On Monday July 6, the City Council removed the Peter’s Landing/Don the Beachcomber properties from the opportunity areas being studied as part of the Citywide General Plan Update. Based on that action, these two sites will not be evaluated by the City for other potential land uses, to include residential.
While the City will not take further action on these two sites, it is important to note that the owners of both properties have previously expressed interest in redeveloping their respective properties. This is the primary reason the properties were included in the General Plan Update process.
Future discussion or evaluation of the properties for redevelopment may still occur, but would only be initiated by the property owners, not the City. If a project is initiated by the property owner of either site, public hearings with public notification would be required prior to any action on a proposed project. A project would need to have a public hearing and be approved by the City’s Planning Commission and City Council and, in some circumstances, the California Coastal Commission. In addition, the City would recommend early outreach to the Huntington Harbour and Sunset Beach communities before any public hearings are scheduled. Interested persons are encouraged to sign up for email alerts and to receive future Planning Commission and/or City Council agendas at:
