West Covina Development Code Update
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Project includes updates to two sections of the City’s Municipal Code, the Subdivision Code (Title 20) and the Zoning Code (Title 26) into one Development Code (Title 26). These sections of the Municipal Code regulate how construction projects are processed and what requirements they must comply with. These projects can range from small additions onto single-family homes to new shopping centers. The goal of this effort is to create a new, streamlined development code that establishes clear and concise regulations for property owners, architects, and developers. Some sections of the existing code have not been updated since the last comprehensive update in 1980. The new code will eliminate outdated rules and regulations; provide regulations for new uses; and update the Code for consistency with the City’s Housing Element and recent State legislation. It is intended that this code will simplify the zoning process at the City.
