Security Code Amendments

Project Description 

The City is working on amending the City’s Building Security Code, specifically with respect to parking garage security for multifamily and mixed-use buildings. This amendment would update section 27.54.030 of the Municipal Code to increase flexibility to allow shared or mixed-use parking while providing adequate security measures through security gates, emergency access, and other provisions. 

Project Update 

The draft language for the amendment to section 27.54.030 of the Municipal Code is in progress. A virtual community meeting to obtain community feedback was held on May 25, 2023, please see the meeting materials below. Amendments to this code will require approval by the City Council and a Public Hearing has been tentatively scheduled for July 17, 2023.
