ORDINANCE NO. 3779

ORDINANCE OF THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SANTA ROSA AMENDING CHAPTER 20 OF THE SANTA ROSA CITY CODE - RECLASSIFICATION OF PROPERTY LOCATED AT 1715 AND 1801 RIDLEY AVENUE, FILE NUMBER MJP03-026

THE PEOPLE OF THE CITY OF SANTA ROSA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

Section 1. The Council finds, based on the evidence and records presented, that the reclassification to the R-1-6 District is appropriate for the property identified in Section 3 due to subject property's physical characteristics and its relationship to surrounding properties.

The Council further finds and determines that the reclassification of the subject property at 1801 Ridley Avenue from the RR-20 (Rural Residential) District to the R-1-6 (Single Family Residential) District and that the reclassification of the subject property at 1715 Ridley Avenue from the RR-20 (Rural Residential) to the R-3-18 (Multiple Family Residential) District is consistent with the Santa Rosa General Plan in that:

1.  Foster a compact rather than a scattered development pattern.

2.  Promote livable neighborhoods.  Ensure that everyday shopping, park and recreation facilities, and schools are within easy walking distance of most residents.

3. Maintain a balance of various housing types in each neighborhood and ensure that new development does not result in undue concentration of a single housing type in any one neighborhood. Downtown is excepted.

4. Foster design residential neighborhoods to be safe, human-scaled, and livable. 

Section 2. All conditions required by law having been satisfied and all findings with relation thereto having been made, Chapter 20 of the Santa Rosa City Code is amended by amending the "Zoning Map of the City of Santa Rosa," as described in Section 20-20.020, so as to change the classification of Assessor=s Parcel Number 036-091-051 to the R-1-6 District and Assessor Parcel Number 036-101-016 to the R-3-18 District.

In addition to any other conditions that are deemed appropriate or necessary at the time a use permit or other development permit is applied for, any development approval for this property shall be expressly conditioned to require the applicant to fulfill the applicable conditions, including:

Any sewer connections for this development, or any part thereof, will be allowed only in accordance with the requirements of the California Regional Water Quality Control Board, North Coast Region, in effect at the time, or thereafter, that the building permit(s) for this development, or any part thereof, are issued.
 
Section 3. This ordinance shall take effect on the 31st day following its adoption.
