Document Description
The Housing Element Focused Rezone Program proposes to amend the existing zoning for two proposed sites where specific development proposals have been filed with the County and eight alternative sites that could receive increased density designations. This program is being proposed in order to comply with State Housing and Community Development requirements to demonstrate the capacity to provide additional affordable housing opportunities to County residents and is necessary to maintain certification of the 2003-2008 Housing Element update to the County of Santa Barbara General Plan. The two proposed sites are located in Orcutt and the remaining alternative sites are located in Orcutt, Vandenberg Village and Mission Hills.
