P -1 <br />ADMINISTRATIVE GUIDELINES FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION <br />f OF THE PROVISIONS OF STATE LAW RELATIVE TO <br />LOW AND MODERATE INCOME HOUSING WITHIN THE COASTAL ZONE,. <br />a' <br />BACKGROUND <br />r <br />The City of Newport Beach (hereinafter "City ") "has the <br />responsibility for the administration of provisions of,tate law <br />relative to the demolition and conversion of existin&.4ow and moderate <br />income residential units and construction of new aff ,6rdable housing <br />within the Coastal Zone. (Chapter 1007, Statues off 1981, Government <br />Code Section 65590 et.seq.) 1 <br />This Council Policy establishes the Yministrative Guide- <br />lines and Implementation procedures to be use by the City in adminis- <br />tering the provisions of the State law refer ced above. <br />The City Council of the City of wport Beach has, by virtue <br />of the adoption of this policy, determine that it is not feasible to <br />require replacement housing units for loV and moderate income persons <br />or families for projects involving the &nversion or demolition of one <br />or more structures located upon any pa el within the City containing <br />two or fewer residential units. The y Council finds that replace- <br />ment housing for projects involving tAo or fewer units is not feasible <br />due to the high cost of land within the City, the limited number of <br />substandard housing units that can be rehabilitated, the relatively <br />small profits that flow from projects involving two or fewer residen- <br />tial units, and the negligible impact that such conversions or demo- <br />litions have on the low and moderate income housing opportunities <br />within the City. The City Council intends, by adoption of these <br />guidelines, to provide opportunities for affordable housing in the <br />Coastal Zone, and these guidelines shall be interpreted in a manner <br />which will maximize such housing opportunities. <br />I <br />GENERAL RULES <br />1. Exempt Projects <br />This P/olicy shall not apply to the following projects: <br />a. .,Projects not located within the Coastal Zone as <br />established pursuant to the Coastal Act of 1976 <br />and as subsequently amended; <br />b// The conversion, demolition, or construction of a <br />residential structure on any single parcel which <br />contains two or fewer residential units;
