CITY OF NEWPORT BEACH <br />CITY COUNCIL STAFF REPORT <br />Agenda Item No. 21 <br />May 8, 2007 <br />TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL <br />FROM: Planning Department <br />Rosalinh Ung, Associate Planner <br />(949) 644 -3208 <br />rung@city.newport-beach.ca.us <br />SUBJECT: Formation of an Ad Hoc Committee for negotiating the Newport Beach <br />Country Club Development Agreement <br />ISSUE <br />Should the City Council form an ad hoc committee for the consideration of a Development <br />Agreement in conjunction with the Newport Beach Country Club Planned Community <br />Application? <br />RECOMMENDATION <br />1. Adopt Resolution 2007 -_ forming the City Council Ad Hoc Development Agreement <br />Committee. <br />2. Confirm the Mayor's appointment of up to three Council Members. <br />DISCUSSION <br />The Newport Beach Country Club submitted an application for a Planned Community <br />Development Plan, which includes the development of 32 housing units (5 single - family <br />dwelling units and 27 short-term rental units) that would be drawn from the 450 dwelling units <br />allocated for Newport Center in the General Plan. Policy LU 6.14.8 requires the execution of <br />development agreements for residential and mixed -use projects that use this allocation. <br />Development agreements are required to define the improvements and benefits to be <br />contributed by the developer in exchange for the City's commitment for the number, density, <br />and location of the housing units. <br />Staff is seeking guidance from the City Council on the terms and conditions of such an <br />agreement. Staff, therefore, recommends a formation of a short-term ad hoc committee to <br />ensure that adequate public benefits will be provided. The committee members would be <br />appointed by the Mayor and could be comprised of up to three Council Members. <br />
