Preliminary Recommendations for Developing Small Single-Family Lots

DPD’s preliminary recommendations ( were presented on the March 14, 2013 meeting of the City Council’s Planning Land Use and Sustainability Committee (PLUS).  At that meeting, DPD provided PLUS with a preliminary briefing, so that the committee members could provide guidance to DPD on the recommendations memo before it is presented to the public for comment and discussion.

We are asking for your comments on the general direction outlined in the briefing memo. Following this, we will prepare a more detailed proposal, with code language and related environmental review documents; there will be additional opportunity for public involvement at that stage. Please send your comments to:
