Community Input Needed for Potential Harbor Code Revisions
The Harbor Commission (Commission) has initiated a process for reviewing Title 17, the Harbor Code section of the Newport Beach Municipal Code. The Commission recently formed an Ad-Hoc Committee to conduct a thorough review of Title 17 and to identify potential modifications. Gathering community input is an essential part of this review process.
To help facilitate public input, the Ad-Hoc Committee has divided Title 17 into three sections to allow an in-depth and thoughtful examination of the entire code. A series of meetings has been scheduled to review each section. The full meeting schedule is available here.
The Ad-Hoc Committee will examine each section twice. The first meeting is intended to garner feedback and solicit comments from community members. The second meeting will allow for a review of the draft revisions prior to presentation to the full Commission. The first meeting will be held on Monday, April 8, at 6 p.m., at Marina Park. Marina Park is located at 1600 W. Balboa Blvd.
Once the Ad-Hoc Committee has completed its work, the Harbor Commission will then review and consider the draft revisions. Should the Commission approve of any or all of the proposed revisions, the recommended changes will be forwarded to the City Council for its review and consideration.
