Public and Institutional Land Uses

Public and institutional uses include governmental offices, hospitals, social services, recreational and cultural facilities, schools and libraries. To effectively serve the public, such uses are located throughout the City.

GOAL:

Provide a variety of public and institutional uses, such as governmental, administrative, recreation, cultural, religious, social services and educational uses that help meet the broader community’s needs and that are designed to be compatible with surrounding neighborhoods, and with the architectural character of the areas in which they are located.

POLICIES:

LU-6.01. Existing and New Uses. We allow the continuation of public recreational, cultural (libraries, museums, etc.), educational, institutional (governmental, police, fire, etc.), and health and social service uses at their locations as of the date of adoption of this General Plan. We also allow the development of new Public and Institutional uses in areas designated as Institutional and in other land use zones where they complement and are compatible with adjacent land uses.
LU-6.02. New Private and Non-profit Uses. We allow new private and non-profit recreation, cultural, educational, institutional, and health and social service uses in areas designated for commercial or business park uses, and other uses as are identified on the Land Use Plan, provided they are compatible with adjacent uses.
LU-6.03. Religious Facilities. We allow for the continuation of existing and development of new religious facilities in any land use zone where they are compatible with adjacent uses.
LU-6.04. Child and Adult Day Care. We allow for the continuation of existing and development of new child and adult day-care facilities in any land use zone where they are compatible with adjacent uses.
LU-6.05. Public Buildings and Sites. We establish standards for City-owned facilities and coordinate with other public agencies to ensure that public buildings and sites are designed to be compatible in scale, mass, character, and architecture with adjacent buildings and to ensure they follow design standards in this General Plan and in the Design Guidelines for the district or neighborhood in which they are located, including the use of landscaped setbacks, walls, and other appropriate elements to mitigate operational and visual impacts on adjacent land uses.
