SUBJECT:     PUBLIC HEARING FOR THE CONSIDERATION OF PROPOSED ZONING ORDINANCE AMENDMENTS TO CHAPTERS 18.04, 18.18, 18.20 AND 18.31 OF THE CORTE MADERA MUNICIPAL CODE RELATED TO ACCESSORY DWELLING UNIT AND JUNIOR ACCESSORY DWELLING UNIT REGULATIONS

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Corte Madera Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on proposed zoning ordinance amendments to Chapter 18.04 (Definitions), Chapter 18.18 (Special Purpose Overlay Districts), Chapter 18.20 (Off-street Parking and Loading) and Chapter 18.31 (Accessory Dwelling Units) of the Town of Corte Madera Municipal Code. Given the extent of changes and the desire by staff to reorganize Chapter 18.31, the existing Chapter 18.31 would be repealed and replaced with the new Chapter 18.31. The Planning Commission will consider draft zoning ordinance amendments regarding accessory dwelling unit and junior accessory dwelling unit regulations and may provide a recommendation to the Town Council.  A subsequent public hearing will be held before the Town Council and will be duly noticed in advance of the meeting. The proposed amendments reflect direction from the Planning Commission at their May 14, 2019 and August 13, 2019 public meetings.


The Planning Department recommends that this project is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) under statutory exemption 15282(h) since the proposed ordinance is intended to implement the provisions of Government Code Section 65852.2.
