    COMMUNITY | Camarillo City Council: Upcoming Items for January 8th Meeting

    Camarillo, California – On January 8, 2020, the Camarillo City Council will convene at 5:00 p.m., in the Camarillo City Hall Council Chambers at 601 Carmen Drive, to consider several items of community interest, including but not limited to the following:

    • prohibition of hemp cultivation;
    • new street furniture policy in Old Town;
    • change in City procedures for disconnecting residential water service (SB998);
    • state mandates resulting from the 2019 housing-related legislation;
    • report on growth control measures in the City of Camarillo (SB330); and,
    • cooperative agreement with PVRPD regarding the Senior/Community Center.

    Prohibition of Hemp Cultivation

    (Agenda Item XVIII.A)

    The proposed ordinance would amend the Camarillo Municipal Code to add land use regulations prohibiting the cultivation of hemp within City limits.

    New Street Furniture Policy in Old Town

    (Agenda Item IV.A)

    The following revisions to the Old Town Street Furniture Policy are being proposed:

    • Allow fencing to be secured to the sidewalk;
    • Change the name to Street Furniture Permit;
    • Change the duration of the permit from one year to no limit.

    Change in City Procedures for Disconnecting Residential Water Service

    (Agenda Item VIII.A)

    The State Legislature adopted SB 998, which requires the City to change its procedures for disconnecting residential water service for failure to pay a water charge. The proposed ordinance addresses changes in state law (SB998) and makes other revisions to update Chapter 3.35 to reflect appropriate regulations for water service in the City consistent with current state law.

    State Mandates Resulting from the 2019 Housing-Related Legislation

    (Agenda Item XIX.A)

    Review the 2019 housing bills passed by the State Legislature and signed into law by the Governor, including the bills pertaining to the accessory dwelling unit (ADU) regulations and large in-home daycare facilities, and review the required City actions necessary to comply with these new laws.

    Report on Growth Control Measures in the City of Camarillo | SB330

    (Agenda Item XIX.B)

    On October 9, 2019, Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill 330 (SB 330) into law effective as of January 1, 2020.  Among other limitations on local authority, SB 330 prohibits cities and counties from implementing certain limits on the number of residential permits issued through January 1, 2025.  This Agenda Report summarizes relevant portions of SB 330 and analyzes how SB 330 would affect Measure A (Development Allotment) and Measure J (CURB), two voter-adopted growth control measures in the City of Camarillo.

    Cooperative agreement with PVRPD regarding the Senior/Community Center

    (Agenda Item IX.B)

    Suggested action is to authorize the Mayor to execute the Cooperative Agreement with the Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District for architectural design refinement, CEQA processing, and property assessment survey for the proposed senior and community recreation facility, and appropriate $98,100 from the General Fund Undesignated Fund Balance to the Cultural Arts Services – Community Support budget.

    The City Council will convene at 5:00 p.m. in the Camarillo City Hall Council Chambers at 601 Carmen Drive, Camarillo.
