Q SEW Pp�T <br />CITY OF <br />z NEWPORT BEACH <br />c�<,FORN'P City Council Staff Report <br />January 28, 2020 <br />Agenda Item No. 16 <br />TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL <br />FROM: Seimone Jurjis, Community Development Director - 949-644-3232, <br /> <br />PREPARED BY: Jaime Murillo, AICP, Principal Planner, <br /> <br />PHONE: 949-644-3209 <br />TITLE: Ordinance No. 2020-4: Introduction of a Cottage Preservation <br />Ordinance (PA2019-181) <br />ABSTRACT: <br />The proposed amendments to the Local Coastal Program (Coastal Land Use Plan and <br />Implementation Plan), Newport Beach Municipal Code (NBMC) Title 20 (Planning and <br />Zoning), and Title 15 (Building and Construction) will provide a voluntary option for <br />homeowners seeking to remodel, but preserve traditional beach cottages. Typically, <br />cottages do not provide all the code -required parking and additions are limited to 10 percent <br />of the existing floor area. The amendments would allow larger additions (up to 50 percent <br />of the existing floor area or a maximum of 500 square feet) without providing the minimum <br />code -required parking when the project would result in the preservation of the cottage <br />character and building envelope that is representative of traditional development patterns <br />in the City. <br />RECOMMENDATION: <br />a) Conduct a public hearing; <br />b) Find this project exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) <br />pursuant to Section 21065 of CEQA and State CEQA Guidelines Sections 15060 <br />(c)(2), 15060 (c)(3), and 15378. The proposed action is also exempt pursuant to State <br />CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3) because it has no potential to have a <br />significant effect on the environment; <br />c) Waive reading, read by title only, introduce Ordinance No. 2020-4, An Ordinance of <br />the City Council of the City of Newport Beach, California, Adopting Code Amendment <br />No. CA2019-006 to Amend Title 15 Entitled "Building and Construction" and Title 20 <br />Entitled "Planning and Zoning" of the City of Newport Beach Code Related to Cottage <br />Preservation (PA2019-181), and pass to second reading on February 11, 2020; and <br />d) Adopt Resolution No. 2020-12, A Resolution of the City Council of the City of Newport <br />Beach, California, Authorizing Submittal of Local Coastal Program Amendment <br />No. LC2019-004 to the California Coastal Commission to Amend Title 21 Entitled <br />"Local Coastal Program Implementation Plan" of the City of Newport Beach Municipal <br />Code and the City of Newport Beach Local Coastal Program Coastal Land Use Plan <br />Related to Cottage Preservation (PA2019-181). <br />16-1 <br />
