Public Hearings & Announcements


PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Planning Commission of the City of Rio Vista will consider a recommendation to amend the City’s industrial land use standards and regulations. The proposed amendments would establish more restrictive height limits for portions of the Business Park (B-P) district and would provide more complete lists of allowed uses in the Business Park (B-P), General Manufacturing Industry (M-G) and Industrial Park and/or Industrial (I-P-I) districts. Regular Meeting on April 14, 2021, at 6:00 p.m., in the City Hall Council Chambers, 1 Main Street, Rio Vista, CA.

Project Title: Zoning Code Amendment – Industrial Standards and Uses
Lead Agency Name and Address: City of Rio Vista; 1 Main Street, Rio Vista, Ca 94571
Contact Person and Phone Number: Rob Hickey, City Manager (707) 374-6451 Ext. 1101
Project Location: Various Industrial zoned lands within the City of Rio Vista

The California Environmental Quality Act (Section 21000, et. seq. of the California Public Resources Code, hereafter CEQA) requires analysis of agency approvals of discretionary “projects.” The proposed zoning code amendments would establish development standards and allowed uses consistent with the 2002 Rio Vista General Plan. No changes to land use designations are proposed and the revisions to allowed uses would be consistent and compatible with the General Plan Industrial/Employment District in which these zoning designations are located. The General Plan EIR (SCH No. 2001032079) was certified by the City Council with adoption of the General Plan on July 18, 2002. CEQA Guidelines Section 15183 establishes that projects that are consistent with the development density established by an existing general plan for which an EIR was certified shall not require additional environmental review. Therefore, amendment of the zoning code standards and allowed uses will maintain consistency with adopted general plan standards and is therefore exempt from review under CEQA subject to Section 15183 of the CEQA Guidelines.
