After a 10-day extension, public review period of Residential Infill Project Discussion Draft closed on November 30

Thanks to all who took the time to learn about the Discussion Draft proposals and share your feedback with staff over the eight-week review period. Staff is currently reading and categorizing all the comments received and preparing a summary report. Look for the What We Heard Summary Report on the project website by mid- January. In addition to this report, all the comments in their entirety will be posted on the project website.

How will comments on the Discussion Draft be used?

Comments received will guide staff as they make refinements to the Discussion Draft proposals and develop a Proposed Draft for the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) to consider next spring. (We will provide more specifics on the Proposed Draft publication date and upcoming PSC hearings in the next few weeks) After hearing testimony from community members, the PSC will make recommendations to City Council, which will also hold public hearings (on the PSC’s Recommended Draft). After considering testimony and deliberating, Council will vote to adopt the final package of map and code amendments.
