Hillside Development Guidelines


The purpose of these Hillside Development Guidelines is to illustrate key design principles and issues which the Planning Commission, and staff will use in evaluating applications for development of any site within those identified Hillside areas of the city. Significant hillside issues include street design, grading, site design, parking, drainage, architecture, landscaping, visual impact, and preservation of natural features. Careful review and study of these issues is necessary to assure attractive developments which are sensitive to the surround environment.

The Guidelines have been prepared to familiarize applicants with site design, architectural design, and landscape design concepts encouraged by the City of Folsom and which will be applied by the Planning Division to evaluate compliance with the Hillside Ordinance.
