Interim Development Control Ordinance (IDCO): On March 31, 2015, with a 5-0 vote, the Burbank City Council adopted interim development controls for properties zoned R-1 (Single Family Residential) and R-1-H (Single Family–Horse keeping). The changes will affect your ability to expand, remodel, or build a new home. Some of the interim changes include modifications to how Floor Area Ratio (FAR) is calculated (some things that previously were not counted toward FAR now are), and changes to the minimum setbacks for second story additions and front yard setbacks for one and two story homes. The IDCO is effective March 10, 2015. The IDCO includes some exemptions for projects that were already in the pipeline prior to March 10th as well as a provision for people to appeal to the City Council to be allowed to submit plans under the existing development standards.

If you have questions about how the IDCO will affect your plans to expand, remodel, or build a new home or if you believe the City Council should consider an appeal from you to allow your home to be built according to the standards in affect prior to March 10, please call (818) 238-5250 and ask to speak to the planner of the day.
The IDCO will be in effect for 45 days. On May 5, 2015 the City Council will determine whether or not to extend or modify the IDCO.
