NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT PUBLIC A HEARING
WILL BE HELD BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE
CITY OF SAN CLEMENTE, CALIFORNIA,
RELATIVE TO THE FOLLOWING:
Zoning Amendment 17-043 – Regulation of Smoke or Tobacco Shops (Smoke Shop Ordinance)
Notice is hereby given that the City of San Clemente shall have a public hearing to consider a city-initiated amendment to San Clemente Municipal Code Title 17, the Zoning Ordinance, regarding the regulation of smoke or tobacco shops. The City Council will be considering changes to the Zoning Ordinance in Chapters 17.28, 17.36, 17.40, and 17.88 related to special uses, the permitted zones for the special uses, and related definitions.
Notice is hereby given that the project has been reviewed in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (Pub. Resources Code, § 21000 et seq.) (“CEQA”) and the State CEQA Guidelines (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 14, § 15000 et seq.), and the proposed amendment to the Zoning Ordinance is exempt from environmental review pursuant to State CEQA Guidelines sections 15378(b)(2) and 15378(b)(5) because the revisions relate to the ongoing administrative activities and organizational or administrative activities of governments that will not result in direct or indirect physical changes in the environment, and therefore do not constitute a “project” as defined by the State CEQA Guidelines (Cal. Code Regs., title 14, § 15000 et seq.) and therefore are exempt from CEQA and no further environmental review is required.
The draft Zoning Amendment is on file at the City of San Clemente Community Development Department, 910 Calle Negocio, and is available for public inspection and comment by contacting Gabriel Perez, City Planner, in the Community Development Department at (949) 361-6196.
