AB 1196 (Harper) and Contract with Don Schmitz and Associates <br />April 24, 2018 <br />Page 4 <br />d) Declare legislative intent that the City recognizes that Newport Harbor is not an <br />industrial port, nor will it ever be one, but due to its unique characteristics, economic <br />importance, and history, it could have its own PMP. <br />Council Member Dixon and Peotter met on this subject via a conference call with me, Mr. <br />Schmitz and Mr. Henschel on Monday, April 16th. Without taking a formal position on <br />continuing with or stopping this legislative effort, the consensus was to develop and show <br />a matrix that attempts to compare what can be done with a Port Master Plan, a Public <br />Works Plan, and a Master CDP. That matrix will be shown as additional materials when <br />complete. <br />ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW: <br />Staff recommends the City Council find that this action is not subject to the California <br />Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to Sections 15060(c)(2) (the activity will not <br />result in a direct or reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment) <br />and 15060(c)(3) (the activity is not a project as defined in Section 15378) of the CEQA <br />Guidelines, California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Chapter 3, because the adoption of <br />City Council Policy A-3 has no potential for resulting in physical change to the <br />environment, directly or indirectly. <br />NOTICING: <br />This agenda item was noticed according to the Brown Act (72 hours in advance of the <br />meeting at which the City Council considers the item). <br />10-4 <br />
