Developing Small Single-Family Lots

We are proposing recommendations for changes to new development on small, single-family lots.
We are proposing recommendations for development on small, single-family lots to preserve the character of the neighborhoods.

Catch Up On Our Progress

We presented our preliminary recommendation for permanent standards to City Council in March, 2013 and our draft proposal to council in June, 2013. We incorporated public comments on those drafts into our final draft ordinance and explanatory Director’s Report, which we released in September, 2013. We accepted comments on the final ordinance and Director's Report until mid-October and we made further refinements based on that input.

We have prepared a revised ordinance and Director's Report, discussed them with the Mayor, and sent them to City Council for their consideration. The City Council's Planning, Land Use, and Sustainability (PLUS) Committee will hold a public hearing to take comments on our proposed legislation on Friday, April 18, at 2:00 p.m., and then the proposal will progress to the full council. Read this notice for more information on the public hearing. Agendas for upcoming meetings can be found on the PLUS Committee and full City Council web pages.
