The state is closing in on us. They’re dead set on dismantling local zoning control and dictating to us the terms by which we mind our own business in shaping this community and housing our people. Those with controlling interests in local government are up in arms. Has Sacramento forgotten what cities are for? Or have we? Today, the only way to live on the planet without destroying it is to live in a city. We talk about over-population like it’s somebody else’s baby, and we’d like to forget that the rest of the world spent the last two centuries satisfying our profligate appetites, but we made this bed and, if we’re not living off the land but only on it, we should be living in cities. It’s no surprise that those with a foot in the door cling to advantage, but the next generation will not be living in ranch houses, and no one in local government is planning for their lives in this community. So the state is closing in. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”] Those with local control issues can’t picture the future; they’re consumed by the threat of change. But good planning is not about control. It greets the future with eyes wide open. Good planning is about time, and it’s time for local government to stop playing hide-and-seek with the people of this community, to drop the poker face, fold the bluff hand of improbable housing strategies and irrational codes, and to lose the satisfied grin at watching good people sweat their way through the myopic eye of a needle forged from that basest of metals—self-interest. It’s time for responsible parties to start acting responsibly. The state will need to move in closer still if that is to happen. Last week I described how local governments shift the defense of our General Plan and Zoning Ordinance onto the shoulders of those who build. If the State wants housing, they will need to mandate responsible governance. Municipalities must be prepared to defend their own actions and entitlements at their own expense. If required to put their own money where their mouths are, planning departments would waste no time in minimizing risk. They know how. They’ll make most permits non-discretionary and end the developer’s purgatory of “maybe we’ll like it and maybe we won’t.” Non-discretionary (ministerial) permits cannot be challenged in court under CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act). This will have immediate benefits economically, socially and environmentally. And it will make us honest again. We may even learn to love trees. Our heritage tree ordinance would only include heritage trees, and not everything green that’s growing. Those citizen litigants and their lawyers might balk at stopping the removal of a Eucalyptus or Acacia, or the living Christmas tree your kids planted in the back yard, if their action costs the public a park ranger or arborist. Maybe. To remove political discretion from the process, planners would need to make sense of our zoning ordinance. The old one is a bucket of bolts; better to start with a compact vehicle, one that doesn’t force administrators to insist that five feet is enough, but one inch less a disaster; or vice versa. Rather, we should have a form-based code that loosely defines the general character of a neighborhood or district, and encourages variety and creative expression. We shouldn’t pass the buck to outside consultants who’ll spoon-feed us generic pablum. Instead, planners should study this community to find out what has and hasn’t worked for those who actually live here. In the process, they’ll hopefully re-learn the good kind of discretion, the one that allows a planner or building official to determine that close is close enough and, in so doing, become human again. Our half-century self-indulgence with local control has amounted to little more than an adolescent outburst on the road to civic maturity. Those who remember high school as the best years of their lives will likely continue to relive them, while the rest of us have responsibilities to ourselves and the next generation that can no longer be denied.
