PA-2100001, 3, 4 - Development Title Text Amendment, Zone Reclassification, and General Plan Text Amendment of San Joaquin County.
Development Title Text Amendment No. PA-2100001, Zone Reclassification No. PA-2100003, And General Plan Text Amendment No. PA-2100004 of San Joaquin County. This project, referred to as the Development Title Update project, consists of 3 applications to address consistency with the 2035 General Plan approved in 2016. The project applications are as follows:
1) Development Title Text Amendment No. PA-2100001 to revise San Joaquin County’s Development Title (Title 9 of the County Code) to be consistent with and implement the 2035 General Plan. The amendments include changes to the County’s development regulations, such as zoning and subdivision controls, and other regulations related to uses, infrastructure, services, and fees.
2) Zone Reclassification No. PA-2100003 to align the zoning with the 2035 General Plan map designation in the urban and rural communities of the County, and also in the urban fringe around incorporated cities. Reclassifications are proposed to address the following: Zoning inconsistencies that existed prior to approval of the 2035 General Plan and zoning inconsistencies resulting from landowner requests or staff recommendations for General Plan map redesignation approved by the Board of Supervisors with the adoption of the 2035 General Plan.
3) General Plan Text Amendment No. PA-2100004 to correct internal inconsistencies with technical amendments and to ensure that the updated Development Title is consistent with the General Plan’s policies and standards and with State law. The proposed technical amendments eliminate unreasonable restrictions that limit implementation of General Plan policies, and also add an I/W (Warehouse Industrial) designation that is consistent with the existing I-W (Warehouse Industrial) zone. These amendments will facilitate streamlining the permitting process, which is one of the goals for the Development Title Update.
