On June 2, the Cloverdale planning commission voted in favor of the draft urban growth boundary. This is great news because the planning commission took our requests into consideration. Commissioners sent the draft urban growth boundary back to staff to add:
- Language that supports no new development in Rains Creek.
- Stronger language that dictates how the Western Hillside land will be secured, protected, and managed.
- Tighter zoning in the Asti exception area, which could require the existing buildings and uses to remain the same because of their historic importance to the community.
We’ll keep you posted on developments with the urban growth boundary language, but the planning commission’s vote in favor is a big step toward protecting Cloverdale’s character and open space.
Now the City Council has to vote in favor on June 23!
