Housing Element Update

Program 28: CEQA Streamlining

Analyzing the impacts of a project is a valuable part of the development process. However, when not performed correctly, environmental review also adds some additional cost, processing time, and uncertainty for developers.
The County will consider approaches to designing planning documents within urbanized areas near employment and transit, such as TOD specific plans, to allow development with a streamlined environmental review, to the extent possible. The County will also develop tools to facilitate the use of applicable exemptions and streamlining provisions for infill projects and affordable housing projects in CEQA.

Objectives Design planning documents within urbanized areas near employment and transit, such as TOD specific plans, to allow development with a streamlined environmental review, to the extent possible.
By 2014, develop tools to facilitate the use of applicable exemptions and streamlining provisions for infill projects and affordable housing projects in CEQA.
Policies Policy 2.1: Support the development of housing for low and moderate income households and those with special needs near employment and transit.
Policy 2.2: Encourage mixed use developments along major commercial and transportation corridors.
Policy 3.1: Promote mixed income neighborhoods and a diversity of housing types throughout the unincorporated areas to increase housing choices for all economic segments of the population.
