Document Description
The implementation of the 2012 HTCMP and the Form-Based Code ("FBC") introduced land use inconsistencies between the Master Plan, the City of San Juan Capistrano General Plan, and the FBC. To remedy the inconsistencies, this project proposes repeal of the HTCMP and FBC as well as several revisions to replace the FBC by amending the Zoning Code and General Plan Land Use Element. The repeal of the HTCMP and the FBC would remove the inconsistencies that now burden the City's land use law and clarify allowable land uses in the project area. The accompanying General Plan Amendment and Zoning Ordinance will provide further clarity with respect to FAR, building height limits, and parking and setback regulations in the project area. Repealing the HTCMP would also maintain the existing roadway network and eliminate the identified future roadway connections proposed in the HTCMP. The General Plan Amendment would remove references to the HTCMP, and the Zoning Code Amendment would adopt language from the former FBC into the Zoning Code. On January 19, 2021 at a regularly held public meeting of City Council, after conducting second reading, the City Council approved and adopted Ordinance Nos. 1081 [General Plan Amendment 18-001] and 1082 [Code Amendment 18-001] for the project.
