The project is the adoption and implementation of the Downtown Community Plan, which would replace the existing PD-30 planned development ordinance for the Downtown Community Plan area. Including the potential expansion area within the Downtown Community Plan area boundary, would necessitate revisions to PD-29, in addition to PD-30/existing zoning within the area. The Long Beach Downtown Community Plan would incorporate zoning, development standards, and design guidelines to establish design and development criteria to guide new development that would be consistent with the community vision for the Downtown. Full implementation of the Downtown Community Plan would increase the density and intensity of existing Downtown land uses by allowing up to approximately 9,200 new residential units, 1.5 million square feet of new office, civic, cultural, and similar uses, 480,000 square feet of new retail, and 3,200 new hotel rooms. The Downtown Community Plan would provide flexibility in achieving these land use goals by allowing adjustments between planned land uses based on market demand, so long as the alternative land uses are consistent with the traffic and other impacts addressed in the Program EIR. The overall development assumed in the Downtown Community Plan would occur over a 25-year time period.
