Skate Park Project

Project Name: Skate Park Project

Project Location: A 2.718-acre site on Center Avenue, located approximately 500 ft. east of Gothard Street. The proposed project is located within a vacant property owned by the City of Huntington Beach bordered by McFadden Avenue to the north, Center Avenue to the south, the Pacific Electric Railroad track to the east, and the Southern California Edison electrical transmission line easement to the west.

Project Description: The applicant, VF Outdoor Inc., proposes to lease the vacant property from the City to design, develop, maintain, and operate a public skate park. The proposed project includes a 14,000 sq. ft. skate plaza area, a 13,000 sq. ft. skate bowl area, a 3,500 sq. ft. skate shop/concession/restroom building, a 15,000 sq. ft. turf/walking area, a 480 sq. ft. restroom structure, and a 200 sq. ft. entrance kiosk. The main parking lot is accessed from Center Avenue and a secondary parking area, which is used only for special events, is accessed from McFadden Avenue. The project also includes a General Plan Amendment and Zoning Text Amendment as the site is currently designated for housing and this designation would be removed. Project entitlements include a Site Plan Review and Variance to deviate from the parking standard requirements.

The Community Development Department, via the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) process, will analyze the potentially significant environmental impacts of the proposed Skate Park Project and identify mitigation measures to reduce or eliminate these impacts. PCR Services Corporation has been retained to prepare all studies and documentation necessary to comply with the provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), as well as conducting an impact assessment, development of mitigation measures, review for CEQA adequacy, attendance at public meetings, responses to comments, coordination between City staff and the project team.
