Nonconforming Building and Uses Ordinance Revision ZCA 09-01/LCPA 09-01
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration

Document Description
This proposal includes a City-initiated Zone Code Amendment (ZCA) and Local Coastal Program Amendment (LCP) to: 1) rescind and replace the Nonconforming Buildings and Uses Chapter of the Zoning Ordinance, 2) include new and amended associated definitions in Chapter 21.04-Definitions, and 3) amend Chapter 21.46-Yards to delete Section 21.46.210. The new ordinance is applicable to structures or uses that were legally established (with building permits), but do not conform to current regulations. The proposed amendments would: allow non-conforming residential and non-residential structures and nonconforming residential uses to expand by a new administrative Nonconforming Construction Permit; allow non-conforming non-residential uses to expand by Conditional Use Permit; preserve the City's right to abate a legal non-conforming use or structure that is no longer desirable; include an abatement process; and, would amend the provisions that relate to nonconforming lots and relocate those provisions from Section 21.46.210 to Section 21.48.040; and would include additional definitions in CMC Chapter 21.04 for clarity. The project applies to regulations that are applicable to properties citywide. There is no specific project site with a specific enviornmental setting or surrounding land uses.
