Set the date of September 9, 2003 for a workshop at 6:00 p.m. regarding RGMP
and the recommendation to extend the exemption of the Northwest Quadrant
On July 6, 2001, the City Council adopted a Residential Growth Management
Program to provide for the review and evaluation of residential growth in
the City of Brentwood.
On September 18, 2001, the City Council amended Resolution No. 2326, a
Residential Growth Management Program.
On November 26, 2002, the City Council amended Resolution No. 2363 by
approving an extension of time for the exemption to the Residential Growth
Management Program for properties in the northwest area of the City.
On May 27, 2003, the City Council amended Resolution No. 2752 clarifying
that project within the Northwest Quadrant area will have an approved
tentative map by October 6, 2003 and shall be exempt from RGMP.
The City Council approved Resolution 2356, a Residential Growth Management
Program (“RGMP”), in order to moderate the effects of growth and synchronize
residential growth with the necessary infrastructure and municipal safety
As part of the same resolution, the Northwest Quadrant area of the City was
recognized as the key to creating more jobs in the City and as a major
source of retail sales tax.
As the Northwest Quadrant area lacked major infrastructure improvements,
such as storm drainage, sewer, water, and roads, that would benefit the
entire City, this are was given an 18 month exemption from the RGMP that
would stimulate residential development that would help fund the major
infrastructure needed for commercial development in this area.
