What is the RDCS Update Working Group?

As part of the Morgan Hill 2035 project, the City is undertaking an update to the Residential Development Control System (RDCS), the system that manages the pace and quality of residential development in Morgan Hill. The RDCS Update provides an opportunity to simplify implementation of the growth management program while maintaining the goals for the ultimate size of the community, the pace and quality of development, and diversity of housing types desired by the community. On May 6, 2015, the City Council appointed an RDCS Update Working Group. The purpose of the Working Group is to provide input to City staff and consultants on how best to modify the RDCS as part of the Morgan Hill 2035 project.

The Working Group will meet as follows:
