Study Session: Training on the Cost of Development provided by the Urban Land Institute




The purpose of this study session is for the Urban Land Institute (ULI) to provide the Planning Commission information on the factors that contribute to the cost of development projects.



Urban Land Institute will provide the Commission with a presentation designed to increase understanding of financial feasibility of development projects to better inform the Commission’s decision-making. 



The action being considered does not constitute a “project” within the meaning of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15378(b)(45) in that it is an informational report that does not involve any action or recommendation from the Planning Commission or any commitment to any specific project which may result in a potential significant impact on the environment.



The cost for the training is $3,000.00, funds are available in the FY2019/20 Planning Commission Adopted Budget. 


This report has been coordinated with the City Attorney’s Office.
