On Monday, June 30, the City Council voted to postpone its hearing of the Ocean Beach Community Plan.
The postponement was in reaction to late comments received from California Coastal Commission staff, who recommended many small changes to the Plan. Ultimately these revisions should help to ensure that the Plan receives quicker certification from the Coastal Commission in the future. However, the late timing of the comments means that City Planning staff need more time to evaluate the recommended changes and revise the Plan prior to the City Council hearing.
The City Council has tentatively rescheduled the OB Community Plan hearing for Tuesday, July 29. However, this is dependent upon the completion of revisions. If issues arise with any Coastal Commission comments that cause further delay, the City Council may need to postpone the hearing again.
