HCD Accepting Public Comment for Updated Streamlined Ministerial Approval Process Guidelines
April 23, 2020
The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is soliciting public comment on its Draft Streamlined Ministerial Approval Process Guidelines and its Statement of Reason.
The Streamlined Ministerial Approval Process Guidelines were developed pursuant to SB 35 (Wiener, 2017) and established terms, conditions, and procedures for development proponents to submit an application for a development to a locality that is subject to the streamlined, ministerial approval process. The guidelines have been subsequently updated to incorporate new statutory changes passed by the legislature in 2019 and clarifications to the existing language.
The public comment period ends on May 18, 2020. Please email your comments to CAHP@hcd.ca.gov and include “Streamlined Ministerial Approval Process Guidelines Comments” in the subject line.
HCD will be holding a webinar to discuss the updated draft guidelines on May 1, 2020 at 2pm. To join this webinar, please visit this link.
If you have questions, please email: CAHP@hcd.ca.gov.
