NOP - Notice of Preparation
Present Land Use
Affected parcels from RL (Residential Low Density) to RM (Residential Medium Density) for all parcels; change the ZD from RS (Residential Single Family) to RM (Residential Multi-Family) for parcels in the Coastal Zone; and change the zoning designation from R-1 (Residential One-Family) to R-3 (Residential Multiple Family) for parcels located outside the Coastal Zone. Q-Qualified combining zone designations will be used to tailor the zoning for the parcels to site-specific conditions, to establish a minimum residential density of 16 units per acre, and to allow more than four nits per building.

Document Description
NOTE: Revised NOP The updated Housing Element of the Humboldt County General Plan requires the County to increase the supply of land planned and zoned for multifamily residential uses to meet the future housing needs of lower income households. The project will re-zone properties to increase the multi-family housing development potential in the County by ~ 980 units. Between 60 and 100 acres of land will likely be affected. The county will use the Supplemental EIR (SEIR) to help select the properties for rezoning.
