City of Gardena Land Use Plan, Zoning Code & Zoning Amendment
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Document Description
The Project amends the Land Use Plan, including the Land Use map, Zoning Code, and Zoning Map, and rescinds the Artesia Corridor Specific Plan (ACSP). Although the proposed Project does not involve site-specific development, the intent is to provide adequate sites for residential development to accommodate the City’s regional housing needs allocation (RHNA) and to allow for additional residential development opportunities should they arise. To allow for new residential development, it is assumed existing on-site uses will be removed and residential development, will occur. The assumptions used in the EIR are consistent with the assumptions that were used in the recently adopted 6th Cycle Housing Element and assumes every Inventory Site, as well as the Non-inventory sites, will actually be developed with residential uses only; non-residential development would not occur. However unlikely, the assumptions in this EIR present a possible development potential. The proposed Project could result in 154 fewer single-family dwelling units; 12,167 additional multiple-family units, and 7,544,381 fewer square feet of non-residential development.
