City Attorney's Impartial Analysis of Measure K

Background. The land use regulations in the City of Redondo Beach are generally governed by the city's General Plan, Coastal Land Use Plan and Coastal Zoning ("Planning Documents"). This Measure amends the land use regulations for a 3.37-acre surplus school site owned by the Redondo Beach Unified School District ("RBUSD") zoned P-CF Community Facility, located at 320 Knob Hill Avenue ("Site").

In 2007, the RBUSD Surplus Property Advisory Committee recommended that RBUSD lease the Site for fair market value. The RBUSD selected a developer to lease, construct, and operate a Residential Care Facility for the Elderly ("RCFE") on the Site, which is not currently a permissable or conditional land use in the City's Planning Documents.

The existing land use regulations for the Site allow for a structure with a maximum height of three stories which may contain a variety of land uses, including, but not limited to, government buildings, hospitals, medical offices, schools, recreational facilities and child day care facilities. To facilitate the project, RBUSD and the developer must obtain amendments to the Planning Documents from the City.

RBUSD generally has a statutory right to request a zone change for unused school sites. Earlier this year, the Redondo Beach City Council approved a request from RBUSD and the developer to amend the City's Planning Documents. However, before these amendments can become effective they must be approved by the citizens of Redondo Beach pursuant to Article XXVII of the City Charter and approved by the California Coastal Commission ("CCC").

The Measure. Measure K, which was placed on the ballot by the City Council, would amend these Plannnig Documents for the Site. The Measure would amend the P-CF land use regulations in the Coastal Zone to add RCFE to the list of additional uses which can operate on the Site. The Measure would not modify the existing three story height limit regulations. Once effective, the Measure would allow for the construction of a RCFE on the Site, which was conditionally approved by the City Councili as a two story development. The lease revenue from this development would be used to support the RBUSD's educational purposes.

Under State law, the City is required to submit Coastal Land Use Plan and Coastal Zoning amendments, such as the ones necessary for this project, to the CCC for certification. As part of this certification process the CCC can suggest modifications to the Coastal Land Use Plan and Coastal Zoning ("Suggested Modifications") to ensure consistency with the Coastal Act. Measure K also contains an amendment to the City Charter which exempts the City Council's adoption of the Suggested Modifications for the site from a second subsequent vote under Article XXVII of the City Charter.

Measure K requires approval of a majority of the voters in the City voting on it to become effective. A "yes" vote favors the changes for the RCFE project,a "no" vote opposes them.
