NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT ON FEBRUARY 5, 2020 A PUBLIC HEARING
WILL BE HELD BY THE PLANNING COMMISSION OF THE
CITY OF SAN CLEMENTE, CALIFORNIA
RELATIVE TO THE FOLLOWING:
General Plan Amendment 20-011 – Roadway System Map Update
A public hearing to consider forwarding a recommendation to the City Council on the adoption of a City initiated update of the Mobility Element Roadway Systems Map. The project updates the map to reflect several previously approved street rehabilitation projects that reconfigure roadways (generally via re-striping) to better accommodate and balance all users of the roadway including motor vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians, according to General Plan policies. The proposed amendment is needed to meet Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) requirements for the General Plan to be consistent with the Orange County Master Plan of Arterial Highways (MPAH) in order to maintain the City’s eligibility for various regional transportation funding (example: Measure M2 Net Revenues).
The City completed an environmental assessment for the project in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Staff recommends the City find environmental impacts of the project have been adequately addressed and mitigated by the previously certified General Plan Program Environmental Impact Report, pursuant to State CEQA Guidelines Section 15162.
