NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Citywide Applicability, Amendment of the Density Bonus Ordinance will apply to all lands zoned for residential development.

Document Description
Effective January 1, 2005, SB 1818 requires municipalities to grant greater density bonuses with fewer restrictions and to provide additional incentives for projects consisting of affordable housing and/or daycare facilities. The purpose of this bill is to increase the flexibility and usefulness of density bonus law by reducing the minimum percentage of targeted units needed to obtain a density bonus and by increasing the amount of density bonus that can be obtained with the percentage of targeted units increased. Chapter 14.09.116 - Density Bonus, of the Land Use and Development Code must be amended to incorporate the new law. The changes in the law will require the City to grant density bonuses in more situations and to identify concessions that are to be automatically granted in exchange for the construction of affordable units.
