City of Guadalupe Housing Element and MND

Rincon has provided full service staffing of the Planning Department for the City of Guadalupe since 2006. The City has no in-house Planning staff and as such Rincon is responsible for all Planning Department functions and reports directly to the City Administrator. This includes processing of all development applications, long-range planning functions, staffing the Planning Commission, fielding development inquiries and pre-application meeting requests, identifying and implementing process improvements, and assisting the City with prioritizing planning resources and programs. Rincon also provides CEQA compliance services for the City, including the preparation of CEQA exemptions, Negative Declarations, and EIRs or serving as the City contact for EIRs that are outsourced. Rincon has also assisted the City with updating its Planning Application Fees, implemented a Design Review process for certain applications, processed an amendment to the Zoning Code to include a Planned Development Overlay District, and helped establish the Development Review Committee to improve inter-departmental review of planning applications. Rincon has also assisted the City with an update to its Housing Element.
