Orinda Citizens MUST HAVE A VOICE in the City's housing plan

Dear City Council of Orinda, California

Orinda citizens have had no input into the city's housing plan (Housing Element) negotiated between City staff and the state Department of Housing and Community Development, and neither has the City Council. What's worse, the agreement contains concessions and commitments that are not required by state law.


We, the undersigned residents of Orinda, request the City Council do the following:

1) Withdraw the Housing Element sent to the California Department of Housing and Community Development by Orinda staff on June 4, 2013.

2) Only rezone the properties for high-density housing needed to meet state housing mandates--do not redefine all residential multifamily zoning to be high-density.

3) Do not commit to a General Plan update or to rezone downtown for high-density housing, and remove all references to the Downtown Plan.

4) Initiate a public discussion regarding which parcel(s) should be rezoned for high-density housing to meet state mandates. Staff and Council members must disclose any and all communication with developers regarding potential projects on properties considered for rezoning.
