Ordinance No. 1657 (2019 Series) is a City enacted Ordinance amending Title 17 of the Municipal Code (Zoning Regulations) to implement the Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE), update and modernize the Zoning Regulations to include best practices and address minor miscellaneous clean up items. The Zoning Regulations are the key tool used to implement land use policy, as well as circulation policies related to parking management, transit, bicycling, and pedestrian accommodation. Following adoption of the LUCE, Planning staff in consultation with residents, architects, contractors, developers, advisory bodies and the Council identified the land use policies most effectively implemented via changes to the Zoning Regulations.  

The Council must vote again to approve this ordinance before it can take effect.  That action is tentatively scheduled for February 5, 2019, at a Regular City Council meeting to begin at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chamber of City Hall, 990 Palm Street.

Copies of the complete ordinance are available in the City Clerk's Office in City Hall and online at www.slocity.org.  For more information, contact Kyle Bell at 781-7524.
