PUBLIC HEARING ITEMS <br /> <br />ITEM NO. 1 4020 Channel Place Coastal Development Permit No. CD2017-045 (PA2017-101) <br /> Site Location: 4020 Channel Place Council District 1 <br /> <br />David Lee, Planning Technician, provided a brief project description stating the property is located in a <br />residential zoning district and a coastal zoning district. A construction pollution prevention plan was prepared <br />to minimize pollution and run-off into coastal waters during demolition. The project site will not affect public <br />recreation, access, or views. The coastal development permit is for demolition only. A separate coastal <br />development permit will be required for future development on the lot. <br /> <br />Applicant Joe Foster stated that he had reviewed the draft resolution and agrees with all of the required <br />conditions. <br /> <br />The Zoning Administrator opened the public hearing. Seeing that no one from the public wished to comment, <br />the public hearing was closed. <br /> <br />Action: Approved <br /> <br /> <br />ITEM NO. 2 Balboa Island Seawall Improvements No. CD2017-033 (PA2017-078) <br /> Site Location: North and South Bay Front, Balboa Island Council District 5 <br /> <br />Gregg Ramirez, Senior Planner, provided a brief project description stating that the requested coastal <br />development permit would allow an approximate 9-inch concrete cap to be placed on top of the existing <br />seawalls located on North and South Bay Front. This would not affect Little Balboa Island. The project also <br />includes gaps in the seawall cap and seawall to preserve public access to beaches and docks on the island. <br />A design feature includes an additional step to provide access to the existing private docks on the island. <br />The purpose of the cap is to provide flood protection during high tide events, storm surges, etc. There will be <br />no impact to existing public access. Public access during construction will be maintained, and half the <br />boardwalk will remain open for the majority of the construction period.
