body

Statement of Issue:
The proposed Zoning Text Amendment (ZTA) would amend Chapter 222 (Floodplain Overlay District) of the Huntington Beach Zoning and Subdivision Ordinance (HBZSO) to bring it into compliance with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requirements. On June 28, 2022, the Planning Commission held a public hearing to consider the proposed ZTA, and the Planning Commission and staff recommend approval.

Financial Impact:
Not applicable.

Recommended Action:

end

Alternative Action(s):
A) Deny Zoning Text Amendment No. 22-003; or
