CONDO CONVER- SION PARKING

The commission will consider requiring more parking spaces when

property owners want to convert duplexes into condos for sale. The

city now has two different parking requirements for new projects --

one for properties in the coastal zone and old Corona del Mar, and

another for the rest of the city. When duplexes are converted,

they're required to meet only the standard in place at the time they

were built. That results in property owners providing fewer

off-street parking spaces for condos.

The City Council agreed last month to require more parking for

condo conversions of buildings with three or more units, but it left

duplexes alone after a number of residents complained they wouldn't

be able to meet more stringent parking requirements.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Opposition from some owners of duplexes is likely, but the staff

recommendation is to make city code more consistent by increasing the

parking requirement. If the commission agrees to the changes, the

council will have the final say.

DOMINGO VILLAS CONVERSION

The owner of an eight-unit complex on Domingo Drive wants to

convert the apartments to condos for sale and has planned renovations

such as new windows, landscaping and large decks. The city had failed

to notify tenants of the complex about a hearing set for July 25, so

it was rescheduled.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Staff members recommend approving the condo conversion.
