UP2019-022 TO EXPAND AN EXISTING FOOD <br />SERVICE, EATING AND DRINKING ESTABLISHMENT WITH A <br />TYPE 47 (ON-SALE GENERAL FOR BONA FIDE PUBLIC EATING <br />PLACE) ALCHOLIC BEVERAGE CONTROL (ABC) LICENSE <br />AND OUTDOOR DINING WITH NO LATE HOURS LOCATED AT <br />3416, 3420, AND 3424 VIA OPORTO (PA2019-057) <br />THE PLANNING COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF NEWPORT BEACH HEREBY FINDS AS <br />FOLLOWS: <br />SECTION 1. STATEMENT OF FACTS. <br />1. An application was filed by Malibu Farm Lido ("Applicant"), with respect to property located <br />at 3416, 3420, and 3424 Via Oporto, and legally described as Parcel 1 of Parcel Map 59- <br />17 ("Property"), requesting approval of a minor use permit. <br />2. The Applicant seeks a minor use permit to expand an existing food service, eating and <br />drinking establishment with a Type 47 (On-Sale General for Bona Fide Public Eating Place) <br />Alcoholic Beverage Control ("ABC") license ("Project"). The existing restaurant is located <br />at 3420 Via Oporto and includes indoor and outdoor areas. The restaurant also operates <br />an existing 624-square-foot, take-out only ice cream and coffee shop located at 3416 Via <br />Oporto. The proposed expansion would convert the existing Malibu Farm retail store at <br />3424 Via Oporto into additional restaurant space. In total, the restaurant will include 3,558 <br />gross square feet of indoor space, 998 gross square feet of outdoor space, and 2,722 <br />square feet of net public area (NPA). No late hours (after 11 p.m.) are proposed. <br />3. The Property is located within the Mixed Use Water Related (MU-W2) Zoning District and <br />the General Plan Land Use Element category is Mixed Use Water Related (MU-W2). <br />4. The Property is located within the Coastal Zone. The Coastal Land Use Plan category is <br />Mixed Use Water Related (MU-W) and it is located within the Mixed Use Water Related <br />(MU-W2) Coastal Zoning District. The Project is exempt from coastal development <br />permitting requirements because there is no increase in floor area or building height <br />proposed. New restaurant uses and conversions (as well as the associated parking <br />requirements) were authorized under Conditional Use Permit No. UP2017-019, which <br />included a parking management plan for Lido Marina Village. Thus, there would be no <br />intensification of use. <br />5. A public hearing was held on December 5, 2019 in the Council Chambers located at 100 <br />Civic Center Drive, Newport Beach, California. A notice of time, place and purpose of the <br />public hearing was given in accordance with the California Government Code Section <br />54950 et seq. ("Ralph M. Brown Act") and Chapter 20.62 of the Newport Beach <br />Municipal Code ("NBMC"). Evidence, both written and oral, was presented to, and <br />considered by, the Planning Commission at this public hearing.
