Title
Development Services Department providing a status report on the Zoning Ordinance Update and requesting further direction by the Board of Supervisors.
Body
FUNDING: N/A
 
Background: Development Services Department presenting status report on the Zoning Ordinance Update and requests direction on the following components:
 
1. Should Table 2-4 from the General Plan Land Use Element be amended as a first step in adoption of the Zoning Ordinance?
2. Do the zones proposed in the administrative draft meet the needs of the County to implement the General Plan and provide an adequate range of zones for each land use designation?
3. Is the organization and structure of the ordinance appropriate for the comprehensive update to Title 17?
4. Is deferring the items listed in the report appropriate at this time? Should the list be modified?
5. Is the process by which DSD proposes to proceed for adoption within 6 to 8 months acceptable?
 
Reason for Recommendation:
This is an opportunity to provide a status report and to present the administrative draft of the Zoning Ordinance to the Board of Supervisors and to identify important policy decisions to be made in order to proceed with the next steps in the adoption process.
 
Action to be taken following Board approval:
1. Modify (if needed) the administrative draft based on Board direction to become the final working draft, the Public Review Draft (PRD)
2. Post the PRD text and maps on the internet
3. Initiate public outreach campaign
4. Begin CEQA process - Negative Declaration or MND anticipated
