Why now, before the General Plan Update?

The City has not adopted a development moratorium that would prohibit the submittal of Planning land use applications proposing development activity. Therefore, the City must respond to all land use applications that have been submitted. The Statewide Permit Streamlining Act (1977) sets forth various time limits for the review of discretionary permit applications, and while some flexibility is allowed, the intent of the regulations is to require that jurisdictions review discretionary permit applications in a timely manner and if not under the Permit Streamlining Act the project could be deemed approved and there would be no discretionary review of the applications.
