On Tuesday, July 11, 2017, the Santa Barbara City Council will consider a new zoning ordinance for the city. If the council votes to introduce and subsequently adopt the new zoning ordinance (NZO), it will be effective 30 days later—unless the council decides on a later effective date. This means that the NZO could be in effect by late August for most of Santa Barbara. (For projects in the coastal zone, the current zoning regulations will continue to apply until the NZO is certified by the California Coastal Commission, anticipated in late 2018/early 2019.)
