ON-SITE POSTING OF DRAWINGS FOR PROPOSED AVERAGE UNIT-SIZE DENSITY INCENTIVE PROGRAM (AUD) PROJECTS
To better inform the community of proposed development, the City of Santa Barbara Planning Division is implementing a noticing requirement for all projects proposing five or more net new units under the AUD Program. In addition to the City’s standard yellow Notice of Development sign, applicants are required to fabricate and post at the project site a companion sign displaying drawings of the proposed building(s). The purpose of this supplemental sign is to provide an additional visual aid to better inform the general public, interested parties, and decision-makers of the scope, size, and design of the proposed development. The sign must be at least 2 feet by 3 feet and must be installed at least ten days prior to the date of the first publicly noticed hearing and maintained on-site. Later, as the project is revised and refined, the sign must be updated to display the design submitted for Project Design Approval at least ten days prior to the Project Design Review hearing. This new requirement becomes effective for projects with the first publicly noticed hearing in August 2017.
The City’s On-Site Notice Posting Instructions handout has been updated to include instructions on obtaining or creating the sign, and posting it on the site:
