Residential Demolition Ordinance Implementation Report

Demo HouseOn January 18, 2017, the City Council accepted the Residential Demolition Ordinance Implementation Report prepared by the Bureau of Development Services (BDS) and the Development Review Advisory Committee (DRAC). The Report summarizes steps taken to implement the Residential Demolition Ordinance in April of 2015, post-implementation issues and recommendations for changes to the Ordinance. BDS will continue working with the DRAC Demolition Advisory Committee to draft code changes, which will be presented to the City Council for consideration in the next few months. Thanks to all BDS staff and community members who continue to provide their input for this project.
