Community Benefit Program - Expansion of Latent Powers

After several nonprofits approached our Board about five years ago to expand our powers, FPUD has been given approval by LAFCO, the San Diego Local Agency Formation Commission to pursue providing a community benefit program that would include items such as operating parks & recreation services. LAFCO is the government watchdog agency tasked with overseeing Special Districts like FPUD.

There was a public hearing/protest hearing on June 14., 2022 LAFCO coordinated that hearing, held here at FPUD. This process allowed the public to weigh in on the proposed program. There was not sufficient public protest.

The approval is to expand Fallbrook Public Utility District’s activated functions to include (a) parks and recreation, (b) street lighting, and (c) roads and streets.
