Funding for the state grant comes from the SB 2 (2017) Planning Grants Program. The program’s purpose is to provide funding and technical assistance to local governments to help them implement plans that streamline housing approvals and accelerate housing production. The grant will help Carlsbad examine the rezoning of available parcels, create objective design standards for multi-family housing projects, develop applicable Municipal Code regulations, and conduct other activities as allowed under the law.
