THE PEOPLE OF THE CITY OF SANTA ROSA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

Section 1.  The Council of the City of Santa Rosa finds, based on the evidence and records presented, that the prezoning designation of RR-20 SR (Rural Residential with Scenic Road Combining) District with a Scenic Road combining district is an appropriate classification of the property identified in Section 2 and such classification is consistent with the Santa Rosa General Plan in that:

a. The annexation is a logical extension of the City boundary because it is contiguous and within the urban boundary.

b. The property is situated within the Very Low Density Residential land use designation as shown on the Land Use Graphic of the City's General Plan, which designation permits Very Low Density Residential development at 0.2 to 2 dwellings per acre.

c. The prezoning is consistent with the General Plan land use designation because they implement the goals and policies of the underlying land use designation.

d. Adequate City services can be provided for the proposed annexation.
