Document Description
Steiner Development Inc., the project applicant, is proposing a General Plan and Local Coastal Plan (LCP) Coastal Land Use Plan land use designation change from Low Density Residential to High Density Residential to facilitate the future development of a multi-family residential project on a currently vacant project site in the city of Morro Bay (city). The General Plan/LCP Coastal Land Use Plan amendment would necessitate a rezone of project site from R-A/PD (Suburban Residential/Planned Development) to R-4/PD (Multifamily Residential-Hotel-Professional/Planned Development)1. The project site includes ten existing parcels (Assessor Parcel Numbers 068-412-001 through 068-412-010) ranging in size from 0.32 acres to 0.61 acres for a total project site size of 4.7 acres (gross). The land use and zoning designation changes would increase the allowable density of the project site from up to 4 dwelling units per acre to up to 27 dwelling units per acre. No development has proposed at this time.
