NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT ON MAY 8, 2019 A PUBLIC HEARING
WILL BE HELD BY THE PLANNING COMMISSION OF THE
CITY OF SAN CLEMENTE, CALIFORNIA
RELATIVE TO THE FOLLOWING:
Zoning Amendment 17-043 – Check Cashers, Pawnbrokers, and Smoke Shops Ordinance
Notice is hereby given that the City of San Clemente shall have a public hearing to consider a proposal to amend San Clemente Municipal Code Title 17, the Zoning Ordinance, regarding the regulation of check cashers, pawnbrokers, and smoke shops. The Planning Commission 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 amendment is available for public review at the Community Development Department, 910 Calle Negocio, San Clemente, or by contacting City Planner Gabriel Perez at firstname.lastname@example.org or (949) 361-6196.
