Document Description
A State of California legislative initiated program to adopt by ordinance reasonable local standards for the design, site development, and operation of emergency Bridge Housing Communities and the structures and facilities therein, to the extent that it is determined at the time of adoption that strict compliance with State and local standards or laws in existence at the time of that adoption would in any way prevent, hinder, or delay the mitigation of the effects of the shelter crisis. In addition, by State Law, BHC sites are not required to be consistent with the city's land use regulations (i.e., General Plan and zoning designations). AB 2176 sunsets on January 1, 2022. The City proposes to adopt a new ordinance for BHC. The proposed project is the BHC Ordinance and two potential BHC sites. The conditions and mitigation measures that are typically used to mitigate environmental impacts to a less than significant impact are included in the Conditions and Provisions of the BHC Ordinance.
