Planning & Sustainability Commission considers amendments to the Zoning Code for mass shelters

Staff with the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) presented the Mass Shelters and Housing Zoning Code Update Proposed Draft at a public hearing with the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) on September 14.

Read the minutes of and watch the video of the hearing.

At the conclusion of the hearing, commissioners deferred making a decision until September 27 and asked staff to consider some changes to the BPS proposal.

Staff have released a memo with their response to these suggestions in anticipation of the September 27 work session. The PSC will determine whether to accept the amendments within the memo prior to making their recommendation to City Council.

City Council will hold a public hearing and consider testimony on the PSC Recommended Draft in early November.
