Document Description
This Initial Study provides an assessment of the proposed Development Code Update and Design Guidelines. The updated Development Code and the Design Guidelines were published in draft form on November 30, 2007, and are being reviewed concurrently with this Initial Study and Negative Declaration. The Development Code Update involves revision and refinement of three selected chapters of the Municipal Code, namely the Zoning Code, Subdivision Ordinance and Grading Ordinance. These revisions are intended to bring the Development Code into closer conformity with the City's General Plan; to refine and clarify the Development Code's regulations, guidelines and requirements; to ensure consistency within and between the various components of the Code; and to permit the City to comply with State and federal water quality regulations. The Design Guidelines provide recommendations for new development that are intended to improve the character and quality of development projects in the City. This Initial Study is tiered off of the City of Oroville 1995 General Plan EIR, which was adopted in August 1995. Findings of Fact and the Statement of Overriding Consideration for this EIR were also adopted in August 1995.
