The Current General Plan Citys first General Plan, adopted 4 years following incorporation Adopted three years prior to Development Code –General Plan Consistency Review Program includes performance-based standards more typically included in Development Code –New General Plan to be more policy-oriented document with specific standards relocated to Development Code
What Weve Heard To Date Residents generally like Calabasas the way it is. Open space preservation and environmental protection are top priorities for the community. Different areas of the City have different characteristics that residents wish to maintain. Infill development is preferable to greenfield development.
Draft General Plan Key Themes Environmental responsibility – preservation/enhancement of natural resources and living within the limits imposed by available resources Community character – protection of Calabasas special character Quality of life – maintaining an outstanding quality of life for Calabasas residents
Factors Creating the Need to Facilitate Some Land Use Changes Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) housing allocations Demand for shopping/retail services Demand for jobs Unmet demand for sports fields
RHNA Requirements Very Low(0-50% MFI) 137 units Low(51-80% MFI) 86 units Moderate(81-120% MFI) 93 units Above Moderate (>120% MFI) 205 units Total 521 units

Shopping/Retail Demand Retail CategoryNew Space Demanded by 2018 (square feet) GAFO + Building/Hardware188,513 Food (supermarkets/liquor)53,944 Eating and Drinking49,663 Services Space (10%)/ Allowance for Vacancy (5%) 46,124 Total338,244 Source: TNDG, June 2007. Demand estimates assume that the City will capture 70% of projected demand.
Office Demand Strong local demand for office space –High proportion of self-employed residents –Affluent, highly educated population –Base of jobs in information and professional services industries –Large proportion of residents with long commutes Demand for 300K – 400K of office space by 2012
Sports Facility Demand According to 2003 survey, 75% of residents believe more sports fields needed To meet demand at buildout of the current General Plan (as identified in Parks and Recreation Master Plan), needs include: –10 soccer fields –1 baseball field –1 softball field Existing school sites can accommodate at least 4 additional soccer fields
Lands Considered for Land Use Designation Changes Lands under Consideration for Designation Changes 260 Total City Acreage8,312 % of Total Acreage under Consideration for Designation Changes 3% Open Space Designated Acres under Consideration for Designation Changes 0
Land Use Breakdown with Changes under Consideration
HM Clustering Purpose is to enhance clustering provisions to increase open space inventory Allow owners to recognize property rights while: –Focusing allowed development in least sensitive areas of sites –Reducing required grading, visual, & biological impacts –Allowing the City to acquire additional lands for designation as permanent open space Reduce minimum lot size – for example, from 10 acres to ½ acre Require minimum open space set aside (9 acres per unit, for example)
Important Things to Remember Projects already approved or in process cannot be reconsidered as part of the General Plan update. The ideas presented are the result of GPAC, public, and City staff input to date. Potential development estimates represent maximum theoretical buildout that is unlikely to ever occur. Current General Plan designations could accommodate additional development as well. No decisions have been made with respect to any policies or land use map changes.
