(Grayson D) Planning and zoning: general plan: zoning ordinance: conflicts.
Current Text: Amended: 4/11/2023
Status: 4/12/2023-Re-referred to Com. on L. GOV.
Summary: Existing law, the Planning and Zoning Law, requires each county and city to adopt a comprehensive, long-term general plan for the physical development of the county or city, and of certain land outside its boundaries. Existing law requires that county or city zoning ordinances be consistent with the general plan of the county or city by January 1, 1974. Existing law requires a zoning ordinance to be amended within a reasonable time so that it is consistent with the general plan in the event that the ordinance becomes inconsistent with the plan by reason of amendment to the plan. Existing law authorizes any resident or property owner to bring an action or proceeding in the superior court to enforce compliance with these provisions within 90 days of the enactment of any new zoning ordinance or the amendment of any existing zoning ordinance.
This bill would additionally authorize any resident or property owner to bring an action or proceeding in the superior court to enforce compliance with these provisions within 90 days of the failure of a local agency to amend a zoning ordinance within a reasonable time of the zoning ordinance becoming inconsistent with the general plan due to amendment to the plan or to any element of the plan. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.
