Local Coastal Program Update

Applicant: City of Huntington Beach

Project Summary

The City proposes an update to its Local Coastal Program (LCP) including:

  1. A General Plan Amendment (GPA) to comprehensively update the Coastal Element including sea level rise modeling, vulnerability assessment, and coastal resiliency planning
  2. A Zoning Text Amendment (ZTA) to add sea level rise standards in the floodplain ordinance
  3. A Local Coastal Program Amendment to incorporate the GPA and ZTA into the LCP
LCP Update Virtual Public Open HouseThe California Coastal Act requires local governments within the California Coastal Zone to have a certified LCP. LCPs contain rules and regulations for future development in the coastal zone and protection of coastal resources, by specifying the appropriate location, type, and scale of new or changed uses. The City of Huntington Beach is in the process of preparing a comprehensive update of the 2001 LCP to be consistent with updated sea level rise vulnerability and policy recommendations from the California Coastal Commission.  Your participation in the planning process is vital to the success of the City of Huntington Beach LCP update. Come learn about the LCP update and provide comments by attending a virtual public open house meeting at this link: https://huntingtonbeachlcp.z13.web.core.windows.net/.
