18-0193 115.2Resilient City Development MeasuresCC- Public HearingPUBLIC HEARING - RESILIENT CITY DEVELOPMENT MEASURES BACKGROUND: Beginning on the evening of October 8, 2017, and continuing for days thereafter, a series of wildfire events damaged or destroyed thousands of residential and commercial structures within the City of Santa Rosa. On October 9, 2017, the City Manager, in his capacity as Director of Emergency Services, proclaimed the existence of local emergency in the City, which proclamation was ratified by the City Council on October 13, 2017. Prior to the wildfires, the Council had identified “housing for all” as a priority due to the City’s ongoing, unmet housing needs. As a result of both the devastation of the wildfires and the previously existing significant shortage of housing, the Council has stated the need for immediate measures to address both housing and the rebuilding of uses such as lodging and childcare facilities Citywide. The proposed Resilient City Development Measures were prepared to facilitate these priorities. The draft ordinance was unanimously recommended for approval, with minor changes, by the Planning Cto waive reading of the text and introduce as amendedPass Action details Video Video
