(Chapter 1007, Statutes of 1981, Government <br />Code Section 65590 et seq) <br />This Council Policy establishes the Administrative Guidelines <br />and Implementation procedures to be used by the City in administering <br />the provisions of the State law referenced above. <br />The City Council of the City of Newport Beach has, by virtue <br />of the adoption of this policy, determined that it is not feasible to <br />require replacement housing units for low and moderate income persons <br />or families for projects involving the conversion or demolition of one <br />or more structures located upon any parcel withi0 the City containing <br />two or fewer residential units. The City Council finds that replacement <br />housing for projects involving two or fewer units is not feasible due <br />to the high cost of land within the City, the limited number of sub- <br />standard housing units that can be rehabilitated, the relatively small <br />profits that flow from projects involving twc/ or fewer residential <br />units, and the negligible impact that such cbnversions or demolitions <br />have on the low and moderate income housingiopportunities within the <br />City. <br />I <br />7 <br />I <br />i <br />GENERAL RULES, <br />1. Exempt Projects <br />This policy shall not apply to the following projects: <br />a:" Projects not located within the Coastal Zone <br />as established pursuant to the Coastal Act <br />iof 1976 and as subsequently amended; <br />b.
