NOTICE OF CITY COUNCIL PUBLIC HEARING
TIME OF MEETING: 2:00 P.M.
PLACE OF MEETING: COUNCIL CHAMBERS, 12TH FLOOR,
CITY ADMINISTRATION BUILDING,
202 "C" STREET, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
PROJECT TYPE: Municipal Code Amendment/Local Coastal Program Amendment
PROJECT NAME: SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEMS ORDINANCE
APPLICANT: City of San Diego
PLAN AREA: Citywide

FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT
CITY PROJECT MANAGER/PHONE: Amanda Lee at (619) 446-5367 AJohnsonLee@sandiego.gov PLEASE ACCEPT THIS AS A NOTICE TO INFORM YOU, as a property owner, tenant or interested citizen, that the Council of The City of San Diego, California will conduct a public hearing, as part of a scheduled City Council meeting, on the following project:
To consider approval of the proposed solar energy system ordinance amendments to the Land Development Code (LDC) and Local Coastal Program including LDC Chapter 11, Article 2; Chapter 12, Article 9; Chapter 13, Article 1; Chapter 14, Articles 1 and 2; and Chapter 15, Articles 1 and 5.
The proposed amendments implement Assembly Bill 2188 (approved by the Governor on September 21, 2014), which amended the Solar Rights Act of 1978, as subsequently amended in 2004. As a result of the state law change, the City must begin expediting rooftop solar approvals for duplex development in addition to single dwelling unit development. Also, because state law provides for an applicant to appeal the Building Official's decision to Planning Commission, a new customized decision process for small rooftop systems must be created in the code since the staff decision on a construction permit is typically non-appealable. The proposed code changes will bring the City into compliance with state law.
The proposal would create a new separately regulated use category for "solar energy systems" and allow solar energy systems in all base zones as a limited use where they meet specified criteria. This means they would be permitted citywide in accordance with an approved Electrical Permit (or combination Electrical/ Building Permit if the proposal involves a new structure or structural modifications). Per state law, if staff denies the permit for a small residential rooftop solar energy system, the applicant may file an appeal.
The amendments were reviewed for consistency with the certified LDC Environmental Impact Report (EIR) No. 96-0333 and certified General Plan Update Program EIR No. 104495, in accordance with Public Resources Code Section 21166 and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Section 15162. Based on this evaluation, Development Services Department staff determined the project would not result in new impacts or changed circumstances that would require a new environmental document and the previous environmental documents adequately cover these modifications to the LDC.
On June 18, 2015, the Planning Commission recommended approval of the Solar Energy Systems Ordinance (vote 5-0) with the additional request to consider the language suggested by the National Electrical Contractors Association (submitted via letter at Planning Commission) generally requesting that the City not approve an electrical permit unless a California licensed contractor certifies the work will be performed by a state certified electrician, electrical apprentice, or electrical trainee from a registered trainee program in California.
In accordance with state law, following City Council action, the City will be required to submit the ordinance to the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority for a determination that the ordinance is consistent with applicable Airport Land Use Compatibility Plans. The amendments will not be effective until the Airport Authority determines the amendments are consistent with adopted ALUCPs, or the City processes an overrule.
The ordinance is intended to apply within the coastal zone; therefore the City Council's decision requires amending the City's Local Coastal Program. As such, the final decision for areas located within the coastal zone will be with the California Coastal Commission. The City of San Diego will submit the ordinances for certification following City Council and Airport Authority action. The ordinance will not be effective in the coastal zone until the Coastal Commission unconditionally certifies the amendment.
Copies of the draft amendments are available for viewing at the City of San Diego, Development Services Department, 1222 First Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101, 5th Floor. Materials for this item will be posted 72 hours prior to the public hearing with the City Council docket at www.sandiego.gov/city-clerk/
If you wish to be noticed of the Coastal Commission hearing on this issue, prior to the close of the City Council public hearing, you must submit a request in writing to City of San Diego, Development Services Department, 1222 First Avenue, MS-501, San Diego, CA 92101. Attention: Amanda Lee.* Unless otherwise noticed or stated on the record at the hearing, if an ordinance is approved and introduced by the City Council, it will automatically be scheduled for a hearing by the City Council for final passage at 10:00 a.m. on the Tuesday two weeks after the subject hearing.
This item may begin at any time after the time specified. Any interested person may address the City Council to express support or opposition to this issue. Time allotted to each speaker is determined by the Chair and, in general, is limited to three (3) minutes
; moreover, collective testimony by those in support or opposition shall be limited to no more than fifteen (15) minutes total per side
Those unable to attend the hearing may write a letter to the Mayor and City Council, Attention: City Clerk, City Administration Building, 202 "C" Street, San Diego, CA 92101 3862, Mail Station 2A; OR you can reach us by E-mail at: Hearings1@sandiego.gov or FAX: (619) 533-4045
. All communications will be forwarded to the Mayor and Council.

All correspondence should be delivered to the City Clerk (at the above address) to be included in the record of the proceedings
