Manhattan Beach planning commission tables comp plan changes
According to US Census Data, there are 41 residents in the city of Manhattan Beach. There were 31 people at the Manhattan Beach Planning Commission public hearing about comprehensive plan changes on Friday, May 20, including lawyers, a court reporter, non-resident property owners and city staff.
Numerous people spoke Friday night on potential changes to Manhattan Beach’s comprehensive plan that would allow the issuance of interim use permits. Eight spoke their opinion, and letters from another eight were read to the group.
Manhattan Beach had formerly issued home occupation permits, but after a lawsuit against the city struck those permits from the city’s code, the city attorney suggested issuing interim use permits (IUPs). The city already allows conditional use permits (CUPs), but CUPs have no end date and stay with the land they are issued to. IUPs, however, have a defined end date or end event. Like CUPs, IUPs require a public hearing before they can be issued.
