Section 1211.07    Review And Monitoring

  1. Annual Allocation Review
    The City Manager shall, at least on an annual basis, review the rate, amount, and
    location of residential development in the City, monitor the impacts of such
    development, and determine whether such development is in accord with the policies
    and goals of the 2004 Comprehensive Plan.

    1. Content of Review Report. The annual review report by the City Manager
      shall include, at a minimum, projected municipal revenues and expenditures in
      the coming year, progress in providing necessary infrastructure and services to
      cure existing deficiencies and serve new development, job growth and
      accompanying income tax revenues, data indicating the number of residential
      dwelling units allocated by type and location during the prior year, any current
      reservations for future development, a recommendation regarding a preferred
      residential development allocation for the next annual allocation period, and
      proposals for procedural or substantive changes to improve the administration
      and operation of this Chapter. In addition, the report may include other data
      and information that the City Manager determines would be relevant to the
      Planning Commission and the City Council in establishing an annual allocation
      for the following allocation year.

    2. Submission of Review Report. The City Manager shall submit the review
      report to the Planning Commission no later than April 1 of each allocation

      year or at such earlier times as the City Manager deems appropriate in light
      of the level of residential development in the community, capacity of
      infrastructure, and projected municipal revenues and expenses. Within
      fourteen (14) days after receipt of the report, the Planning Commission shall
      hold a public hearing to take testimony on the recommendations of the City
      Manager. Within fourteen (14) days after the conclusion of the hearing, the
      Planning Commission shall make a recommendation to the City Council to
      establish a residential development allocation for the next annual allocation
      period.

    3. City Council Action. Prior to adoption of an annual residential development
      allocation, the City Council shall hold a public hearing at which comments on
      the review report and recommended allocation are solicited from the City
      Manager, the Planning Commission, and public-at-large. By June 15 of each
      year, the City Council shall establish a residential development allocation for
      the next annual allocation period.

  2. Expiration of Allotment
    An allotment granted pursuant to this Chapter shall be valid for two years from the date
    it is awarded. An allotment for a residential unit for which construction has not begun
    within two years of such award shall automatically expire.

    1. If construction of a residential unit for which an allotment has been awarded
      has not commenced within two years of such award, the owner shall be
      required to secure a new allotment to construct a residential unit.

    2. The number of allotments that have expired in any one year shall be considered
      in establishing the next annual allocation.
