Speak Up Newport to address new state-mandated housing units

Where will the City of Newport Beach place the 4,845 new housing units mandated by the state?

The city is currently amending the city’s land use element, adding a housing overlay zoning district citywide, and adopting new design standards to provide for the new housing units. How will the city do that and maintain the character of Newport Beach? How will traffic and environmental impacts be addressed in the land use element and zoning code changes? How will your neighborhood be affected?

Come to the Speak Up Newport forum where these issues will be addressed on Tuesday, March 19 in the Civic Center Community Room. (Please note this special date.)

The featured speaker will be Seimone Jurjis, assistant city manager and community development director.
