Document Description
NOTE: Revised The proposed "Zone 2 Moratorium Ordinance Revisions" would create a new exception category in the City's Moratorium Ordinance (Ch 15.20 of the City's Municipal Code) to allow the development of 16 undeveloped lots in Zone 2 of the City's Lanslide Moratorium Area. This action is in response to the CA State Court of Appeal's decision in the case of Monks v. Rancho Palos Verdes, which found that the City's prohibition against the development of undeveloped lots in Zone 2 was taking and an impermissible impediment to the development of the plaintiffs' lots. Within Zone 2, there are currently 47 undeveloped lots, of which 16 lots are owned by the plantiffs in the Monks case. The proposed project could lead to the development of up to 16 new single family residences.
