Zoning Administrator Resolution No. ZA2017-047 <br />Paqe 2 of 12 <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. The Tentative Parcel Map is <br />for to create two lots and is consistent with all of the requirements of the Class 15 <br />exemption. The proposed parcels are consistent with the land use and zoning <br />designations. The deviation to lot width requires findings to be made to ensure <br />development is consistent with the surrounding pattern of development and that the <br />project will not be detrimental to the neighborhood. The requested lot width is consistent <br />with the width of the majority of lots on Balboa Island and development intensity and <br />density will be the same as approved by the original Balboa Island subdivision on this <br />block. Therefore, the proposed parcel map is consistent with the intent and is eligible for <br />the Class 15 exemption. <br />SECTION 3. REQUIRED FINDINGS. <br />The Zoning Administrator determined in this case that the Tentative Parcel Map is consistent <br />with the legislative intent of Title 21 (Local Coastal Program Implementation Plan) of the <br />Newport Beach Municipal Code and approves the Coastal Development Permit based on the <br />following findings per Section 21.52.015 F. of Title 21: <br />Finding: <br />A.
