Document Description
The Proposed Project is the Pacifica Housing Element (6th Cycle) Targeted General Plan Amendments, Rezoning, and Objective Development Standards Program. The General Plan Amendments and Rezoning component of Program HE-I-1 will create the regulatory framework to accommodate the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) sites inventory and promote development of multi-family housing, including rental housing, missing middle housing, and mixed-use development. Along with rezoning specific sites in order to develop housing, the Proposed Project will also involve General Plan amendments to existing land use designations. As such, the Proposed Project addresses land use constraints to make the production of housing more likely. It reflects the priority given in the General Plan overall and Housing Element specifically to focus development in existing commercial shopping centers and other infill locations. The Objective Development Standards component of Program HE-I-1 will create or revise objective development standards (“ODS”) applicable to the sites identified to meet the City’s RHNA. The Proposed Project would create or amend six ODS addressing the following: height; setbacks from property lines; lot coverage; floor area ratio (“FAR”); open space per dwelling unit; and, off-street parking.
