Outside of the coastal zone and except as otherwise provided in this Division 7A or by State law. if the requirements of section 16-410L(A) are met, the city shall grant the incentive(s) that are authorized by sections 16-410L(B) and 16-410M unless a written finding, based upon substantial evidence, is made with respect to any of the following, in which case the city may refuse to grant the incentive(s):
(A) The incentive does not result in identifiable and actual cost reductions, consistent with Cal. Gov’t Code, Section 65915(k), to provide for affordable housing costs or for rents for the targeted units to be set as specified in Cal. Gov’t Code, Section 65915(k). (Cal. Gov’t Code, Section 65915(d)(1)(A))
(B) The incentive would have a specific, adverse impact, as defined in Cal. Gov’t Code, Section 65589.5(d)(2), upon the public health and safety or the physical environment or on any real property that is listed in the California Register of Historical Resources and for which there is no feasible method to satisfactorily mitigate or avoid the specific, adverse impact without rendering the development unaffordable to low- and moderate-income households. (Cal. Gov’t Code, Sections 65915(d)(1)(B) and 65915(d)(3))
(C) The incentive would be contrary to State or federal law. (Cal. Gov’t Code, Section 65915(d)(1)(C))
(D) The city finds, based upon substantial evidence, that the community has adequate child care facilities, in which case the additional incentive for a child care facility pursuant to section 16-410M(D) may be denied. (Cal. Gov’t Code, Section 65915(h)(3))
Within the coastal zone, the city shall deny applications for incentives and/or density bonuses if the city finds that the proposed project - with the requested incentive(s), density bonus(es) and/or waiver of development standard(s) - cannot feasibly be accommodated on the site in a manner that is in conformity with the California Coastal Act.
