Beach and Edinger Corridors Specific Plan-SP 14 (General Plan Amendment N0. 08-002, Zoning Text Amendment No. 08-002, Zoning Map Amendment No. 08-002)
To establish a new Specific Plan (SP 14) along a majority of Beach Blvs, and the easterly portion of Edinger Ave. to allow mixed-use and residential development in areas of the city that were not previously designated to permit such uses, as well as to continue to allow commercial uses. The Request includes the following entitlements: GPA: To amend the proposed area's General Plan Land Use Designations from the current Commercial Regional, Commercial Neighborhood, Commercial General, Commercial Office, Mixed Use, Mixed Use Vertical, Mixed Use Horizontal and Residential Medium Density to M-sp-d (Mixed Use-specific plan-design overlay). The existing Floor Area Ratios and density limitations of the General Plan would no longer be in effect for the area, and the auto overlay applicable to property fronting Beach Boulevard from Warner north to Edinger would be removed from the Land Use Map. The General Plan Community District and Subarea Schedule and Map would be amended to reflect the provisions of SP 14. ZTA: To amend the Huntington Beach Zoning Ordinance to establish the Beach and Edinger Corridors Specific Plan No. 14. SP 14 sets forth permitted uses and development standards for the area. It does not propose Floor Area Ratios or density factors. SP 14 allows for new development of up to 4,500 Dwelling Units, 738-400 sf of Retail Space, 350 Hotel Rooms, and 112,000 sf of Office Space. SP 14 proposes building height limits of two six stories overall and up to 14 stories on property within 500 ft of the I-405. The proposed standards also call for reduced front yard setbacks, changes to the location of new parking lots, reduced parking requirements and new standards related to configuration and massing of buildings. ZMA: To amend the City's Zoning Map to reflect the SP-14 designation, thereby changing the existing zoning designations for the Specific Plan area. SP 14 would supersede the Pacifica Community Plan, and commercial portion of Seabridge Specific Plan SP-3, which would no longer be in effect.
