The City Council of the City of Santa Ana hereby finds, determines <br />and declares as follows: <br />A. In May 1991, the City Council approved various documents for the <br />improvement and widening of Bristol Street, including a Plan identified as the <br />Bristol Street Corridor Specific Plan. This plan was intended to provide the <br />framework for future redevelopment of a 3.9 -mile section of the Bristol Street <br />Corridor in the central portion of the City. <br />B. Over the past 25 years, improvements to the corridor have been made that <br />are consistent with the goals and objectives of the Plan. However, recent <br />changes in right-of-way needs have resulted in a need to modify the plan that will <br />continue to further the goals of the plan while implementing a regulatory <br />framework that protects the health, safety, and welfare of the City. <br />C. Amendment Application No. 2015-01 has been filed by the City of Santa Ana to <br />change the zoning designation of various parcels located along the Bristol Street <br />Corridor Specific Plan boundaries. <br />D. The zoning designation of the various parcels as shown on Exhibit A will allow <br />the redevelopment of these parcels into residential or commercial uses, thereby <br />being consistent with the goals and objectives of the Plan. <br />E. Zoning Ordinance Amendment No. 2015-01 will amend the existing Bristol <br />Street Corridor Specific Plan (SP1), a copy which is available at the Planning <br />Division Public Counter and Main Public Library, or viewed on the City's Bristol <br />Street Specific Corridor webpage. <br />F. On April 9, 2018, the Planning Commission held a duly noticed public hearing <br />and voted to recommend that the City Council adopt an ordinance approving <br />Amendment Application No. 2015-01 subject to a modification to the plan that <br />requires parking be located at the rear of any new building. This action will be <br />consistent with the General Plan, as amended by General Plan Amendment No. <br />2015-01, and Zoning Ordinance Amendment No. 2015-01 to amend the Bristol <br />Street Corridor Specific Plan. <br />Ordinance No. NS -2949 <br />Page 1 of 15 <br />
