City of Newport Beach <br />City Council Minutes <br />September 12, 2000 <br />INDEX <br />been in affect when the Old Newport SAP was proposed and the people <br />approved the SAP, the 145 dwelling units would not have counted toward <br />the initiative and the project would have gone forward without an election. <br />Assuming that Greenlight was in affect when the Old Newport SAP was <br />proposed and the people disapproved the SAP, he indicated that there would <br />be no units to count and the project would have still gone forward without an <br />election. Mr. Hyans indicated that, if Greenlight was introduced after the <br />1992 SAP was adopted, it is stated in the initiative that "the City is <br />encouraged to adopt guidelines to implement the Greenlight amendment and <br />that such guidelines could include resetting any or all concurrently <br />cumulative amendments for dwelling units, daily trips, and square feet of <br />commercial space back to zero." Mr. Hyans stated that, contrary to what is <br />being read daily in paid ads, Greenlight will not stand in the way of 100 <br />square foot office additions, school expansions, church meeting halls, <br />restaurant renovations, or fire stations. He indicated that Greenlight will <br />require, but preclude at the same time, the need for public concurrence on <br />the really big and onerous projects beyond entitlement. He asked that <br />Council not allow staff to join Greenlight's opponents. He expressed the <br />opinion that Greenlight is a logical, thoughtful, and reasonable document <br />that was authored by the same people who authored the Traffic Phasing <br />Ordinance (TPO). Further, Greenlight will restore the TPO which served <br />the City well for 22 years until it was modified last November. <br />PUBLIC HEARING <br />17.
