Housing Element Rezone Program Implementation
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Multiple, Citywide Project
Document Description
The project includes: (1) a General Plan Map and Text amendment to redesignate land uses and adjust residential densities on up to 19 identified sites throughout the City; (2) a Town Center Specific Plan Amendment to redesignate land uses and adjust allowable residential densities on up to eight (8) identified sites within the Town Center; (3) rezoning of sites to match new General Plan land use designations and densities; and (4) corresponding zoning ordinance text amendments in support of by-right housing sites, a new mixed-use zoning overlay, and a modified R-30 (Urban Residential) Zone. Although not part of the Housing Element Sites Inventory, two vacant properties along Graves Avenue that are currently in the R-14 (Medium High Density Residential) Zone (APNs 387-061-11 & -12) are included in the project scope for rezoning to the General Commercial (CG) Zone to remove them from consideration as housing sites. In addition, the zoning ordinance text amendment would consider conditionally allowing recreational vehicle storage in the CG Zone. This project would implement Program 9 of the City’s Housing Element to ensure that the Housing Element Sites Inventory identifies potential housing sites throughout the City that cumulatively result in sufficient housing capacity to comply with RHNA requirements. The project would include the creation of a new mixed-use zoning overlay and a higher density residential range for the R-30 Zone of 30 to 36 dwelling units per acre. The project would also implement Housing Element Program 10 by creating Objective Design Standards for sites identified as by-right housing sites in the Housing Element Sites Inventory.
