Title

Ad hoc Code Enforcement Advisory Committee recommending the Board receive and file an update on the committee’s work to date and future plans in regards to vegetation management.  (Est. Time: 45 Min.)

Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

On January 23, 2018, the Board of Supervisors approved the Ad hoc Code Enforcement Advisory Committee to look at amending County Ordinance Code, Chapter 09.02 - Code Enforcement, pursuant to Board Policy A-3, to direct staff to study more defined code enforcement process timelines and evaluate services provided, which does not include Vacation Home Rentals (Legistar Item #18-0033).

 

Since the Board’s approval, the ad hoc advisory committee has identified different Code Enforcement topics: vegetation management, building codes, minimum housing, vehicle abatement and solid waste. Analysis of all of these topics together would provide an overwhelming amount of information. Due to the large amount of information, the ad hoc committee decided to study different code enforcement topics separately.

 

The first topic to update the Board on is vegetation management. The ad hoc committee has met with community stakeholders four times to discuss vegetation management issues around the County and the state. In addition, the committee has been collecting information from other counties around the state. This will be the second update to the Board of Supervisors.
