March 14, 2014 – Proposed Ordinance – Design and Site Development Review
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT a Public Hearing will be held by the Los Banos Planning Commission to consider and make a recommendation to the Los Banos City Council to adopt a proposed ordinance to establish a process by which certain types of development projects and structures shall be subject to a comprehensive discretionary review approval process before the City’s Planning Commission concerning site development and architecture review. The City intends to use this process to improve
the aesthetic character of the community, to preserve and enhance property values, protect adjacent properties from adverse impacts caused by development projects, to assist private and public developers to be more cognizant of public concerns for the aesthetics of projects, and to bring about a community that is livable, safe, functional and attractive. The proposed ordinance will establish the duties and responsibilities of the project review board; an architectural advisory committee; and the planning commission in evaluating development projects in the City of Los Banos.
A PUBLIC HEARING on this matter will be held at the next scheduled meeting of the Los Banos Planning Commission on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers of Los Banos City Hall located at 520 “J” Street.
