CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 18

Meeting Date: March 13, 2007

Subject/Title: Continuance of Consideration of an Ordinance of the City of Brentwood amending in part Chapter 17.725 of the City of Brentwood Municipal Code and Ordinance No. 790 relating to the City’s Affordable Housing Program

Prepared by: Ellen Bonneville, Housing Manager

Submitted by: Howard Sword, Community Development Director

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a continuance of this item to the City Council meeting of April 24, 2007.

PREVIOUS ACTION
Ordinance 756 establishing the Affordable Housing Program was adopted by the City Council on September 9, 2003 as recommended by the Planning Commission.

Ordinance 790 amending Chapter 17.725 of the City of Brentwood Municipal Code pertaining to the Affordable Housing Program was adopted by the City Council on December 14, 2004.

Ordinance 790 became effective on January 11, 2005.

The Housing Subcommittee reviewed the proposed amendments to Ordinance 790 and authorized staff to proceed with the necessary Public Hearings at its meeting of October 5, 2006.

On November 21, 2006 the City of Brentwood Planning Commission approved Resolution No. 06-117 recommending that the City Council of the City of Brentwood amend Chapter 17.725 of the City of Brentwood Municipal Code and Ordinance 790 relating to the City’s Affordable Housing Program.

On January 9, 2007 the City Council approved continuance of this item to the meeting of March 13, 2007.

BACKGROUND
Since this item was originally placed on the agenda for consideration at the meeting of January 9, 2007 staff has reviewed the Ordinance for potential changes or revisions. Items have now been identified that need to be refined such as the percentage of the in-lieu fees that are needed for funding the administrative portion of the affordable housing program as well as further refining the process for payment of in-lieu fees for custom lot developments.

Since these changes are considered substantive and the Affordable Housing Ordinance is a zoning ordinance and these revisions are viewed as a zoning ordinance, it becomes necessary to again bring these new revisions to the Planning Commission for its review and recommendation prior to the consideration by the City Council.

In order to provide staff adequate time to finalize the revisions and give adequate public notice for all meetings, staff requests this item be continued to April 24, 2007.

FISCAL IMPACT
No fiscal impact to the affordable housing enterprise fund by continuing the public hearing to April 24, 2007.
