October 24 2019: Doheny Village Districts Zoning Draft

June 28 2019: City staff met with interested stakeholders to provide an overview of zoning code update progress in the past year.

January 2019-March 2019: Working Group reviews development and parking standards

The Working Group is focused on reviewing development standards for each of the three core areas within The Village.
The majority of structures in The Village were developed under the Orange County Zoning Code and Capistrano Beach Specific Plan.
The Group researched how the City’s current zoning code requirements have limited redevelopment of existing properties since 1989.
The Group seeks to draft and adopt flexible standards that are appropriate for the neighborhood.

In October 2017, DVMA and local stakeholders have worked together on a monthly basis with City staff to develop a community-driven plan for the future of The Village.
In the past year, the following short-term goals have been completed:

City Council adopted Doheny Village Working Group Guiding Principles
City staff suspended work on the draft Environmental Impact Report
City Council approved the Zone Text Amendment to allow greater flexibility for redevelopment of nonconforming structures and uses
Working Group developed new zoning districts and draft zoning map
Working Group proposes modifications to existing, proposed, and prohibited land uses

In March 2016, the draft code was informally distributed and community members expressed issues related to parking, nonconforming uses, and development standards.
Comprised of long-term business owners, property owners, and village residents, Doheny Village Merchants’ Association (“DVMA”) was formed in late 2016 to address concerns with the proposed plan.

In 2015, the City Council awarded a contract to Opticos Design, Inc. to build off the effort of ROMA Design Group and prepare implementation language for The Village to be incorporated into the City’s zoning code.
A key component of Opticos’ work plan was to facilitate a community design charrette to engage the community and solicit additional input.

In 2010, the City Council selected ROMA Design Group to prepare the Doheny Village Plan for the project area commonly referenced as Doheny Village (“The Village”), and the project included public outreach and resulted in a draft document in 2013.
