Variance — Planning

Variances are provided for in the Development Code and State Law to allow flexibility of development standards where the strict application of a regulation may not be appropriate. According to State Law, the justification for a Variance is that you as a property owner would suffer a unique hardship if the development standard as specified in the Development Code were strictly applied.   Prior to approving a variance, the reviewing authority must be able to make the following findings:

  1. The granting of such variance will not be materially detrimental to other properties or land uses in the area and will not substantially interfere with the present or future ability to use solar energy systems.
  2. There are exceptional or extraordinary circumstances or conditions applicable to the property or to the intended use that do not apply to other properties in the same district or vicinity.
  3. The strict application of the land use district deprives such property of privileges enjoyed by other properties in the vicinity or in the same land use district.
  4. The granting of the variance is compatible with the objectives, policies, general land uses and programs specified in the County General Plan and any applicable plan.

Transportation Ad Hoc Fees (Traffic Impacts Mitigation) — Public Works

The County Board of Supervisors adopted a series of local fee plans and a regional plan to generate funds for road improvements within adopted fee plan areas to mitigate impacts from development. Funds generated by the Local Area Plans are used to construct and improve transportation facilities within the Plan area boundaries. These may include roads, traffic signals, bridges, and railroad crossings. The regional fee plan generates funding for freeway interchange improvements, widening of major arterial roads, installation of traffic signals, and construction of railroad grade separations. The amount of the fee is calculated based on projections of future development in the area and the projected increase in traffic.  Some projects may be located within both a local fee plan area and a regional fee plan sphere and will require payment of two separate fees for road improvements.
