GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENT SCREENING REQUESTS

If a proposed residential development, that is not a 100% Affordable Housing project, requires a General Plan Land Use Amendment, it must first go through a Screening Review to determine "the overall desirability of considering the project in light of affordability, sustainability, community benefit and other long-term planning goals."

This Screening Review will be done twice a year. Requests must be submitted by June 15th for screening in September or submitted by November 15th for screening in February.

For a more detailed explanation, see COF Fremont's General Plan Amendment Screening Requests
