City of Newport Beach General Plan Update EIR
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
The existing General Plan for the City of Newport Beach currently designates land use.
Document Description
Implementation of the proposed General Plan Update would result in new development within the Planning Area, which consists of two geographical areas; the City's corporate limits, and its Sphere of Influence (SOI) represents those areas likely to be served by and potentially annexed to the City. The SOI includes the existing City boundaries as well as an additional 361 acres of land in the Banning Ranch subarea. Land use designations under the proposed General Plan include residential, commercial, office, industrial, parks/open space, visitor-serving, and institutional. Generally, development in accordance with the General Plan would result in appropriate infill of vacant lands in the City and redevelopment of existing sites, effective reuse of obsolete sites, and incremental growth in specific areas within the City. Implementation of the updated General Plan at its fullest intensity for all vacant lands would result in the development of the land use types listed above.
