This is a model ordinance for the implementation of SB 9 at the local level. While SB 9 does not require jurisdictions to adopt an implementing ordinance, it does permit adoption of one. The model ordinance not only reflects the provisions in the statute, but also indicates a number of "recommended" provisions that are recommended to clarify ambiguities in the statute or assist in enforcement. Lastly, the model ordinance includes "policy" provisions that are optional provisions for local agencies to consider in adopting an implementing ordinance.
