Article 15. Community Facility District (C-F)

10-2.2.1501 Purpose and Intent.

The purpose of the Community Facility zoning district is to identify those parcels and areas of the City which have existing schools, fire stations, libraries, museums, government buildings, special district facilities, public utility stations, rights-of-way, the Bart station and associated property, and the Civic Arts Theater. The intent is to designate those facilities which are utilized by: 1) special districts, and 2) by and for the public, to distinguish them from the surrounding standard zoning categories. A further intent is to provide the Planning Commission and City Council a means to consider the most appropriate use of a site following discontinuance of a community facility use without the encumbrance of a base district which may or may not provide appropriate regulations for reuse of the site.
