NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
On July 13, 2011, the Zoning Administrator approved the Comprehensive Sign Program for the Bayside Shopping Center, which is depicted in Exhibit 2. Also on July 13, 2011, the Zoning Administrator determined that the project is exempt from further environmental review consistent with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines under section 15311, Class 11 (Accessory Structures) that exempts small accessory structures such as on-premise signs in commercial areas. The signs will be consistent with Chapter 20.42 of the Newport Beach Municipal Code which requires comprehensive sign programs for large multi-tenant sites to establish a comprehensive and cohesive set of sign parameters while allowing flexibility to achieve a higher quality design presentation and avoiding inappropriate signage that could impact the neighborhood or City. The approved Comprehensive Sign Program will integrate all the project's signs into a single sign design theme that will create a unified architectural statement and limit signage and over size of signs on building wall facades.
