Ordinance No. 2022-1091 amending the text of the Land Use Element and amending the Land Use Diagram of the General Plan (GPA 2022-02) and finding that GPA 2022-02 is subject to a vote of the electorate of the City of Yorba Linda under the Yorba Linda Right-to-Vote Initiative; 3.) Ordinance No. 2022-1092 amending the Zoning Code (ZCA 2022-01) and finding that ZCA 2022-01 is not subject to a vote of the electorate of the City of Yorba Linda under the Yorba Linda Right-to-Vote Initiative; and 4.)

The City Council voted to proceed with a Measure B ballot measure on General Plan and Zoning Code amendments on November 8, 2022, for some housing sites identified in the Housing Element, but defer action on other sites. This option would allow the City to comply with the timeline from Program 8 of its certified Housing Element, but would take advantage of the time extension allowed through SB 197 to allow staff time to see if there are any additional sites that could be added to the Housing Sites Inventory to reduce the number of units assigned to the deferred sites. The City Council’s also included the requirement of a hydrology study for the Fairmont site if a project were to come forward.  
     
    The meeting adjourned at 11:31 p.m. to an adjourned regular meeting of the City Council/Successor Agency to the Yorba Linda Redevelopment Agency joint meeting on August 9, 2022 at 6:30 p.m.
