Calabasas : Officials Seek Input on Development Code

The city of Calabasas is seeking input from the public on its first-ever development code, which is being drafted and which officials said is expected to be completed sometime next year.

A round of public hearings will begin in October on various aspects of the plan, officials said. On Oct. 12, a hearing will be held on parking and housing construction issues in Old Topanga Canyon and the Calabasas Highlands. Topics on the latter area will include septic system installation, lot- and house-size specifications, grading and design regulations.

All hearings will be at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall, 26135 Mureau Road.

An Oct. 26 hearing has been scheduled on the kind of signage to allow in the city, which incorporated in 1991. A hearing has been tentatively set for Oct. 25 to discuss traffic regulation and landscaping and beautification issues in the Las Virgenes Corridor.

The development code, city officials said, is designed to implement policies established by the city's first-ever General Plan, approved over the summer by the City Council. The plan offers broad guidelines, while the code sets up specific regulations to implement those policy guidelines.
