The city on Tuesday, Oct. 22, announced that the draft of the Pier Bowl Specific Plan Update has been posted to the city’s website and is available for public review and comment.

The San Clemente Planning Commission is scheduled to continue its public hearing and discussion on the plan during its Nov. 6 meeting, when it’s also expected to consider forwarding the recommendation to the city council.

Following the Planning Commission’s review and recommendation, a city council hearing will be scheduled for late December or early January 2020, according to the city.

The update is meant to amend land uses and development standards to be consistent with updates to the city’s General Plan and Coastal Land Use Plan, as well as improve the plan’s organization, format, and maps. The updated plan also intends to reflect current conditions of the area.

The plan update can be found at For additional information or to comment, contact Associate Planner Christopher Wright by email at or by phone at 949.361.6193.
