Our City is currently designing special districts for various areas of our City.
I am concerned with the process being used to set up the districts and wondered what others thought.
The districts being devised will require a General Plan Amendment as they are not in conformance with the land use element as well as many other factors within the City GP. Our development code states any application must be in conformance with the GP to even be presented.
I brought this to the attention of our City Attorney and he addressed the State Statutes but not the Development Code. It is his opinion that the District can be approved with a delayed implementation date and if the GP Amendment fails, the district would be null and void.
Any ideas or comments??
