Your property is within a zoning district that would be affected by a proposed amendment to the Zoning Ordinance. This amendment applies to 16 different zoning districts in which residential development is permitted. The owners of approximately 32,000 properties within these zoning districts received a letter outlining the proposed amendment and alerting them to an upcoming Planning Commission public hearing.

In these 16 zoning districts, density is expressed as a lot yield or “lots per acre.” In order to increase consistency across all zoning districts, the proposed amendment would uniformly state residential density as the “maximum number of dwelling units” per acre (or other land area).
No, this amendment will not result in either a reduction or increase in the number of dwelling units currently permitted on a parcel.
Since this amendment will not result in either a reduction or an increase in the number of dwelling units currently permitted, it is not expected to affect the value of properties in the subject zoning districts.
No. This amendment will not affect property tax rates applied to residential property.
Yes, you are still allowed to build an accessory dwelling unit/structure as long as it meets the applicable requirements of the Zoning Ordinance (the requirements for accessory dwelling units/structures are not being changed by this amendment).
Currently, the amendment is scheduled to be presented at the Planning Commission Public Hearing on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. If the Planning Commission approves the amendment at the March 26 meeting, it will be forwarded to the Board of Supervisors for consideration and vote at a future Board of Supervisors Public Hearing. You will receive another notice for this future Board of Supervisors Public Hearing.
