Planning Division News Splash:
The purpose of this Notice of Preparation (NOP) is to notify potential Responsible Agencies and Trustee Agencies (“Agencies”) that the Lead Agency, the City of Newport Beach (“City”), will prepare an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed Newport Village Mixed-Use Project (“Project”) and to solicit comments and suggestions regarding (1) the scope and content of the EIR and (2) the environmental issues and alternatives to be addressed in the EIR (California Environmental Quality Act [CEQA] Guidelines §15082). This NOP also provides notice to interested parties, organizations, and individuals of the preparation of the EIR and requests comments on the scope and content of the environmental document.
The proposed Project consists of the construction of 122 residential dwelling units (14 residential condominium units on the South Parcel and 108 apartment units on the North Parcel) and 128,640 square feet of nonresidential floor area (including 96,905 square feet of existing and new office, 19,820 square feet of boat/vehicle sales, and 11,915 square feet of existing and new retail/food service). The design includes a new publicly accessible waterfront promenade and 827 surface, structured, and subterranean parking spaces. The existing bulkheads would be reinforced and capped along the waterfront. The proposed marina design would add headwalk sections, a new gangway, and reduce the total number of slips from 68 slips to 63 slips.
You can view the NOP at City Hall or the City libraries. An electronic copy of the notice of preparation is available online: www.newportbeachca.gov/ceqa.
