COMMUNITY MEETING

 

​Update on R-1 Development Moratorium and "Mansionization" Ordinance

​July 27, 2017 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM 

Grapevine Arbor (324 S. Mission Drive)


WHAT IS THIS MEETING ABOUT? 
The moratorium for demolition of Single-Family Residences in the R-1 zone will be expiring on October 4, 2017.  The Planning Division is working to ensure that resident-expressed concerns about "mansionization" of single-family in the community are adequately addressed.  

As part of the strategy to address this issue, staff is preparing to revise the current Zoning Code requirements, including the process and development regulations for new construction and additions/alterations to single-family homes.  We want to share our ideas and hear yours!  

WHO CAN I CONTACT FOR MORE INFORMATION?
For additional information, please contact Nicholas Bezanson, Assistant Planner at (626) 308-2806 ext. 4626 or via email at nbezonson@sgch.org.
