HCD notified City of Roseville about City’s violation of the California Surplus Land Act (SLA)

On December 4, 2023 California’s Housing and Community Development (HCD) sent to the City of Roseville a Notice of Violation (NOV) concerning the City’s violation of California Surplus Land Act (SLA).

If the City does not cure or correct all such violations by February 4, 2024, and elects to proceed with the disposition of the Property, a penalty will be assessed to the City equal to 30 percent of the final sales price. (Gov. Code, § 54230.5, subd. (a)(1).)

HCD may also pursue additional remedies authorized under Government Code sections 65585 and 65585.1.

The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) found that the City of Roseville (“City”) violated the California Surplus Land Act (SLA) by selecting a developer in 2020 and entering into a PSA without first complying with the requirements of the SLA in place in 2020. Since then, the City failed to take the necessary steps to come into compliance with the SLA by either issuing a Notice of Availability (NOA) to all required entities or declaring the property “exempt surplus land.”
