Public Comments <br /> <br /> <br />STAFF RECOMMENDATION <br />Staff recommends that the Planning Commission review, consider, and provide a <br />recommendation for adoption of the Objective Design Standards (ODS) for the Housing <br />Element Sites and for the Residential-Multifamily (R-M), Central-Commercial (CC), and <br />Mixed-Use Zoning Districts, to correspond with adoption of the 6th Cycle Housing Element. <br />EXECUTIVE SUMMARY <br />The City of Pleasanton is updating existing design guideline documents relevant to residential <br />development such that they provide objective standards, in response to recent changes in <br />State law that seek to streamline and increase housing production. These changes are <br />focused on making approval processes more routine and predictable for developers by <br />creating objective standards in lieu of more discretionary or subjective review procedures. The <br />objective standards enclosed with this agenda report are, in two separate documents, those <br />that apply to the Draft 6th Cycle Housing Element sites (and those that have been carried over <br />from the 4th Cycle Housing Element), and those that apply to multifamily or mixed-use <br />development in the R-M, C-C, and M-U Districts.
