General Plan and Zoning Amendments
Title 19 and 21A.50 Amendments
The City’s Planning Division is considering updates to portions of the Land Use Code to implement policies identified in Thriving in Place to mitigate involuntary displacement due to development pressure. The updates include the creation of a new Title 19 General Plans and amendments to Title 21A.50 Amendments. The identified policy goals for the Planning Division include establishing a community benefit policy for general plan and zoning amendments; the creation of a tenant relocation assistance program for households that are displaced due to location specific general plan and zoning amendments; replacement housing requirements for demolitions associated with requested amendments; and new standards for consideration when analyzing a zoning or general plan amendment that encompasses impacts from potential displacement.
With this update, Title 18.64.050 Residential Demolition Provisions will be amended to include provisions to ensure the replacement of housing units that have a similar rent and unit size if housing is demolished. Title 18.97 Mitigation of Residential Housing Loss will be deleted and replaced with the community benefit policy in Title 19 General Plans and Title 21A.50 Amendments. The community benefit policy will ensure the replacement of naturally occurring affordable housing that is lost to redevelopment and mitigate involuntary displacement.
The Planning Division held three informational meetings for interested members of the public to learn about the proposal and ask questions.
