IssueOutcomeDescription The Commission voted 7-3 to approve this p
The Commission voted 7-3 to approve this project. Commissioners Groom, Howell and Shallenberger raised concerns about: traffic impacts, degradation of habitat for bird species, incremental loss of open space, and the need to build more lower cost housing. Commissioner Shallenberger had a poignant quote summarizing the impacts of new development. “While the project footprint will only consume a few acres, that is exactly how precious habitat is lost. It just takes 50 of these types of projects to eat up 100 acres of diminishing coastal habitat.”

IssueReason As mentioned by Commissioner Shallenberger
As mentioned by Commissioner Shallenberger, these are exactly the types of projects that incrementally deteriorate coastal resources—impacting sensitive habitat and perpetuating more development along our coastline. Commissioner Howell made an important point about analyzing traffic saying, “This town is not Los Angeles and we need to make sure traffic is analyzed and mitigated.” Finally it is important to note that development of these 15 new homes negates the Commission’s attempts at increasing ‘affordable’ housing. While the project proponent will construct two affordable housing units, this is simply not enough considering home prices along the California’s coast and when contemplating the Commission’s attempt to encourage affordable housing.
