Construction Timing Ordinance

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 3/8/2016


At 9 a.m., the Board will conduct an informational workshop regarding a construction timing ordinance. At a later date, the Board will consider an ordinance establishing time limits on construction projects to ensure projects are completed within reasonable time frames set forth by the Community Development Agency (CDA). While many residents accept the temporary nuisance of construction activity in their neighborhoods, prolonged periods of construction can affect quality of life. Building permits are normally valid for two years. Should the Board wish to consider adoption of a construction time limit ordinance, staff recommends that a Board subcommittee be formed to work with CDA staff and County Counsel to further review the concept and prepare a draft ordinance.


The Board conducted the workshop. No formal action was taken, although the Supervisors expressed interest in starting work on an ordinance and forming a subcommittee.
