City Council to Consider Recommended Changes to Zoning CodeMon. Jan. 23rd - 6:30PM
City Council Chambers

In 2012 the Planning Commission began to have discussions about revisions to Chapter 17 of the City Code, otherwise known as the Zoning Code (Code). These discussions followed and were partially in response to a 2009 comprehensive update of the Piedmont General Plan and the 2011 and 2014 updates to the Plan’s Housing Element, which included several goals and actions that necessitated revisions to the Zoning Code. There are many reasons to make amendments to Chapter 17. Some revisions are mandatory in order to stay in compliance with the General Plan and Housing Element. Other revisions are not mandatory but are equally important to improving planning services in the city.
