Saying the City of Chula Vista must prepare to reduce vulnerability to expected local climate change impacts such as rising sea levels, less rainfall, and hotter weather, a Climate Change Working Group is proposing 11 recommendations for the city council to consider. The Working Group has met since October 2009 to come up with recommendations at the council’s request.
Recommendations include ‘cool paving’ regulations on new parking lots, a shade tree ordinance, additional storm water regulations, and new CEQA land use regulations to address flooding from a rise in sea level.
Chula Vista already has the most stringent energy and climate change regulations is Southern California. A workshop is scheduled for October 7th at Chula Vista City Hall.
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously today to approve the Montecito Ranch Master Planned Community for the Western end of Ramona. Montecito Ranch was a charter member of the BIA’s Project Greenlight, a voluntary, member-driven effort to get development projects approved regionally and to get our members back to work!
Montecito Ranch spans 935 acres and will consist of 417 single-family homes, an 8-acre park and 576 acres of open space. The project spent 12 years in the county’s development services process.
