A public hearing has been scheduled regarding the city’s Coastal Land Use Plan, which is intended to be part of the Coastal Local Coastal Program.

An initial environmental assessment for the CLUP was completed, as required by the California Environmental Quality Act, according to a city of San Clemente press release.

The release also stated people who may challenge the project in court may be limited to raising issues that were discussed in public hearing or submitted in writing to the city.

The next public hearing will be held at the next City Council meeting at 6 p.m. on Dec. 15 at the City Hall Council Chambers, 100 Avenida Presidio. Upon adoption, the CLUP would need final approval by the California Coastal Commission.

The application 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 the Community Development Department at 949.361.6190. To comment on the document and to see the draft, visit under “Planning Services” and “Long Range Planning.”
