PP 17-0006: Annual Community Development Code Amendments - 2017

Project Background/Summary

Code Maintenance (LOC Chapters 50.01 – 50.08, 50.10)

As discussed during the Commission’s 2017 goalsetting, staff expects to see a decline in the number of annual amendments as we continue to fine-tune the Community Development Code (CDC), which was reorganized in 2012 (the current list contains 25 amendments, as compared to 33 amendments identified in 2016). However, code maintenance in response to City Council direction and changes in state law will continue to be an important part the City’s planning program.Code Maintenance amendments are those that correct or add cross-references, clarify existing standards, and update requirements based on changes to other codes (e.g., Tree Code, Building Code, etc.). The maintenance items generally do not involve policy considerations.
