Community Meeting

Tuesday, August 3, 2010, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

2. Proposed revision to Riverside County Ordinance 578 (Providing for the Establishment of Historic Preservation Districts - countywide). Ordinance revision was initiated by the Board of Supervisors on July 13, 2010, and upon adoption by the Board, expected later this year, it would provide County rules for the formation and administration of the proposed Idyllwild Commercial Core Historic Preservation District. Staff will present the draft revised ordinance to the audience, discuss it in detail, section-by-section, and take audience questions and comments regarding it. (approx. 30 - 45 minutes)

3. Review of Proposed Idyllwild Commercial Core Historic Preservation District: background, proposed boundaries, and purposes (code compliance facilitation, protection of historic village features and ambiance, and encouragement of historic tourism), and potential supporting programs (use of state Historic Building Code, Mills Act, special Ordinance 348 “zoning overlay” parking and landscaping standards, and other programs to facilitate use of historic structures for businesses, residences, and other purposes). (approx. 30 minutes)

4. Anticipated schedule for completion of process to establish historic preservation district, including future community meetings and public meetings/hearings before County Historical Commission, Planning Commission, and Board of Supervisors. (approx. 5 minutes)

5. General questions & answers. (approx. 30 minutes)

6. Other community updates, as available (approx. 10 minutes)
