�EWPpRT <br /> p� e CITY OF NEWPORT BEACH <br /> PLANNING COMMISSION STAFF REPORT <br /> r+� = October 17, 2019 <br /> C,��00.NP Agenda Item No. 4 <br /> SUBJECT: Cottage Preservation Code and LCP Amendments (PA2019-181) <br /> ■ Code Amendment No. CA2019-006 <br /> ■ Local Coastal Program Amendment No. LC2019-004 <br /> SITE LOCATION: Citywide <br /> APPLICANT: City of Newport Beach <br /> PLANNER: Jaime Murillo, Principal Planner <br /> 949-644-3209 orjmurillo@newportbeachca.gov <br /> PROJECT SUMMARY <br /> The City is proposing amendments to the Local Coastal Program (Coastal Land Use Plan <br /> and Implementation Plan), Newport Beach Municipal Code (NBMC) Title 20 (Planning and <br /> Zoning), and Title 15 (Building and Construction)to provide an option to preserve traditional <br /> beach cottages. Typically, cottages do not provide all the code-required parking and <br /> additions are limited to 10 percent of the existing floor area. The amendments would allow <br /> larger additions of up to 50 percent of the existing floor area without providing the <br /> minimum code-required parking when the project would result in the preservation of the <br /> cottage character and building envelope that is representative of traditional development <br /> patterns in the City. Eligible projects would also receive relief from a building code <br /> valuation threshold requiring building code compliance as new construction. <br /> RECOMMENDATION <br /> 1) Conduct a public hearing; <br /> 2) Find this project exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) <br /> pursuant to Section 21065 of CEQA and State CEQA Guidelines Sections 15060 <br /> (c)(2), 15060 (c)(3), and 15378. The proposed action is also exempt pursuant to State <br /> CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3) because it has no potential to have a <br /> significant effect on the environment; <br /> 3) Adopt Resolution No. PC2019-033 (Attachment No. PC 1) recommending the City <br /> Council approve Code Amendment No. CA2019-006; and <br /> 4) Adopt Resolution No. PC2019-034 (Attachment No. PC 2) recommending the City <br /> Council authorize staff to submit Local Coastal Program Amendment No. LC2019- <br /> 004 to the California Coastal Commission. <br /> 1 <br />
