Hearing to consider a request by the San Luis Obispo County Flood Control and Water Conservation District for a Development Plan/Coastal Development Permit (DRC2018-00105) to implement the Arroyo Grande Creek Channel Waterway Management Program (WMP) (October 2010). Implementation of the WMP would involve three distinct components along the lower, levied 3.5 mile portion of the Creek: (1) Vegetation Management – maintaining a 15-foot riparian buffer on both sides of the channel; (2) Sediment Management – excavation of secondary channels connected to the primary channel to allow for complex flow conditions that would encourage scour and sediment transport and reduce the need for future sediment removal; and (3) Levee Raising/Repair – raising or repairing of the earthen levees to provide 10-year flood protection. The proposed project is within multiple land use categories and is located within the Arroyo Grande Creek channel, from the upper edge of the Arroyo Grande Creek lagoon at the Pacific Ocean to the railway bridge, in the community of Oceano. The site is in the San Luis Bay (Coastal) Planning Area. Also to be considered is the environmental determination. The Environmental Coordinator finds that the previously certified Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) is adequate for the purposes of compliance with CEQA because no substantial changes are proposed in the project which will require major revision of the previously certified FEIR, no substantial changes occur with respect to the circumstance under which the project is undertaken which will require major revision of the previously certified FEIR, and no new information of substantial importance has been identified which was not known at the time that the previous FEIR was certified.

Hearing to consider a request by Kristina and Ken Spearman for a Development Plan/Coastal Development Permit (DRC2017-00069) to allow the construction of a single story 2,320-square-foot single-family residence with a 520-square-foot attached garage, a single story 580-square-foot second primary residence, driveway improvements, replacement of a water tank, installation of new utility lines and demolition of an existing 580-square-foot barn structure. The project includes a request for a wetland setback adjustment pursuant to Section 23.07.172 of the Coastal Zone Land Use Ordinance (CZLUO). The project would result in 1.2 acres of site disturbance on a 73.33-acre parcel in the Rural Lands land use category. The project is located 800 feet west of the Avila Beach Drive and Ontario Road intersection, in the community of Avila Beach. The project is in the San Luis Bay (Coastal) Planning Area. Also to be considered at the hearing will be adoption of the Environmental Document prepared for the item. The Environmental Coordinator, after completion of the initial study, finds that there is no substantial evidence that the project may have a significant effect on the environment, and the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report is not necessary. Therefore, a Mitigated Negative Declaration (pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21000 et seq., and CA Code of Regulations Section 15000 et seq.) has been issued on February 6, 2019 for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address Air Quality, Biological Resources, Cultural Resources, Geology and Soils, and Hazards/Hazardous Materials are included as conditions of approval.
