  1.  PLN 2009-1328, GENERAL PLAN HOUSING ELEMENT, LAND USE ELEMENT, AND ZONING CODE/MAP UPDATE
Applicant: City of Atascadero, 6907 El Camino Real, Atascadero, CA 93422
Project Title: General Plan Housing Element, Land Use Element, and Zoning Code/Map Update PLN 2009-1328 / GPA 2009-0025 / ZCH 2010-0162
Project Location: Citywide (San Luis Obispo County)
Project An update to the Housing Element of the City of Atascadero’s General Plan is
Description: proposed as required by Government Code Sections 65580 – 65589.8. The draft Housing Element provides implementation strategies for the 2007 -2014 planning period to meet RHNA and provide affordable and diverse, high quality housing opportunities to meet the needs of all segments of the community. Housing Element update efforts have been ongoing for the past several years, with multiple hearings before the City Council and Planning Commission, public workshops, completion of environmental documents, and review by the State (Housing and Community Development). The City has received notice from HCD that the draft Housing Element meets State requirements, and with official City Council adoption, the Housing Element is ready for State certification. General Plan and Zoning Ordinance updates are proposed in conjunction with the Housing Element adoption in order to meet the City’s current and unfulfilled Regional Housing Needs Allocation and to comply with Housing Element Policy 1.1, Programs 1 and 2. The General Plan High Density Land Use Designation is proposed to be increased from a maximum of sixteen (16) units per acre to a minimum of twenty (20) units per acre. A corresponding Zoning Ordinance Text Change and Zoning Map update are proposed to change the RMF-16 Zoning District is to RMF-20 (minimum 20 units per acre proposed). A second Municipal Code Text update is proposed to clarify definitions which relate to housing. The City’s outdated definition for “family” is proposed to be replaced with “single housekeeping unit” for describing use of dwellings. This revised description is proposed to comply with the law and use only nondiscriminatory occupancy standards to describe an interactive group of persons jointly occupying a single dwelling unit.
Proposed Environmental Determination: Based on the Initial Study prepared for the project, a Negative Declaration is proposed. The Negative Declaration is available for public review at 6907 El Camino Real, Community Development Department from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The public review period is from November 2, 2010, through December 1, 2010.
