BACKGROUND
Pursuant to the Residential Growth Management Program, the RGMP Annual Allocation
Schedule runs with the calendar year from January 1 through December 31. The proposed
annual allocation and annual updates to the program are presented to the City Council by the
Finance Director, Community Development Director and the Director of Public Works/City
Engineer (the RGMP Allocation Recommendation Committee) at the first regularly scheduled
Council meeting of each calendar year to ensure that the program remains flexible and adjusts
to the needs of the community as it evolves. In no case shall the Committee recommend an
annual allocation in excess of 600 units.
The Annual Allocation which may be granted each year is to be consistent with the annual
number of dwelling units necessary to promote the public health, safety and welfare by
maintaining the small town character and quality of life of Brentwood, and its open spaces,
enabling Brentwood to grow at an orderly, well planned and deliberate pace.
The current RGMP, as most recently amended by the Council in October of 2006, sets two
dates for review of allocation applications – the second Council meeting in February and the
second Council meeting in August. The First Annual RGMP Allocation for calendar year 2005
was set at 433 units. A total of four applications and 420 units were allocated in 2005. The
Second Annual RGMP Allocation for calendar year 2006 was set at 400 units. A total of five
applications and 189 units were allocated in 2006.
After review and discussion, the RGMP Allocation Recommendation Committee recommends
that the City Council establish the annual allocation for calendar year 2007 at 451 units, which is
consistent with Alternate “B”, as approved by the Council in October of 2004.
FISCAL IMPACT
There is no fiscal impact associated with Council’s action.
