DESIGN REVIEW COMMISSION AND PLANNING COMMISSION JOINT MEETING

 

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

August 14, 2017 at 6:30 PM 

City Hall, 2nd Floor Council Chambers (425 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 5, 2017.  In an effort to address concerns about "mansionization" of single-family neighborhoods, the Planning Division is preparing to revise the current Zoning Code Requirements. Revisions include changing the process and development regulations for new construction and additions/alterations to single-family homes.

On July 27, 2017 staff hosted a community meeting and received fantastic feedback on the initial proposals. Now, staff will bring the proposals and the community's feedback to a joint meeting involving the Planning and Design Review Commissions, requesting their input prior to creating an official recommendation.  

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.
