Local Coastal Program

On March 11, 2020, the California Coastal Commission certified the City's adopted Local Coastal Program (LCP). At the same hearing, the Coastal Commission certified the appeal jurisdiction map. This action resulted in a complete, certified LCP for the first time in the City's history.


Local Coastal Program clarifying amendment

At the request of California Coastal Commission staff, a Local Coastal Program Implementation Plan amendment will be discussed at the April 8, 2021 Planning Commission hearing for recommendation to Council. Council is tentatively scheduled to discuss the proposed amendment and take action on April 21, 2021. Subsequently, any amendment(s) will be submitted to the California Coastal Commission for decision. Chapter 23.90.180(c)(4)(G) includes exceptions to the development regulations for the portion of the site located seaward of Sloat Ave between Eardley Avenue and Dewey Avenue. California Coastal Commission staff recommended the application of this section be clarified. Staff is working with Coastal Commission staff on draft language for Planning Commission consideration and recommendation and ensuing Council action.
