Processes and Procedures Ordinance

Loading Events
Dear Stakeholder,
The Processes and Procedures Ordinance (CPC-2016-3182-CA) is the initial part of a larger effort to comprehensively revise the City‘s Zoning Code to make it more responsive and accessible to the public. The proposed ordinance streamlines and reorganizes the rules that govern the steps involved in reviewing projects and adopting land use policy, while introducing a more user-friendly format.
An earlier draft of the ordinance was previously considered and approved by the City Planning Commission in 2018. In response to continued community input after the City Planning Commission hearing, City Planning has prepared a revised draft of the ordinance, which incorporates various changes.
Today, the revised draft of the Processes and Procedures Ordinance has been released for public comment. City Planning has also prepared the following resources: an annotated version of the revised ordinance to aid readers who are interested in tracking changes to the Code provisions; a fact sheet containing an overview of the ordinance, background information, and answers to frequently-asked questions; and a dedicated webpage that incorporates visual aids to explain core concepts behind the ordinance and key changes.
City Planning will be hosting an information session for the proposed ordinance by teleconference on January 13, 2021 from 1–3 p.m. The information session will include an overview of the ordinance and time for Q&A. Staff will also be available during scheduled virtual office hours to answer questions. Details on how to join the information session and sign up for virtual office hours will be provided in forthcoming emails.
Written comments may be submitted to In order to be incorporated in the staff recommendation report, comments must be submitted no later than one month before the City Planning Commission considers the item. The proposed ordinance is tentatively scheduled for consideration by the City Planning Commission in Spring of 2021.
