There seems to be some confusion, so let’s clear something up: The Residential Infill Project is still going strong.
Maybe folks think that it’s all wrapped up because they haven’t seen project staff out in the community as much lately. That’s because they’ve been busy at their desks preparing draft Zoning Code and map changes to implement the concepts City Council approved in December 2016.
“We’ll have something to share with folks in the early fall,” says Project Manager Morgan Tracy. “We’re organizing events and opportunities for public review, so keep an eye out for announcements on the website or check in with your neighborhood association.” The public review period will include drop-in hours, other meetings and online comment opportunities.
After hearing from community members, staff will make revisions and present a Proposed Draft to the Planning and Sustainability Commission at the start of the new year. The PSC will take testimony from the public before making a recommendation to City Council, who will also hear testimony before making their decisions.
See a timeline below (we’re in the orange section). And stay tuned for updates about events and opportunities to give feedback on the discussion draft as well as dates for PSC and City Council hearings. You may also sign up to receive periodic email updates.
