SC Council, Committee Discuss Future of Town Growth

The San Clemente City Council will meet Tuesday with its General Plan Advisory Committee to discuss the draft of the package of zoning measures and directions that will govern the town's growth for at least a decade.

Clarification: An earlier version of this article implied that policy changes or revisions of the general plan would be the subject of this meeting. That is not the case. According to San Clemente Principal Planner Jeff Hook,  "the Joint City Council/GPAC meeting tonight, 11/13, at Casa Romantica, is purely social and to thank GPAC members." Patch regrets any confusion caused.

The city's General Plan Advisory Committee has finished putting their tweaks into the draft plan to govern growth San Clemente for at least the next decade, and the city council will meet with them Tuesday to congratulate them on their effort.

The San Clemente City Council must ultimately approve the city's General Plan, which has been painstakingly developed by an appointed committee, a consultant and city staffers over the past years.

The plan includes controversial reccommendations for the city to develop and implement form-based codes to govern building height, rather than the blanket two-story limit for downtown and North Beach favored by the two council candidates who won the recent election, Chris Hamm and incumbent Bob Baker.

Other elements of the plan include discussion of potential new developments, broad plans for traffic and signaling, zoning direction and other city planning issues.

The joint council and committee meeting will happen at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Casa Romantica, 415 Ave. Granada.
