Document Description
The proposed project would consist of the following changes to Title 21 of the Long Beach Municipal Code (zoning ordinance) collectively referred to as the project: 1) create a zoning code definition for drive-through facilities; 2) update the commercial and industrial zones permitted use tables with the new drive-through facility definition; 3) require a CUP for new fast food drive-through and expansions in industrial zones and in all planned development districts for consistency with the existing review process in the commercial zones that allow this use; 4) make reference to the design guidelines that will be developed at a later time and will supplement the drive-through regulations in the zoning code; 5) include a provision to address the demolition and/or rebuilding of a drive-through facility approved under a previous CUP and subsequently, made legally nonconforming with the project; and 6) provide new required findings specific to the drive-through use.
