Abstract: The purpose of this final Masters degree project is to provide information that could assist the City of Santa Barbara in deciding how to review its Neighborhood Preservation Ordinance/Single Family Design Guidelines Update (the NPO Update). The NPO Update was an effort to improve the city’s single-family residential housing design review policies and processes. The specific objectives of this project are: • Clarify the review decision problem. • Clarify the objectives of the NPO Update and the objectives of the NPO Update review. • Present possible alternative review topics and approaches and discuss their relative advantages and disadvantages. To address the above objectives, interviews were conducted with key stakeholders in Santa Barbara who were asked their opinions regarding the review. The project is also informed by city documents, relevant academic literature, and my personal experiences working as an intern for the city during a portion of the NPO Update process. This project does not attempt to determine whether the NPO Update has been successful, nor does it suggest changes to the City’s existing NPO policies and practices.
