J <br />• <br />• <br />City of Newport Beach <br />City Council Minutes <br />June 13, 2000 <br />Coast Highway/Marguerite intersection which has a long range problem <br />with or without the project. Regarding concerns expressed by the public that <br />the Bayside Drive and Coast Highway intersection, bridge across the bay, <br />and Bayside Drive would be severely impacted, he stated that the <br />Commission felt that the traffic studies did not support those concerns. <br />However, the Commission did approve a gated entry concept to be shared by <br />Bayside Village and the hotel as a way to ensure that Bayside Village would <br />have less of an impact from the hotel. <br />Mr. Selich stated that parking was a major concern for the Commission and <br />the public that testified. He reported that the parking demand analysis <br />concluded that there was sufficient parking if the entire Dunes property was <br />considered. However, the Commission was sufficiently concerned about this <br />to condition that a Parking Management Plan be developed and brought <br />back to the Commission for review and approval. Further, he reported that <br />the Commission added conditions on noise control that was more restrictive <br />than the current noise ordinance; added conditions for a detailed lighting <br />plan; and the mitigation measures contained in the Environmental Impact <br />Report place a host of water quality conditions on the project to ensure that <br />the water quality of the bay is maintained. He reported that the <br />Commission also placed quality and design controls in the development <br />agreement and Planning Commission zoning text to ensure that the project <br />is constructed to the highest standards and subject to further review by the <br />Commission for detailed architectural design, including color and materials, <br />detailed landscaping, parking and parking management, and onsite <br />circulation and access. Through the Planning Commission zoning text, the <br />Commission was also able to get an improved public walkway system around <br />the lagoon which will be more inviting and pedestrian - friendly to the public <br />than what presently exists. <br />Mr. Selich indicated that he compiled a comparison of what he thought were <br />the 13 most important aspects of the project and how they compared under <br />the settlement agreement and the proposed project. The following is a <br />summary of the comparison: <br />Issue <br />Settlement Agreement <br />1. Traffic <br />about 4,000 trip /day <br />2.
