Document Description
The City of Sausalito recently adopted a 6th Cycle Housing Element Update as an amendment to the Sausalito General Plan. The Housing Element Programs Project would implement those programs in the Housing Element that would allow the City to further its objective of providing additional housing in the city to meet its RHNA requirements. Implementation of Program 4 involves the City completing rezoning and/or adopting overlay zones to allow development of residential units on identified opportunity sites at densities identified in the Housing Element. The Housing Element created a goal of creating a total capacity for 908 units during the 6th Cycle Planning Period of 2023-2031, of which a capacity of 811 units would be created as a result of rezoning to make opportunity sites for future housing development as further identified in the Housing Element. As part of Program 4, in order to accommodate the City’s remaining RHNA of 463 units plus a buffer for each of the income categories, the Project would rezone opportunity sites to ensure the ability to develop housing at specified densities. In conjunction with Program 4, the proposed Project would also implement Program 8, entitled “Public Property Conversion to Housing,” to address making publicly-owned sites available for development during the 2023-2031 planning period. The City would implement portions of Program 16, entitled “Zoning Ordinance Amendments,” including the paragraphs that address low barrier navigation centers, supportive and transitional housing, employee housing, mobile home and manufactured housing, height limits, and streamlined ministerial review, to reduce governmental constraints and implement mandates of State law. Program 19, bullet 1, would result in the development and publication of Objective Design and Development Standards (ODDS) to address multifamily development at densities envisioned by the General Plan, Zoning Code, and Program 4.
