What is Community ID?
The General Plan Statement of Vision and Plan Strategies encourages growth to reflect the character and scale of the community in which it occurs. General Plan Goal 2.4 promotes the enhancement of the character of existing rural and urban communities, placing an “emphasis on both the natural setting and built design elements which contribute to the quality of life, economic health, and community pride of the County residents.”
Will the community identity process affect allowable uses in a particular community?
Community ID does not change allowable uses. It only relates to the design and form of structures on commercial and multifamily lands. Community Plans and guidelines are required to be adopted by the Board of Supervisors. Project applications deemed complete following the adoption of a Community Plan would be subject to any established standards and guidelines.
Will community identity have any impact on proposed projects?
The General Plan land use map and zoning regulate the type and location of land uses within the County; however, these policies and ordinances do not fully address site design, urban layout and the appearance of the proposed development. General Plan Policy 220.127.116.11 directs the County, in coordination with the residents, to develop community design guidelines for the commercial and multifamily land uses of each community identified in General Plan Policy 18.104.22.168 (Community Regions) and 22.214.171.124 (Rural Centers).
