Title: Surf City Nights
Applicant: City of Huntington Beach
Location: Main St. between PCH and Orange Ave
The Surf City Nights street festival has been operating every Tuesday night on Main Street since May, 2008. A request to permit Surf City Nights for an indefinite period of time and to expand onto a portion of 5th Street was submitted and further CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) analysis has been performed. A Focused Environmental Impact Report (EIR) has been prepared for the Project in conjunction with Coastal Development Permit No. 12-001, Conditional Use Permit No. 12-026, and Noise Deviation Permit No. 13-009.
The project is located on Main Street between Pacific Coast Highway and Orange Avenue including portions (half-block) of Walnut Avenue and Olive Avenue (between 3rd Street and 5th Street) and on 5th Street between Pacific Coast Highway and Walnut. The project involves the closure of Main Street and 5th Street and associated side streets every Tuesday night between 2:00 PM and 10:00 PM to allow for an outdoor street festival (Surf City Nights) between 5:00 PM and 9:00 PM for an indefinite period of time. The festival will consist of approximately 65 street vendors and includes various activities such as sidewalk sales, farmer's market, live entertainment, food preparation and tasting, and children's activities (bounce house and train). A shuttle program will be provided via a remote parking lot located at 2000 Main Street (City Hall) with a free shuttle service to/from the festival to accommodate overflow parking year round. The project includes amplified music on Main Street. No amplified music is proposed for 5th Street; and no development is proposed.
