    16.    
City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 12/11/2018  

SUBJECT:
RE-ADOPT ORDINANCE ESTABLISHING TIME LIMITS FOR THE USE OF RESIDENTIAL DESIGN REVIEW APPROVALS
 
RECOMMENDATION:
Re-adopt an Ordinance entitled: An Ordinance of the City Council of the City of Chino Hills, California, Amending Title 16 of the Chino Hills Municipal Code, Chapter 16.10 Residential Districts and Chapter 16.20 Planned Development District to Establish Time Limits for the Use of Residential Design Review Approvals and Finding Proposed Municipal Code Amendment 18MCA04 Exempt From Review Under the California Environmental Quality Act
BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS:
This ordinance is being brought back for adoption due an error of publishing in the Chino Hills Champion (Champion) newspaper.  The ordinance was introduced at the October 23, 2018, City Council meeting and adopted at the regular City Council meeting held on November 13, 2018, by an unanimous vote.  Following that meeting, the City Clerk's office sent an ordinance summary to the Champion to be published on Saturday, November 17, 2018, which was within the fifteen (15) day requirement for publication in accordance with California law.  On November 17th, the Champion published another ordinance twice instead of this Design Review Approvals ordinance as requested.  Due to this error, the ordinance was not published in time to meet the State publication requirements.  In order to be in compliance with the posting requirements, it is being brought back to Council to re-adopt and to be published in the Champion the following Saturday.  This error causes a two week delay in the effective date that would have originally occurred.
ENVIRONMENTAL (CEQA) REVIEW:
In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (California Public Resources Code §§ 21000, et seq., "CEQA") and CEQA regulations (14 California Code of Regulations §§ 15000, et seq.), the proposed Ordinance has been determined to be exempt from CEQA for the following reasons: (1) it will not result in a direct or reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment (14 Cal. Code Regs. § 15060(c)(2)), (2) there is no possibility that the ordinance may have a significant effect on the environment (14 Cal. Code Regs. § 15061(b)(3)), and (3) the Ordinance does not constitute a "project" as defined in the CEQA Guidelines (14 Cal. Code Regs. § 15378)
 
FISCAL IMPACT:
There is no fiscal impact associated with the adoption of this Ordinance.
