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

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


WHEN:    Monday, March 13, 2023 at 7 PM

WHY:       The purpose of the Public Hearing is for the City Council to review and to receive public input on the proposed Ordinance.

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. 

The City Council Agenda and Project staff report will be available for viewing at City Hall and online no later than 72 hours prior to the meeting date and time.  Submit comments BEFORE 3 PM on Monday, March 13, 2023, by LETTER to Culver City Current Planning Division, Attention: Current Planning Division, 9770 Culver Boulevard, 2nd Floor, Culver City, CA 90232, FAX at (310) 253-5721, EMAIL to erika.ramirez@culvercity.org, or PHONE at (310) 253-5727.  City Hall Hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM, and closed every other Friday (Closed February 24th and March 10th).  The Project file including the plans are currently available to view by contacting the Current Planning Division.
