ATC Hotel and Commercial Project
|The City's Architectural Review Board (ARB), met on December 15, 2020, received public testimony, and provided several recommendations for the Planning Commission's (PC) consideration. At this meeting, an inconsistency in the City's Implementation Plan (IP) of the Local Coastal Program (LCP) was discovered. To ensure consistency, the project has been paused to provide time to allow the City to undertake a clarifying amendment to Section 23.90.180.C.4.g of the IP which would bring the various regulatory requirements into alignment. The LCP amendment is tentatively scheduled to be heard by the Coastal Commission at its August 2021 meeting.
The Planning Commission's decision is appealable to the City Council, and as portions of the project are within the designated Coastal Commission appeals jurisdiction, the final City decision is appealable to the California Coastal Commission, at least for those portions within the appeals jurisdiction.
Whether or not the Planning Commission's action on the project is appealed - or called up to - the City Council, the Council will consider the associated lease agreement should the other permits be approved. The City Council's consideration of the proposed lease agreement and any appeal or call-up of the Planning Commission's decision is tentatively scheduled for later this spring.
The American Tin Cannery Hotel and Commercial Project's Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) comment period closed on Monday, September 28, 2020 at 5pm. The required 45-day comment period was extended to 60 days to provide for additional comment opportunities. Over 100 comment letters were received, including those by individuals who wrote more than one email or letter. Kimley-Horn and Associates, the EIR preparer, prepared responses to each of the comments received during the comment period and included these comments, along with appropriate updates to the EIR, in a proposed Final EIR. The Final EIR will be considered by City decision makers along with the project permits and entitlements. The FEIR and project plans are available for check-out at the PG Public Library, for review at the Community Development Department at City Hall and on the City's CEQA webpage.
