Draft Environmental Impact Report No. 08-001 for The Downtown Specific Plan Update was prepared and  available for public review and comment for forty-five (45) days commencing Monday, July 20, 2009 and ending Wednesday, September 2, 2009. A copy of Draft EIR No. 08-001 is on file with the Department of Planning, City of Huntington Beach City Hall, 2000 Main Street, Huntington Beach, California. Draft EIR No. 08-001 is also available for review in the City Clerk’s office, City Hall, 2nd Floor, 2000 Main Street; the Main Street Branch Library, 525 Main Street, Huntington Beach, CA 92648, the Rodgers Senior Center, 1706 Orange Avenue, Huntington Beach, CA 92648 and on the Internet at surfcity-hb.org/CityDepartments/planning/major/DTSP.

A public comment meeting was held during the review period to take comments related to the adequacy of the environmental issues analyzed within the Draft EIR. The comment meeting on Thursday, August 13, 2009, began at 6:00 PM in Room B8, City Hall – Lower Level 2000 Main Street, Huntington Beach, CA 92648. Any person wishing to comment on the request was allowed to do so in writing during the forty-five (45) day comment period by providing written comments to Jennifer Villasenor, Associate Planner, City of Huntington Beach Planning Department, 2000 Main Street, Huntington Beach, CA 92648.

Draft Environmental Impact Report No. 08-001 for the Downtown Specific Plan Update analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with a City-initiated proposal to update Specific Plan No. 5 – Downtown Specific Plan (DTSP). The project proposes to reconfigure the existing 11 Specific Plan districts into 7 districts, modify development and parking standards, incorporate design guidelines and provide recommendations for street improvements, public amenities, circulation enhancements, infrastructure and public facility improvements and parking strategies.


The project also proposes revised parking requirements and modified parking ratios, the elimination of the Downtown Parking Master Plan concept, a Cultural Arts Overlay in the northern portion of the DTSP area on the site of the existing Main Street Branch library, a Neighborhood Overlay on 1st and 2nd Street between Walnut Avenue and Orange Avenue, and the elimination of the Resource Production Overlay in District 8 of the existing DTSP, although provisions for continued oil recovery remain in the proposed DTSP Update.
