La Jolla Shores Planned District Advisory Board
Ch. Art. Div. §103.0302.2 La Jolla Shores Planned District Advisory Board
(a) La Jolla Shores Planned District Advisory Board Created
(1) There is hereby created a La Jolla Shores Planned District Advisory
Board which shall be composed of seven members who shall serve
without compensation. The members shall be appointed by the Mayor
and confirmed by the Council. The members shall serve two-year terms
and each member shall serve until his successor is duly appointed and
qualified. The members shall be appointed in such a manner that the
terms of not more than four members shall expire in any one year. The
expiration date shall be April 1. During April of each year, the Mayor
may designate one member as Chairman; however, in the absence of
such designation, the Board shall, on or after May 15, select a
Chairman from among its members.
(2) At the time of appointment and during incumbency five of the
seven-member board shall be resident property owners of the La Jolla
Shores Planned District. The sixth member shall be a resident of the
district but need not own property and the seventh member shall own
property in the district but need not be a resident. Members of the
Board shall be persons who shall be specifically qualified by reason of
interest, training or experience in art, architecture, land development,
landscape architecture, planning, urban design, or other relevant
business or profession to judge the effects of a proposed development
upon the desirability, property values, and development of surrounding
areas. At least one member of such Board shall be a registered
architect in the State of California.
(3) The Board may adopt rules of procedure to supplement those
contained within this Division. Four members shall constitute a quorum
for the transaction of business and a majority vote; and not less than
four affirmative votes shall be necessary to make any Board decision.
(4) The City Manager shall serve as Secretary of the Board and as an ex
officio member and maintain records of all official actions of the
Review Board. The Secretary shall not be entitled to vote.
(5) All officers of the City shall cooperate with the Board and render all
reasonable assistance to it.
(6) The Board shall render a report annually on March 31, or on request,
to the Mayor.
(b) Powers and Duties
It shall be the duty of the Advisory Board to review all applications for permits
referred to it including applications for Planned Development Permits for
residential development within the La Jolla Shores Planned District and to
submit its recommendations or comments on these matters in writing within 30
calendar days to the City Manager. When the California Environmental
Quality Act requires that an Environmental Impact Report be prepared in
conjunction with an application within the Planned District, the Advisory
Board shall review this report before submitting its recommendation to the
City Manager. It shall also recommend to the Planning Commission any
changes to the regulations, provided such changes are necessary for the proper
execution of the adopted plan, and to adopt rules of procedure to supplement
those contained within this division. The Advisory Board shall utilize
architectural criteria and design standards adopted by the City Council in
evaluating the appropriateness of any development for which a permit is
applied under this division.
