Proposed 2023 Reach Code Update                                                             





That the Planning Commission reviews and comments on the proposed updates to the 2023 Reach Code for development in the City of Hayward.  





Hayward’s current Reach Code will expire on December 31, 2022. To continue the current requirements that prohibit or limit the use of natural gas in new buildings and to continue to require electric vehicle charging infrastructure beyond what is required in the state building code, a new ordinance will need to be adopted. This report presents a framework and considerations for a new Reach Code that may be adopted this year.


Staff is requesting feedback from the Planning Commission on the proposed Reach Code updates and will forward that feedback to Council for their consideration at a future meeting.
