WHERE:  REGULAR MEETING – Attend In-Person or virtually via Webex

City Hall – Mike Balkman Council Chambers, 9770 Culver Boulevard, Culver City, CA 90232


WHEN:    Wednesday, February 8, 2023 at 7 PM.

WHY:       The purpose of the Public Hearing is for the Planning Commission to review and to receive public input on the proposed text amendments and consider recommendation to the City Council.

CEQA:     The Project is considered exempt from CEQA pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b) (3) because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the Project to amend the Zoning Code will have a significant effect on the environment.  The proposed Zoning Code Amendment, P2022-0357, by itself does not result in any physical changes nor any significant effects on the environment. Furthermore, the proposed Zoning Code Amendment is not in conjunction with the specific approval of any existing development or use permit applications. Therefore, any projects seeking approval subsequent to the proposed Zoning Code Amendment, would be subject to appropriate CEQA analysis at that time of any such application.
