Reasonable Accommodation: To add a new Chapter 17.84, Reasonable Accommodation, providing a procedure for an applicant to request relief from zoning regulations when necessary to afford disabled persons with an equal opportunity to use and enjoy a dwelling – RZ-13-004

Density Bonuses: To add a new Chapter 17.86, Density Bonuses, to implement the requirements of California Government Code 65915 regarding density bonuses for developments containing affordable and/or senior housing – RZ-13-005
