Objective Design Standards


Photo 3The City of Marina is preparing Objective Design Standards (ODS) to help bring the City into compliance with State Senate Bill (SB 330) which requires individual jurisdictions to establish a clear and impartial approval process for all housing projects. 

With assistance from our consultant, Raimi+Associates, the City is engaging with local designers and architects, for-profit and non-profit housing developers, and the general public to get an idea of what types of objective design standards (building height, bulk and massing, articulation, and site context) the community would like to see in the development of multi-family, mixed-use, and single-family (with more than 1 unit) buildings.

Please continue to check in here for opportunities to provide feedback. You can always email Sr. Planner, Alyson Hunter, at ahunter@cityofmarina.org with any questions or comments relating to this effort.
