This phase consists of a comprehensive update to the city’s Local Coastal Program Land Use Plan. The Local Coastal Program ensures that development within the city’s coastal zone protects and enhances coastal resources and is consistent with the California Coastal Act.
The objectives of the Local Coastal Program update include:
Ensure the land use plan is consistent with the California Coastal Act, the Carlsbad Community Vision and the city’s General Plan.
Format the document to ensure it is user-friendly and easy to administer.
Develop new detailed, parcel-level maps that clearly delineate the boundaries of the Coastal Zone, Coastal Commission’s permit jurisdiction and Coastal Commission’s appeal area.
Status of Local Coastal Program Land Use Plan Update
The draft land use plan below is now available for public review and comment. An informational meeting was held on Oct. 29, 2019, to provide an overview of the updates made to the plan and answer questions.
