To advance fair housing and address development barriers, Solano, North Shattuck, and College Avenues have been designated as priority commercial and transit corridors in the Housing Element 2023-31. Phase 1 of the Commercial Corridor Zoning Update aims to establish a framework for augmenting housing capacity along these three corridors, with a central focus on fostering equity and inclusion opportunities.
This initiative will additionally set forth clear and objective development standards in compliance with state laws, reassessing the land uses and necessary permits in these areas to promote development along these vital corridors.
Phase 1 of the Commercial Corridor Zoning Update, covering Solano, North Shattuck, and College Avenues, is scheduled to commence in May 2024. The planning process is projected to span approximately two years. City staff anticipates finalizing the draft objective development standards by early 2026.
Subsequently, the standards will be submitted to the Planning Commission for review and recommendation by mid-2026, followed by presentation to the City Council for review and adoption by the conclusion of 2026.
