Proposed Development Code Updates
THURSDAY, MAY 15, FROM 4-6 P.M., CITY HALL
You are invited to learn about proposed updates to the City’s Development Code, including:
- Amendments that are intended to streamline and simplify sections of the Code that allow adjustments or variances to code standards and regulate nonconforming structures and uses.
- Amendments that would bring the Code into compliance with State requirements for clear and objective housing approval standards, intended to reduce unnecessary costs and delays in permitting needed housing.
- Other amendments for the purpose of clarifying and updating various code provisions.
There will be presentations at 4 and 5 p.m. with an opportunity for questions and discussion with staff after each session. Drafts of the proposed Code updates will be available at the meeting.
The Planning Commission is tentatively scheduled to hold public hearings on these amendments on May 28 (clarifying amendments), July 28 (variances and nonconformities) and August 11 (clear and objective housing standards).
