For Immediate Release
Parties Agree to Postponement of Pete's Harbor Appeal Hearing
The appellant in the Pete's Harbor development proposal, Save Pete's Harbor, and the project applicant, RWC Harbor Communities, have notified the City that they are requesting a postponement of the public hearing on this project, which is currently scheduled for the City Council meeting on Monday, January 28. The hearing was an appeal of the Planning Commission's approval of the Pete's Harbor development, and the parties have agreed to a postponement, or "continuation," of the hearing to a future date.
With both the project applicant and the appellant agreeing to the continuation, the public hearing on the appeal will not take place at Monday night's City Council meeting. Instead, the City Council will determine an appropriate future date for the hearing to take place.
The continuation provides the opportunity for the applicant and other parties to gain clarification from the California State Lands Commission (SLC) as to whether the water area under its jurisdiction, currently leased to the property owner as a commercial marina, may be transferred to the developer for private use as part of the development.
The issues may go before the SLC for discussion at its meeting in April, in which case the City hearing on the appeal may be scheduled for May.
