NZO Effective Date and Project Applicability

NOTICE: It is expected that work on the NZO will culminate with adoption by the City Council in the summer of 2017 with an effective date at least 30 days later. The Planning Commission has recommended to the City Council that, upon NZO adoption, any structure for which a Project Design Approval or other discretionary land use approval has been granted, or Building Permit has been issued, may be completed and used in accordance with the current Zoning Ordinance; all other projects will be subject to the regulations in the New Zoning Ordinance. City Council will make the final decision on what projects are affected by the new Zoning regulations. In the Coastal Zone, the existing Zoning Ordinance regulations will continue to apply until the New Zoning Ordinance is certified by the California Coastal Commission, tentatively anticipated for late 2018/early 2019.


The public is invited to a special meeting of the Cityrsquo;s Ordinance Committee for public comment and review of the NZO. The Ordinance Committee will be forwarding recommendations to City Council for adoption of the New Zoning Ordinance in summer 2017.
