Galt Zoning Ordinance Update
Raney worked with City staff to form an Ad-Hoc Committee and conduct public workshops to solicit the public's input on the preparation of the City's Development Code Update.
The City’s current Zoning Ordinance was initially adopted in 2008 and has been updated with various amendments over time. The City also adopted a 2030 General Plan in 2009. Raney, under contract with the City, prepared the Development Code Update consistent with the 2030 General Plan. Tasks included updating the existing noise and parking ordinances; creating new landscape and sign ordinances, as well as mixed-use development standards; and creating a new zone consistent with the development standards from the Downtown Revitalization and Historic Preservation Specific Plan. Raney assisted City staff in forming an Ad-Hoc Committee and conducted a series of public workshops to solicit public input, conduct policy discussion, and develop a user-friendly format for the Development Code. Raney also prepared the Initial Study for adoption along with approval of the Development Code.
