NP2019-015 FOR TWO-UNIT RESIDENTIAL <br />CONDOMINIUM PURPOSES LOCATED AT 611 JASMINE <br />AVENUE (PA2019-254) <br /> <br />THE ZONING ADMINISTRATOR OF THE CITY OF NEWPORT BEACH HEREBY FINDS AS <br />FOLLOWS: <br /> <br />SECTION 1. STATEMENT OF FACTS. <br /> <br />1. An application was filed by 611 Jasmine, LLC, a California limited liability company <br />(Applicant), with respect to property located at 611 Jasmine Avenue, and legally described <br />as Lot 11, Block 636 of the Corona Del Mar Tract, requesting approval of a tentative <br />parcel map. <br /> <br />2. The applicant proposes a tentative parcel map for residential condominium purposes. No <br />waivers of development standards are requested. The project site has been cleared of <br />existing improvements and a new duplex is under construction. The Tentative Parcel Map <br />would allow each unit to be sold individually. No waivers of Title 19 (Subdivisions) are <br />proposed. <br /> <br />3. The subject property is designated RT (Two-Unit Residential) by the General Plan Land <br />Use Element and is located within the R-2 (Two-Unit Residential) Zoning District. <br /> <br />4. The subject property is not located within the coastal zone; therefore, a coastal <br />development permit is not required. <br /> <br />5. A public hearing was held on January 30, 2020, in the Corona del Mar Conference Room <br />(Bay E-1st Floor) at 100 Civic Center Drive, Newport Beach. A notice of time, place and <br />purpose of the hearing was given in accordance with the Newport Beach Municipal <br />Code. Evidence, both written and oral, was presented to, and considered by, the Zoning <br />Administrator at this hearing. <br /> <br />SECTION 2. CALIFORNIA ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY ACT DETERMINATION. <br /> <br />1. This project is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to <br />Section 15315 under Class 15 (Minor Land Divisions) of the CEQA Guidelines, because it <br />has no potential to have a significant effect on the environment. <br /> <br />2. The Class 15 exemption allows the division of property in urbanized areas zoned for <br />residential, commercial, or industrial use into four or fewer parcels when the division is <br />in conformance with the General Plan and zoning, no variances or exceptions are <br />required, all services and access to the proposed parcels are available, the parcel was <br />not involved in a division of a larger parcel within the previous two years, and the parcel <br />does not have an average slope greater than 20 percent. Therefore, the proposed parcel <br />map is eligible for the Class 15 exemption.
