Residential Planned Development Application
The applicant is currently working on preparing the application and plans to submit a Residential Planned Development application. The plans will provide detail on the proposed product type, number of units, stories, unit size, and architecture.
California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)
The City will enter into and manage the contracts with Cadence Environmental Consultants and The Natelson Dale Group for preparation of a CEQA document and economic study. The applicant is required to pay for the total direct cost of the consultant contracts plus 15% for the City’s administrative costs for managing the contracts.
A scoping meeting is anticipated to be scheduled in June-July 2019 to provide an opportunity for the public and interested parties to comment on the scope and content of the environmental document that will be prepared for the proposed project.
The City is aware that a Conditional Letter of Map Revision (CLOMR) application affecting property within the City is being prepared and submitted. The NUWI CLOMR application material was reviewed by City staff to verify it met the general requirements for submittal to FEMA, but no technical review or authorization of the submitted material was performed by the City because the submittal is very general in nature and a significant amount of additional details will be required as the project progresses through design and review by FEMA.
The City is aware that NUWI has submitted baseline floodplain hydrology and hydraulic modeling and analysis to the Ventura County Watershed Protection District (VCWPD) for review in preparation for the CLOMR application to FEMA. Further detailed hydrology and hydraulic calculations and modeling will be required as part of the review of the specific design of the project, and prior to any associated approvals by VCWPD, FEMA and the City.
Any possible removal of properties from a floodplain can happen only if FEMA revises the flood maps with a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR), which can only happen when FEMA gives final verification and approval that the grading and improvements identified in the CLOMR, previously approved by FEMA, have been completed with verification by the City.
The following summary of steps outline the major milestones in the process for City approval of the project and ultimate removal of properties from the floodplain by FEMA.
- NUWI has prepared a CLOMR application for submittal to FEMA and the City has signed the Community Acknowledgement letter for NUWI to include in the application.
- The project will require City review and council approval of CEQA, General Plan Amendment, Change of Zone and entitlements with conditions of approval.
- The conditions of approval will require an approved CLOMR from FEMA along with the typical package of required items to be reviewed and approved by the City including but not limited to hydrology/hydraulic study, site grading, drainage and improvement plans (streets, water, sewer, etc.), final map, and soils investigation report.
- The hydrology/hydraulic study and grading/improvement plans will have to comply with the requirements of the CLOMR approved by FEMA and all conditions of approval before the City will approve and permit the project for grading/construction of improvements but not structures.
- When the developer completes the construction of the grading, drainage and other required improvements in conformance with the CLOMR and the approved plans, they can submit an application to FEMA for review and approval of the final LOMR to remove the affected properties from the floodplain based on the completed grading and other required improvements.
- FEMA determines if a LOMR is to be issued and if it is, the flood map is changed by FEMA reflecting the removal of the affected properties from the floodplain.
- The City can then issue building permits for structures located on the affected properties once the LOMR is approved by FEMA.
The City recevied a copy of the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)'s letter, dated June 6, 2019, to NUWI. The letter is FEMA's response to the April 23, 2019 request from NUWI, that FEMA issue a conditional revision to the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for Ventura County, California and Incorporated Areas. The June 6th letter from FEMA explains that FEMA has reviewed NUWI's request and determined that additional data is required to complete FEMA's review.

The proposal would provide for up to 386 residential apartment units.
Residential Planned Development Application (RPD 201)
The applicant submitted an application and plans for a Residential Planned Development on December 18, 2017. The plans provide detail on the proposed project, number of units, stories, number of buildings, elevations, floor plans, and site parking.
California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)
The applicant has completed an initial study of the project, and the project is subject to an Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The initial study identified potentially significant impacts, which will be addressed by the EIR. The EIR is anticipated to be available for public review by the end of summer 2019.
