ACTION ITEMS

  1. The San Rafael Planning Commission will meet to consider an ordinance amending Titles 2, 14 and 15 of the San Rafael Municipal Code to eliminate the Design Review Board and transfer existing duties of the Design Review Board to other decisionmakers. The Planning Commission will make a recommendation to the City Council regarding the ordinance.

Environmental Review: Staff finds that this project is exempt from the provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), pursuant to Section 15061(b)(3) of the CEQA Guidelines, because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility the adoption of this Ordinance may have a significant effect on the environment, and pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15378(b)(5) because the dissolution of the Design Review Board and reassignment of its responsibilities to the Planning Commission or Director is an organizational/administrative activity that will not result in direct or indirect physical changes in the environment.
