No earlier than 1:30 p.m., the Board will conduct an informational workshop from the Community Development Agency on Objective Development Design Standards (ODDS). Recent state housing legislation has established municipal mandates to streamline the review process for multifamily housing projects. Jurisdictions are now required to limit their review of qualifying projects to objective design and development standards and refrain from applying subjective discretionary policies. ODDS can include height, setback, lot coverage, building materials, architectural style, building patterns, and historic areas. Projects that would require a General Plan or zoning amendment would not be eligible for streamlined review. The first of two planned informational workshops will include a presentation on recent state housing laws and objective standards. The second workshop is set for February 11.
The Board conducted the workshop and received the presentation from the Community Development Agency. The second workshop is set for February 11 after 1:30 p.m. (following one other afternoon item).
