Q SEW Pp�T <br />CITY OF <br />z NEWPORT BEACH <br />c�<,FORN'P City Council Staff Report <br />November 24, 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, Principal Planner, <br />PHONE: 949-644-3209 <br />TITLE: Ordinance No. 2020-28: Residential Design Standards Amendments <br />to Title 20 and Title 21 of the Newport Beach Municipal Code <br />(PA2019-070) <br />ABSTRACT <br />For City Council's consideration are proposed amendments to Title 20 (Zoning Code) and <br />Title 21 (Local Coastal Program Implementation Plan) of the Newport Beach Municipal Code <br />(NBMC) revising development standards applicable to one and two -unit residential <br />development. Generally, the proposed amendments would reduce bulk and mass <br />associated with future residential development by clarifying the definition of gross floor <br />area, regulating covered third floor decks, and expanding the application of third floor and <br />open volume standards to all single -unit and two -unit residential developments. The <br />amendments would not result in the reduction of allowable density on a lot. Furthermore, no <br />changes in overall height limits, allowable floor area, lot coverage, or setbacks are proposed <br />that would lessen the intensity of housing on a site. <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 significant <br />effect on the environment; <br />c) Waive full reading, read by title only, introduce Ordinance No. 2020-28, An Ordinance <br />of the City Council of Newport Beach, California, Adopting Zoning Code Amendment <br />No. CA2019-004 to Amend Title 20 (Planning and Zoning) of the City of Newport <br />Beach Municipal Code Related to Residential Design Standards (PA2019-070), and <br />pass to second reading on December 8, 2020; and <br />d) Adopt Resolution No. 2020-10, A Resolution of the City Council of the City of Newport <br />Beach, California, Authorizing Submittal of Local Coastal Program Amendment <br />No. LC2019-006 to the California Coastal Commission to Amend Title 21 (Local <br />Coastal Program Implementation Plan) of the City of Newport Beach Municipal Code <br />Related to Residential Design Standards (PA2019-070). <br />16-1 <br />
