coastal programs. If the commission neither certifies nor rejects the submitted local coastal program within the time limit specified in this subdivision, the land added to the coastal zone by this section shall no longer be subject to this division. It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this subdivision, that a procedure to expedite the preparation and adoption of a local coastal program for that land be established so that the public and the affected property owner know as soon as possible what uses are permissible.

(f)

The commission, through its executive director, shall enter into a binding and enforceable agreement with Aliso Viejo Company, and the agreement shall be recorded as a covenant to run with the land with no prior liens other than tax and assessment liens restricting the Aliso Viejo Planned Community. The agreement shall provide for all of the following:

(1)

The Aliso Viejo Company shall provide at least 1,000 units of for-sale housing to moderate-income persons at prices affordable to a range of households earning from 81 to 120 percent of the median income for Orange County as adjusted for family size pursuant to the commissions housing guidelines on affordable housing dated January 22, 1980, and July 16, 1979, and any additional provisions as agreed to between the commission and the Aliso Viejo Company as referred to in this subdivision.
For purposes of this subdivision, median income constitutes the figure most recently established by the Department of Housing and Urban Development at the time the public report for the units, or any portion thereof, is issued by the Bureau of Real Estate. The affordable units required by this subdivision shall be priced equally over the moderate-income range and shall reflect a reasonable mix as to size and number of bedrooms.

(2)

The 1,000 units provided pursuant to this subdivision shall be sold subject to controls on resale substantially as provided in the commissions housing guidelines on affordable housing, dated January 22, 1980, and July 16, 1979, and any additional provisions as agreed to between the commission and the Aliso Viejo Company as referred to in this subdivision. On or before entering the agreement provided for herein, the Aliso Viejo Company shall enter into an agreement, approved by the executive director of the commission, with the Orange County Housing Authority or any other appropriate housing agency acceptable to the executive director of the commission to provide for the administration of the resale controls including the qualification of purchasers.

(3)

The 1,000 units provided pursuant to this subdivision may be dispersed throughout the Aliso Viejo Planned Community, and shall be completed and offered for sale prior to, or simultaneously with, other units in the overall project, so that at any time at least 712 percent of the units constructed shall be resale-controlled until the 1,000 units are completed.

(4)

The Department of Housing and Community Development and the County of Orange shall be third-party beneficiaries to the agreement provided in this subdivision and shall have the power to enforce any and all provisions of the agreement.

(5)

This agreement may only be amended upon the determination of the Aliso Viejo Company or its successors or assigns, the commission, the Department of Housing and Community Development, and the County of Orange that the change is necessary in order to prevent adverse effects on the supply of low- and moderate-income housing opportunities and to improve the methods of providing the housing at continually affordable prices.
The Legislature hereby finds and declares that, because the Aliso Viejo Company, in addition to the 1,000 units of controlled housing provided in this subdivision, will provide for 2,000 units of subsidized affordable housing for low-income persons and 2,000 affordable housing units for moderate-income persons pursuant to the companys housing program, the purposes of Section 30213 will be met by enactment of this subdivision. The Legislature further finds and declares that the general provisions of this subdivision are specifically described and set forth in letters by Aliso Viejo Company and the executive director of the commission published in the Journals of the Senate and the Assembly of the 197980 Regular Session, and it is the intent of the Legislature that the commission and Aliso Viejo Company conform the agreement provided in this subdivision to the specific provisions described in the letters.

(g)

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the application of this division by the commission to the development or use of any infrastructure necessary and appropriate to serve development within the portions of the Aliso Viejo Planned Community located inland of the coastal zone as amended by this section, shall be strictly limited to addressing direct impacts on coastal zone resources and shall be carried out in a manner that assures that the infrastructure will be provided. Furthermore, the commission shall amend without conditions its prior permit No. A-61-76 to provide for its release of sewer outfall flow limitations necessary and appropriate to serve the Aliso Viejo Planned Community located inland of the coastal zone as amended by this subdivision. For purposes of this subdivision, infrastructure means those facilities and improvements necessary and appropriate to develop, construct, and serve urban communities, including but not limited to, streets, roads, and highways; transportation systems and facilities; schools; parks; water and sewage systems and facilities; electric, gas, and communications systems and facilities; and drainage and flood control systems and facilities. Notwithstanding this subdivision, the commission may limit, or reasonably condition, the use of the transit corridor in Aliso Creek Valley to transit uses, uses approved by the commission that will serve the Aliso Greenbelt Project prepared by the State Coastal Conservancy, the provision of access to and from the sewage treatment works in Aliso Creek Valley, emergency uses, and drainage and flood control systems and facilities and other services approved pursuant to this subdivision.

(h)

This section shall become operative only when the commission and Aliso Viejo Company have entered into the binding and enforceable agreement provided for in this section, and the agreement has been duly recorded with the county recorder of Orange County.
