WATERING RESTRICTIONS FOR LAWNS & LANDSCAPE REGULATIONS
Due to the current drought conditions, the City of San Fernando implemented a restricted watering schedule. Effective October 16, 2022, all homes that end in an odd number may water their lawns (10 minutes per station) on Mondays. All homes that end in an even number may water their lawns on Tuesdays. Watering of plants, gardens, and trees can continue using hand-watering methods and drip irrigation systems.

The City is also exploring modification to front yard landscape standards to encourage replacement of lawns with drought-tolerant landscape. Modification to the landscape standards will provide flexibility for property owners to change their front yard landscape and to take advantage of the Turf Replacement Program currently offered by Metropolitan Water District (MWD). 

For more information on the Turf Replacement Program, please visit BeWaterWise.com/Turf-Replacement-Program or call (888) 376-3314.

As the City explores modification to front yard landscape regulations, the City encourages community members to email suggestions or photographs of desirable front yard landscapes that you would like to see in San Fernando to CommunityDevelopment@sfcity.org.

COYOTE MANAGEMENT AND CO-EXISTENCE PLAN AND FENCE AND WALL REGULATIONS
On August 15, 2022, the City Council adopted a Coyote Management and Co-Existence Plan that includes best management practices and strategies for managing coyotes in the City. A mailer providing valuable information was sent to all residents in September 2022. The Coyote Management and Co-Existence Plan also includes a recommendation to consider revising the height limits for fences and walls on residential properties. 
 
On November 14, 2022, a discussion of potential changes to the maximum height and/or design for fences and walls in residential properties were be presented to the Planning and Preservation Commission and an updated of the Commission discussion will be presented to the City Council in January 2022. Please email any questions or concerns to CommunityDevelopment@sfcity.org.

TRANSITION TO PERMANENT OUTDOOR DINING
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the City allowed for an expanded outdoor dining program through the City’s local emergency powers as a temporary program to help owners of local food establishments that were adversely impacted by the pandemic. The program allowed for outdoor dining areas in the public right-of-way and on private property without requiring most of the regulations in the Zoning Code. This program has helped many local businesses keep their doors open, and helped introduce a new vibrancy into our commercial corridors at a time when many of these areas are suffering from the impacts of the pandemic. 
 
The success of the program has resulted in a desire to establish a permanent outdoor dining program that will reimagine outdoor dining regulations in the Zoning Code to allow for expanded and streamlined outdoor dining provisions on private property and public sidewalk. This effort will help transition temporary pandemic-response outdoor dining spaces to dynamic, permanent outdoor dining spaces to support our business community, and create vibrant and attractive commercial corridors. Current efforts are underway and the City encourages community members to email suggestions or photographs of desirable outdoor dining activities that you would like to see in San Fernando to CommunityDevelopment@sfcity.org
SENATE BILL 9 (SB 9)
The City is studying whether there are other standards that better balance the limitations of Senate Bill 9 (SB 9) with the City’s objectives for ensuring that residential development in the City is properly managed in the best interests of the public health, safety, and welfare.  SB 9 allows a single-family lot to be subdivided into two lots and development of two-residential units per lot. 

An Interim Urgency Ordinance was adopted on January 18, 2022 that includes a set of restrictive temporary regulations to minimize the initial impact of SB 9 and to help preserve the character of single-family residential neighborhoods, while allowing the City to establish permanent regulations. The Interim Urgency Ordinance No. U-1706 is due to expire on January 19, 2023.

On November 14, 2022, a draft regulations for implementing SB 9 were presented to the Planning and Preservation Commission for discussion to replace the Urgency Ordinance. A revised draft of the regulations incorporating recommendations from the Planning and Preservation Commission was presented to the Commission at a Special Meeting on December 19, 2022 for recommendation to City Council.
