2015 County of Santa Cruz Housing Element Update N/A Countywide N/A The proposed County of Santa Cruz 2015 Housing Element reports on existing conditions about housing in the unincorporated communities of Santa Cruz County, and establishes community priorities with regard to housing issues.  The Housing Element Update lays the foundation for the policies, programs and projects that would be the focus of housing efforts over the course of the Housing Element  planning period, which for this update is December 31, 2015 through December 31, 2023. The evaluation of available housing sites covers the period of January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2023, which is the Regional Housing Needs Allocation projection period.  The Housing Element is one of the seven required elements of the County's General Plan, the document that guides land use planning and development activities in the unincorporated area.

Amendments to Santa Cruz County Code 7.38.060 and 7.38.080 N/A Countywide N/A

Amend Section 7.38.060 (C) of the County Code, and Section 5.5.17(b) of the General Plan to allow the use of an offsite easement for sewage disposal to allow development of publicly owned facilities on sites not suitable for onsite sewage disposal where such a facility would provide a public benefit.

Amend Section 7.38.080 (C) to extend the time frame for reconstruction from three years to ten years after a calamity.  The minimum parcel size requirements as outlined in Section 7.38.045 and Attachment 2 currently preclude reconstruction after three years on any parcel not meeting the required minimum parcel size. The ordinance amendment would allow reconstruction within 10 years of the date of the calamity. The proposed amendments would go into effect outside of the coastal zone thirty days after adoption by the Board of Supervisors, and within the coastal zone following California Coastal Commission certification.
