Planning Environmental Reports

Title: Park Avenue Rezone

Applicant: Michael C. Adams Associates

Location: 16926 Park Ave.

Report Summary

Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration No. 19-004 analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with a request to:  General Plan Amendment (GPA) No. 19-002 - To amend the General Plan land use designation from Open Space–Water Recreation (OS-W) to Residential Low Density (RL);  Zoning Map Amendment (ZMA) No. 19-002 - To amend the zoning designation from Open Space–Water Recreation – Coastal Zone Overlay – Floodplain Overlay (OS-WR-CZ-FP2) to Residential Low Density –Coastal Zone Overlay – Floodplain Overlay (RL-CZ-FP2); and Local Coastal Program Amendment (LCPA) No. 19-001 - To amend the City’s Local Coastal Program pursuant to the GPA and ZMA.    


The request would change the permitted land uses on the site from water recreation (i.e. marina) to residential.  The subject site is a vacant 6,179 square foot property located at the terminus of Park Avenue in Huntington Harbour.  No development is proposed with this application.  Based on the size of the subject site and the existing 10 ft. wide access way from the end of Park Avenue to the subject site, if the GPA, ZMA, and LCPA were approved the site could be developed with a single family dwelling subject to approval by the City of a Coastal Development Permit.


The Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration will be available for public review and comment for thirty (30) days commencing Thursday, July 18, 2019 and ending Friday, August 16, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. at:  Community Development  Department, 3rd floor, 2000 Main Street, Huntington Beach, CA 92648; City Clerk, 2nd floor, 2000 Main Street, Huntington Beach, CA 92648; Central Library, 7111 Talbert Avenue, Huntington Beach, CA 92647; and City website at


Any person wishing to comment on the request may provide written comments to Ricky Ramos, Senior Planner, City of Huntington Beach, Community Development Department, P.O. Box 190, Huntington Beach, CA 92648 or [email protected] by August 16, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. 


Subsequent to the public comment period, a public hearing will be scheduled before the Planning Commission tentatively for September 2019.  The public hearing will be separately noticed.  For further information, please contact Ricky Ramos, Senior Planner, at (714) 536-5624.
