Staff from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability are providing an overview of potential zoning code amendments that will change how some shelters and housing projects will be reviewed. These changes are to address the City Council's resolution directing us to 'simplify regulations, remove regulatory obstacles, and expedite processes for land use reviews and permits for affordable housing projects, mass shelters, and short-term housing.' Although some of these overviews have already taken place, several more are scheduled. You can check with the corresponding neighborhood or district coalition offices, or with project staff for details. Staff anticipates that a Proposed Draft of code changes will be available the week of August 8.
