County Denies Request for Commercial Zoning Update

Alarmed by recent large hotel proposals for Montara, the MCC held two well-attended meetings in March to discuss the extremely limited development standards in the C-1 zoning ordinance for Midcoast neighborhood commercial districts that can lead to this type of oversize development insensitive to community character.  MCC 3/22/17 letter & slide presentation to Supervisor Horsley and Community Development Director Steve Monowitz urged their support for an updated Neighborhood Commercial ordinance specific for the Midcoast.

The 3/29/17 County reply details the reasons for denying the MCC request, basically that existing standards adequately protect community character and that the Planning Dept is too busy the next few years with other long-range projects.

Instead of development standards that clearly and simply guide appropriate development that preserves our unique coastal small town character, we are left with long and contentious permit approval cycles and appeals with uncertain results.

Midcoast Residential Growth Rate 2014-2016

Building permits were issued for 34 new Midcoast dwelling units in 2016, up from 21 in 2015, and 10 in 2014.  The table has the details (town, address, parcel #, SFD= single family dwelling, building permit number, number of units, date permit issued).

The Local Coastal Program (LCP Policy 1.23) limits Midcoast residential growth rate to building permits issued for 40 dwelling units per calendar year.  This includes second units and each unit in multi-unit buildings. New units with affordability restrictions for low and moderate income can exceed the annual limit, but the growth rate average over the three-year period, that includes the year of building permit issuance and the following two years, must not exceed 40 units/year. 

Visitor-serving uses such as hotels are not considered dwelling units and are not subject to the growth rate limit.
