The public is invited to participate in two public hearings at the upcoming virtual Planning Commission meeting on September 13, 2021, at 6:00 p.m.
One of the public hearings is to consider a resolution recommending to the City Council to adopt two new affordable housing fees and adopt associated Title 17 Amendments. City Council will consider the recommendation at a later hearing to adopt the fees and amendments to Title 17. View the Notice here.
The City hosted a virtual public meeting on August 24, 2021, regarding two ongoing Affordable Housing Fee Studies. The two studies support adoption of affordable housing fees for new residential and non-residential development to implement policies established in the City’s General Plan Housing Element. A recording of the meeting is available here. Slides from the presentation are also available here.
The other public hearing is to consider a resolution recommending to the City Council adoption of General Plan and Zoning Amendments to Allow Entertainment and Recreation Services in the General Commercial (C-G) land use designation and zoning district.
The C-G land use designation and zoning district includes various commercial parcels around the City. C-G currently allows a variety of commercial and heavy commercial uses. However, the General Plan and the City’s zoning regulations do not currently allow entertainment and recreation uses, like gyms and dance studios, in C-G. The proposed General Plan and Zoning Amendments would make those types of uses allowed uses in C-G. View the Notice here.
The agenda and how to participate will be available prior to the meeting date at www.CityofGoleta.org/GoletaMeetings.
