  • Rezoning of key sites: In order to create sufficient capacity to meet the Town's housing needs, as determined by the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), the Town will analyze rezoning a number of properties to facilitate future housing development.
  • Bollinger Canyon Rezoning: An updated zoning proposal and new standards are being developed for the Bollinger Valley Study Area. More information is provided below.
  • Environmental Impact Report (EIR): Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) an EIR is being prepared to evaluate the impacts of the changes described above. For more information, click here.

On Tuesday, January 25, 2022 the Town hosted a Bollinger Canyon Community Meeting via Zoom to obtain early input and feedback from residents on re-zoning options for the Bollinger Canyon area which is currently designated a "Study Area."  Zoning determines, among other things, what type and amount of development can be allowed on a parcel.  This project is a Town Council goal and a part of the Comprehensive Advanced Planning Initiative to update the Housing Element, complete an Environmental Impact Report, and Rezone including the Bollinger Canyon Special Study Area.  View the PowerPoint Presentation below.
