The project encompasses an urbanized area which is predominantly developed with a mix of residential, commercial, office, and public land uses. Residential development consists of low- and medium-density units. Commercial development in the Project is located generally in two areas: the City's oceanfront community provides goods and services that cater to a tourist population and local residents who use the beach area and consists of free-standing specialty stores, restaurants, hotels and motels. Beyond City limits, commercial land in the Project consists generally of automobile-related strip commercial uses with a wide mix of convenience stores, liquor stores, restaurants, bars, and service stations. Interspersed with these latter uses are motels and mobile home parks. Lastly, the Project includes a portion of an unused salt evaporation pond located at the extreme south end of San Diego Bay. No permanent structures exist therein. Existing Zoning and General Plan designations are largely consistent with the existing land use patterns.
The Project is to adopt and implement the Redevelopment Project Amendment that adds approximately 1,125 acres to the existing Palm Avenue/Commercial Redevelopment Project Area. These 1,125 acres ("the Amendment Area") are the focus of this environmental assessment. The Project is proposed by the Imperial Beach Redevelopment Agency for the purpose of alleviating blight and promoting reinvestment int the Amendment Area. The project will have no eminent domain authority.
