Zoning Administrator Resolution No. ZA2019-031 <br />Paae 2 of 7 <br />2. Class 1 exempts additions of up to 50 percent of the floor area of structures before the <br />addition, or 2,500 square feet, whichever is less. The proposed project is a 267square-foot <br />addition to an existing 2,781 square -foot duplex, which is an addition of less than 10 percent <br />of the existing floor area. <br />3. The project is an addition to an existing duplex and does not increase the number of units. <br />SECTION 3. REQUIRED FINDINGS. <br />In accordance with Section 21.52.015 (Coastal Development Permits, Findings and Decision) <br />of the Newport Beach Municipal Code, the following findings and facts in support of such <br />findings are set forth: <br />Finding: <br />A. Conforms to all applicable sections of the certified Local Coastal Program. <br />Facts in Support of Finding: <br />The proposed development complies with applicable residential development standards <br />including, but not limited to, floor area limitation, setbacks, height, and parking. <br />a. The maximum floor area limitation is 3,561 square feet and the proposed floor area <br />including the 267 square -foot addition is 3,039 square feet. <br />b. The proposed development provides the minimum required setbacks, which are 9 <br />feet along the front property line abutting East Balboa Boulevard, 3 feet along each <br />side property line and 0 feet along the rear property line abutting the alley. <br />c. The highest guardrail is less than 24 feet from established grade based on the <br />plans, which complies with the maximum height requirements. <br />d. The existing duplex is legal nonconforming due to number of off-street parking <br />spaces. It provides two garage spaces where the current requirement is two covered <br />and two enclosed (i.e., four parking spaces total). Newport Beach Municipal Code <br />Section 21.38.060(A)(1)(b) allows additions up to 10 percent of the existing gross <br />floor area when a development does not maintain the required number of parking <br />spaces. In this case, an addition would be limited to 278 square feet and the proposed <br />addition is 267 square feet. <br />2. The neighborhood is predominantly developed with two- and three-story, single- and <br />two-family residences. The proposed design, bulk, and scale of the development is <br />consistent with the existing neighborhood pattern of development and expected future <br />development consistent with applicable development standards. <br />3. The property is an inland lot that is separated from the ocean by an alley, residential <br />development, and Peninsula Park. It is elevated at approximately 10 feet based on the <br />North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88). <br />05-15-2018 <br />
