Commission must consider Four Factors (Gov’t Code Section 56425): Present and Planned Land Uses Present and Probable Need for Facilities and Services Present capacity of facilities and adequacy of services Social and Economic Communities, if relevant

5 Timely Availability of Water Supplies
LAFCo is Required (Gov’t Code Section 56668) to Consider the Timely Availability of Water Supply A Sphere Plan can make this Assessment on a District-wide Basis by Considering: Water Entitlements Storage Capacity Treatment System Distribution System

6 Nevada LAFCo Sphere of Influence Policy
Sphere Planning Horizons (3 time periods) Phased Annexation Plan Master Service Element that demonstrates the agency’s capacity to provide services to meet the needs of population
