Document Description
The City of Calimesa is proposing a “Residential Infill Priority Area Overlay Zone” (RIPAOZ) on 36 properties (proposed Project). The City was awarded a grant by the State of California Department of Housing and Community Development (“HCD”) SB 2 program to prepare the RIPAOZ Project in order to up-zone certain residential properties identified by the City to allow for higher density development including duplexes, townhomes, condos, and a limited amount of apartments by-right. The City was further awarded a supplementary grant by HCD Local Early Action Grants program, also referred to as the “LEAP” program, to assist in the preparation and adoption of planning documents and process improvements that accelerate housing production and facilitate compliance to implement the sixth cycle of the regional housing need assessment. The Project will revise the existing municipal code and amend the general plan to include an overlay zone allowing for higher residential density. The Project does not include any implementing development. Thus, no specific development projects are being proposed at this time. No on-site or off-site infrastructure improvements are being identified at this time, and no specific timelines for development of the sites is known at this time.
