Greetings All:
This email is to inform you that the Hillside Area Amendment (CPC-2008-4683-CA; Council File No. 09-1390) will be on the Planning & Land Use Management Committee Meeting agenda (item No. 3) on Tuesday, June 16, 2009 at 2:00 PM.  I have attached a copy of the agenda to this email.  Just as a reminder, the staff report and other related documents have been posted on our Department website (; they are too large to attach to this email.  To download these files, please go to our home page and click on "Plans & Ordinances" on the left side, then click on "Proposed Ordinances"; or click on the direct-links provided below:
Note: The file linked above is large and may take some extra time to download.  The map contains parcel lines for the entire city in order to allow the general public to zoom into their neighborhoods and determine whether their property will remain within the proposed Hillside Area boundaries, or if the designation is proposed for removal.  Instructions for how to use this map more effectively can be found on the link below.
Let me know if you have any questions about these documents.
Baseline Hillside Ordinance Update
We received a lot of additional comments during the extended comment period for early input.  It took us some time, but we have read them all and have summarized the new comments which were not already expressed at the February 2009 Hillside Kick-Off Meetings on the attached document.  Feel free to download the document and distribute it to anyone who may be interested.  If you do not have a copy of the summary of the first set of comments please contact me and I will send you the file.
We are currently incorporating these new comments into the list of objectives that we developed from the first set.  We are also in the beginning stages of developing proposed solutions based on these comments and objectives.  When we have something new to report, we will distribute it to the individuals on the hillside interest list.  If anyone needs to be added to this list, please send me an email with contact information.
