Manhattan Beach to hold public hearing on interim use permits

Manhattan Beach’s Planning and Zoning Commission held its first meeting in a year on Monday, April 18, and decided to hold a public hearing so residents can weigh in on whether the city should be able to issue interim use permits.

The meeting came after the city lost a lawsuit that resulted in part of its land use ordinance being deemed null and void by the court. The lawsuit, which was resolved March 3, was filed by residents Larry and Marilyn Wannebo against the City of Manhattan Beach, Steve and Laurie Peterson, and Northern Lakes Landscaping, the Petersons’ business. The Petersons were granted a home occupation permit (HOP) by the city for Northern Lakes Landscaping.

Larry and Marilyn Wannebo argued that the city exceeded its authority in granting the HOP to Northern Lakes Landscaping. The court ruled in Larry and Marilyn Wannebo’s favor, and the portion of the city’s code which allows for the issuance  of home occupation permits was ruled null and void, and so was the Petersons’ home occupation permit.
