  • Approximately 50 million square feet of office and industrial space constructed
  • Cities in region put in severe development limitations to control population growth

Summary

  • Little or no existing base of walkable communities
  • Initial attraction to Central Valley was the sprawl!
  • Employment rich areas restricted housing development
  • No Jobs/Housing Balance
  • Job poor areas lack resources to provide amenities needed for Smart Growth
slide16

Solutions

Zoning Ordinance Update

- Flexibility with standards (setbacks, lot size, lot width, etc.)

- Promote high density (encourage small scale subdivisions)

slide17

Solutions

  • Update Transportation Element (LOS)
slide18

Solutions

  • Discourage “leapfrog” development
slide19

Solutions

  • Revise development fees (PFIP)
slide20

Solutions

  • Streamlined permitting process for smart growth projects
  • Fee deferrals/waivers for smart growth projects
