The Santa Barbara City Planning Commission will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, September 6, 2016, to discuss the Average Unit-Size Density (AUD) Incentive Program (Santa Barbara Municipal Code Chapter 28.20). This is a follow-up meeting from the Planning Commissionrsquo;s July 21st discussion of the AUD Program. The purpose of this meeting will be to review the AUD Incentive Program policy objectives in the General Plan and Zoning Ordinance, and consider whether the stated objectives are being met, and/or if minor ordinance amendments should be considered, and provide a recommendation to City Council.

The AUD Incentive Program carries out a key program directed by the 2011 General Plan. The Program facilitates the construction of smaller housing units by allowing increased density and development standard incentives in selected areas of the City. Housing types that provide housing opportunities to the Cityrsquo;s workforce are encouraged and facilitated by the program.
