The Processes and Procedures Ordinance is part of a larger initiative to comprehensively update the City’s Zoning Code. It aims to create a clear set of administrative procedures for considering and processing requests for Zoning Code entitlements. The Processes and Procedures Ordinance lays the groundwork for a more user-friendly, transparent, and predictable set of zoning regulations.
In December 2022, the City Council adopted Ordinance 187,712, commonly referred to as the Processes and Procedures Ordinance, which is scheduled to be operative beginning January 22, 2024, as established in Ordinance No. 187,930. On September 19, 2023, the City Council approved a proposed ordinance to amend the provisions that regulate development applications and approvals in the City’s coastal zones, as approved by the California Coastal Commission.
A dedicated webpage for Processes and Procedures, which summarizes the upcoming changes in greater detail and provides helpful resources—including the Processes Comparison Table and Fact Sheet—is available at
Revised City Planning application forms reflecting updates from the ordinance are anticipated to be released to the public in December. More information will be provided at a later date.
