Following the conceptual review by the Design Review Board and Planning Commission, the applicant will be provided with all the comments and decide whether to pursue the project and if so, how to revise the plans.
If the applicant decides to pursue the project, their next step would be to formally submit any required applications to the City for formal review. At this point, a Major Design Review Permit, Master Use Permit amendment and Sign Program amendment would be required. Submittal of formal applications would include more detailed, plans and all require technical studies. In addition, the City will review the project for compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and determine if the project is exempt from CEQA or prepare an Initial Study and Negative Declaration, mitigated Declaration or Environmental Impact Report (EIR)
The City’s Design Review Board and Planning Commission will then hold public hearings on the applications.
