[ARCHIVED] City Council reviews draft zone text amendment, continuing discussion to 9/17 meeting

City Council to review contract for a traffic signal installation at San Gabriel and Commercial

The following is a wrap-up of the September 3 City Council meeting. You may view the complete agenda here as well as a video of the meeting here.

Last night, the City Council discussed and provided modifications to the zone text amendment staff report and directed City staff to bring back the item to the September 17 City Council meeting for consideration.

Between 2016 and 2017, several bills were signed by former Governor Brown that introduced new regulations for the development of accessory dwelling units. The legislation removed regulatory barriers that deterred ADU development and local municipalities were given three options to adopt the new policies:

  1. Adopt the state standards as their own ordinance
  2. Choose not to adopt anything, which subjects the municipality to state standards
  3. Adopt its own ADU ordinance to tailor requirements to existing development patterns in their community

After an analysis, staff from the City’s Planning Division believed that the City should encourage ADU development but also ensure compatibility with the existing single family residences in the community. Several segments of the San Gabriel Municipal Code were identified for deletion or modification, including the deletion of outdated references to second residential units and senior housing units, the clarification of current ADU language and the recordation of a covenant.
