Article 4.5. Alternative Procedures For A Joint Public Hearing By The Agency And The Legislative Body of California Health And Safety Code >> Division 24. >> Part 1. >> Chapter 4. >> Article 4.5.
As an alternative to the separate public hearings required
by Sections 33348 and 33360 of this part, the agency and the
legislative body, with the consent of both, may hold a joint public
hearing on a redevelopment plan. The presiding officer of the
legislative body shall preside over such joint public hearing.
Prior to such joint public hearing, the agency shall submit
the plan to the planning commission by the same procedure as is
provided in Section 33346, and to the legislative body. The
submission of the plan to the legislative body shall be accompanied
by the report required by Section 33352. Notice of the joint public
hearing shall conform to all requirements prescribed by Sections
33349, 33350, and 33361. The joint public hearing shall thereafter
proceed by the same requirements as are provided in Sections 33360,
33362, 33363, and 33363.5.
After the close of the joint public hearing, the agency may
proceed to approve the plan and submit its approval together with any
recommendations for changes to the legislative body. If the agency
desires to recommend any changes in the plan, such changes shall be
submitted to the planning commission for its report and
recommendation by the same procedure as is provided in Sections 33346
After receipt of the approval and any recommendations for
changes as well as the report and recommendation of the planning
commission of the recommended changes, the legislative body may
proceed to act upon the plan pursuant to Sections 33363.5 to 33375,
When a joint public hearing is held where the legislative
body is also the agency, action to approve and adopt the plan need be
taken only by the legislative body. At the conclusion of the joint
public hearing on the plan, the legislative body may proceed to adopt
the plan pursuant to Sections 33363.5 to 33375, inclusive, with no
further actions necessary by the agency, even as to the
recommendations required of the agency by Section 33363.5.
