Planning Commission Public Hearing
updated: Apr 28, 2014, 4:54 PM

Source: City of Santa Barbara

Planning Commission Public Hearing: The Planning Commission will consider initiation of a General Plan Amendment to update the Housing Element of the City's General Plan in accordance with State Housing Element law.

Housing Elements are required to be updated at least every five years with mandatory review and certification by the State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). The Housing Element Update will address the City's 2015-2023 planning period, and will be prepared in compliance with State law, including analysis of existing and projected community housing needs and identification of goals, policies and quantified objectives to meet those needs.

This update is required due to legislative changes associated with the adoption of the Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) and a new 8-year planning period. Because the City's Housing Element was recently certified in 2012, substantial policy changes are not proposed. It is primarily an update of housing information as required by State law.

Public Involvement: You are invited to attend this hearing. Written comments are welcome and will be entered into the public record. Written information should be submitted prior to the meeting at the Planning Division Office, 630 Garden St; by mail attention Planning Commission Secretary, P.O. Box 1990, Santa Barbara, CA 93102-1990; or by email at PCSecretary@SantaBarbaraCA.gov, and received no later than 4:30 P.M. on the Monday before the Planning Commission hearing. Please submit 12 copies of any written materials over 2 pages. Written comments are accepted at and up to the time of the hearing; however, the Planning Commission may not have time to consider materials submitted after the Monday deadline.
