5 General Plan Every California city and county must have a Planning Commission for political, economic social, physical, (PEPS) needs of their community. The general (or master) plan comprehensive, long range must include provisions for: Land use Congestion and circulation (traffic and water) Housing at all income levels Conservation of natural resources Open space and future growth Noise problems Safety from fire, seismic (earthquake) and geological hazards Public utilities ©2011 Cengage Learning

6 Zoning Example of typical use: Size
Zoning - to preserve property values Example of typical use: A – Agricultural I – Industrial C – Commercial R – Residential Size Minimum area Maximum building coverage of lot Set-back requirements on sides, front and back Parking: Floor area ratio (FAR)-Parking to floor area ©2011 Cengage Learning

Take title to private property Must pay “just” compensation Highways * Parks * Schools CONDEMNATION A court proceeding to “take” private property. Must be for the “public” good and public use. ©2011 Cengage Learning

8 PLANNING TERMS Planning Commission – Appointed citizens advising on land use. Planning Department – Staff who lend technical assistance on land use matters. Zone – Area defined by a boundary line on a map for land-use regulations. Rezoning – Changing land-use regulations on property from one zone to another zone. Variance – Deviation from the zoning regulation on a particular parcel. Conditional use permit – Requirement by government for approval of a permit or division of property. ©2011 Cengage Learning

9 PLANNING TERMS Development Plans – Detail plans of proposed use with plot plan, architectural renderings, acreage, building area, units and parking. Standard Subdivision – A division of property into 5 or more parcels. Lot Split – A division into 2, 3, or 4 parcels. Architectural Review – Special approval based on architectural compatibility to an area. Appeal – The right to request a review of a negative planning commission decision. ©2011 Cengage Learning

10 Zoning Changes Non-conforming – Allows for current property use to be grandfathered in when subsequent zoning changes differ from existing property usage. Variance- ONE individual owner parcel change Conditional use – Existing use may continue, but change in ownership will not allow new owner to continue with existing use. New owner must comply to new zoning requirements to conform to usage. Spot zoning – Small number of owners parcel change, as when end property on a street abuts commercial highway. Down zoning – When less number of units are allowed on a parcel than is currently in use, such as going from R-3 to R-2 usage. Re-zoning- Change in exiting zoning. Requires notice to property owner, and often public hearings for approval. ©2011 Cengage Learning
