B-2. GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENT NO. 10-002/ZONING TEXT AMENDMENT NO. 10-002/ZONING MAP AMENDMENT NO. 10-001/LOCAL COASTAL PROGRAM AMENDMENT NO. 10-001/ANNEXATION NO. 10-001/DRAFT NEGATIVE DECLARATION NO. 10-005 (SUNSET BEACH SPECIFIC PLAN AND ANNEXATION) Applicant: The City of Huntington Beach Property Owner: Various Request: Annexation No. 10-001 is a City-initiated proposal to annex the approximately 134 acre unincorporated Sunset Beach community to the City of Huntington Beach. The property is currently located within the jurisdiction of the County of Orange. General Plan Amendment No. 10-002 is a request to amend the General Plan Land Use Map (Figure LU-5) to establish General Plan land use designations for the Sunset Beach area as follows - approximately 22.3 acres for Residential High Density-30, 9.2 acres for Visitor Serving Commercial-Mixed Use Overlay, 13.0 acres for Public, 3.4 acres for Open Space-Water Recreation and 57.7 acres for Open Space-Shoreline. The remainder of the area is right-of-way. The entire area would also have a Specific Plan Overlay. The General Plan Amendment would designate the Sunset Beach area as Subarea 4L on the Community District and Subarea Schedule (Figure LU-6 and Table LU-4) and would amend Table LU-3 to add a reference to "specific plans" for the Mixed Use Overlay. In addition, the General Plan Amendment would update figures to reflect the change in the City’s boundary, would make minor wording changes to the Utility Element and would update the Recreation and Community Services Element to reflect updated recreational amenity information. Zoning Text Amendment No. 10-002 is a request to create the Sunset Beach Specific Plan (Specific Plan 17) that will provide development standards for the Specific Plan area. The Sunset Beach area is currently governed by a County of Orange Sunset Beach Specific Plan. Zoning Map Amendment No. 10-001 is a request to amend the City of Huntington Beach Zoning Map to pre-zone the Sunset Beach area with the Sunset Beach Specific Plan. Local Coastal Program Amendment No. 10-001 is a request to amend the City of Huntington Beach Local Coastal Program Land Use Plan and Implementation Plan to: 1) amend the certified Land Use Plan (Figure C-5) to establish City Land Use Designations for the Sunset Beach area consistent with the General Plan Land Use Designations described above, including designating it as Subarea 4L on the Community District and Subarea Schedule (Figure C-10 and Table C-2); 2) amend Land Use Plan Table C-1 to add a reference to “specific plans� for the Mixed Use Overlay; 3) amend various text sections of the Land Use Plan to include descriptions of the Sunset Beach area and update the figures to reflect the change in City boundary; and 4) amend the Implementation Plan to reflect the Zoning Map Amendment and Zoning Text Amendment described above. Draft Negative Declaration No. 10-005 analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with the General Plan Amendment, Zoning Text Amendment, pre-zoning, Local Coastal Program Amendment and annexation of Sunset Beach. Location: Unincorporated Sunset Beach, located between Warner Avenue and Anderson Street on either side of Pacific Coast Highway, including the beach area Project Planner: Mary Beth Broeren
