STATEMENT OF FACTS. <br /> <br />1. An application was filed by Saul Urquiza of Millot Engineering and Consulting (Applicant), <br />with respect to property located at 507 and 507 ½ Marguerite Avenue, and legally <br />described as Lot 7, Block 538, of the Corona del Mar Tract requesting approval of a <br />tentative parcel map for condominium purposes. <br /> <br />2. The Applicant requests a tentative parcel map for two (2)-unit condominium purposes. A <br />single-family residence has been demolished and a new duplex is under construction. The <br />tentative parcel map would allow each unit to be sold individually. No waivers of Newport <br />Beach Municipal Code (NBMC) Title 19 (Subdivisions) are proposed. <br /> <br />3. The subject property is located within the Two-Unit Residential (R-2) Zoning District and <br />the General Plan Land Use Element category is Two Unit Residential (RT). <br /> <br />4. The subject property is not located within the coastal zone; therefore, a coastal <br />development permit is not required. <br /> <br />5. A public hearing was held on July 28, 2022, online via Zoom. A notice of time, place and <br />purpose of the hearing was given in accordance with the NBMC. Evidence, both written <br />and oral, was presented to, and considered by, the Zoning Administrator at this hearing. <br /> <br />SECTION 2.

This project is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to <br />Section 15315 under Class 15 (Minor Land Divisions) of the CEQA Guidelines, California <br />Code of Regulations, Title 14, Division 6, Chapter 3, because it has no potential to have a <br />significant effect on the environment. <br /> <br />2. The Class 15 Exemption allows the division of property in urbanized areas zoned for <br />residential, commercial, or industrial use into four (4) or fewer parcels when the division <br />is in conformance with the General Plan and zoning, no variances or exceptions are <br />required, all services and access to the proposed parcels are available, the parcel was <br />not involved in a division of a larger parcel within the previous two (2) years, and the <br />parcel does not have an average slope greater than 20 percent. The project meets all <br />identified criteria; therefore, it is eligible for the Class 15 Exemption. <br />
