"VNC DE MINIMIS PROJECT" and "VNC COMPLIANT PROJECT"

If a project is for a single-family dwelling and it is in full compliance with all provisions of the Venice Coastal Zone Specific Plan–subarea development standards and compatibility in mass, scale and character with the existing neighborhood, and not materially detrimental to adjoining lots or the immediate neighborhood, and has no exceptions, adjustments, or variances, then it may be submitted to the Venice LUPC for review and recommendation as a “VNC De Minimis Project.”  

 

The Applicant should contact the LUPC Chair at Chair-lupc@venicenc.org to make a request to be put on the LUPC Meeting Agenda for this purpose (normal 72-hour notice agenda).

The project will be individually listed on the LUPC Agenda under the Agenda Item “Review of Cases for “VNC De Minimis Project” categorization.” The Applicant will attend the meeting to provide an overview of the case and case documents, and answer any questions. If during that LUPC public hearing any LUPC member believes that the project does not comply with the above criteria, the project will be rescheduled for normal LUPC processing, including assignment of LUPC Staff, Neighborhood Outreach Meeting, LUPC presentation and recommendation, Motion re. specific recommendation to the VNC Board, and LUPC Staff Report to be forwarded to the VNC Board.

If it is determined by the full LUPC that the project does meet the above criteria, the LUPC will categorize the project as a “VNC De Minimis Project” and it will be forwarded to the VNC Board for inclusion in the following Motion on the next Board Meeting Consent Calendar :

“Upon the review and recommendation of the VNC Land Use and Planning Committee (LUPC), the following projects have been determined to be “VNC De Minimis Projects” and are deemed to be in full compliance with the Venice Coastal Zone Specific Plan subarea development standards are compatible in mass, scale and character with the existing neighborhood and not materially detrimental to adjoining lots or the immediate neighborhood, and have no exceptions, adjustments, or variances.”

Any Board member may request that the project be pulled from the Consent Calendar for an individual review/hearing by the VNC Board.

Upon VNC Board approval as “VNC De Minimis Projects,” a letter including all cases approved as such will be sent to the Coastal Commission and the Director of Planning, with copies to the senior Planning Staff, the Council Office representatives, the VNC Board members, the VNC LUPC members, and the Applicant’s Representative. The VNC Board reserves the right to take a different position at a later date in the event that any of the project details of a particular case, as initially presented to the LUPC, are changed without the consent of the affected parties.

NOTE: All other projects will be assigned LUPC Staff, who will coordinate with the Applicant to hold a Community Outreach Meeting(s), following which a LUPC Hearing will be held, where a Motion for VNC Board recommendation will be made, for submission to the VNC Board Agenda. Thereafter, a LUPC Staff Report will be prepared and the VNC Board Hearing will be held, where the VNC Board will hear Public Comment and vote on the recommendation provided by LUPC.  The final recommendation will be sent to all concerned parties in a letter from the VNC Board President.
