Proposed Zoning Code Amendment: Religious Facility Housing

Recent efforts by churches and other faith-based organizations have prompted discussion of affordable housing opportunities on sites with parking lots that are typically underutilized from a land use perspective, such as those owned by religious and faith-based institutions. The City has initiated a Zoning Code Amendment to define regulations related to housing on these properties and conducted outreach in the form of a Planning Commission Study Session (July 2020), City Council Study Session (October 2020), and Virtual Community Workshop (December 2020). See below for next steps in the amendment process.
