The Planning Commission and City Council met in a joint study session on July 19, 2016 to discuss the Commission’s progress in completing 2016 goals. At the study session, the City Council instructed staff and the Commission to evaluate the Local Street Connectivity standard in LOC 50.06.003.4. This was precipitated when the public benefit of requiring a street connection was raised to the City Council during an appeal hearing for a Minor Partition (LU 15-0040; AP 16-02) on a large undeveloped parcel. Although both the Development Review Commission and City Council found that the code required the connection, the Council expressed interest in having more discretion or flexibility for exempting developments where a connection may serve only a small number of future lots, or allowing a multi-use path in-lieu of a street connection.
