Document Description
An Addendum to the Environmental Impact Report (EIRA-02-20) for the Long Beach General Plan Land Use and Urban Design Elements Project (North Long Beach Zoning Project). In December 2019, the City Council of the City of Long Beach (City) approved the General Plan Land Use and Urban Design Elements Project (approved project). As part of the approved project, the City Council adopted an updated General Plan Land Use Element (LUE), and, consistent with State law, is currently undertaking a program to rezone properties throughout the City in order to be consistent with the updated LUE. The City’s Zoning Code (Title 21 of the City’s Municipal Code) has not been comprehensively updated since 1989 and does not provide the full range of zoning districts and general development standards needed to implement the policies of the LUE. The proposed project involves the establishment of 12 new zoning districts to be placed in a new Title 22 of the City’s Municipal Code. As a first phase, the City will adopt these new zones which implement and correspond with the Neighborhood Serving Corridor-Moderate (NSC-M), Neighborhood Serving Corridor-Low (NSC-L), and Community Commercial (CC) PlaceTypes and will rezone select properties within the North Long Beach area to these new zones. The 12 zoning districts represent two versions of six primary zoning districts, six “A-Series” zoning districts that are tailored to the unique needs of the North Long Beach corridors and six “standard” Citywide (non-A-series zoning districts) that will implement their respective PlaceTypes in other areas of the City. The heights, densities, and allowable uses permitted by the new zones are consistent with those contemplated by the updated LUE for their respective PlaceTypes.
