San Marino City Council Extends Moratorium

By Krista Daly

San Marino City Council extended a moratorium prohibiting the approval of any type of permit to develop on specific properties that are unclear as to whether it is commercial or residential. The moratorium is in place for up to one year, but council directed staff to get it done in six months.

“We’re getting there,” said Planning and Building Director Aldo Cervantes. The original 45-day moratorium was adopted on July 25, 2014 and was extended another 10 months and 15 days to sort out discrepancies over several properties that were designated “commercial” in the Land Use Element of the city’s General Plan yet Zoned as “R-1.”

Cervantes said in the time provided so far they have narrowed down their options, which could be changing the zoning from R-1 to C-1, changing the General Plan land use designation to residential or amending the coming ordinance to address the specific properties affected.
