Document Description
The project application consists of a series of amendments to the city's DRP, the GP 2030, and the LCP that include revisions to plan text, modifications to guidelines and standards, and changes to coastal policies. The proposed DRP amendment would expand the location in which the Additional Height Zones are applied and revisions to the chapter 4 development standards of the DRP. The primary proposed modification would increase allowable building heights in the lower Pacific Ave and lower Front St areas and along the San Lorenzo River, between Cathcart and Laurel St, that could lead to increased upper floor residential development.
