PCPB board approved writing a letter supporting consolidation of any parcel or unit of land that does not conform to standards for minimum parcel size when lots/parcels have common ownership.
“We have small parcels that are going to create future headaches,” pointed out PCPB member Jerry Lohla, who added a letter has been sent requesting the city “identify all the missing small parcels and merge them if they meet the criteria for that merging.”
Lohla said about 50 such parcels in Point Loma have been informally identified as substandard. He added that two substandard-size parcels can only be merged if they have common ownership.
“This won't solve all of the problems, but this letter will remind the city that it should have been on top of this,” Lohla said noting the applicable lot merger ordinance has been in effect since 1989.
In other action:
• Matt Strabone, a candidate for assessor/recorder/county clerk, a city post up for election on June 5, introduced himself. “Public outreach is a lynchpin of my candidacy,” said Stabone, noting the position he is running for has jurisdiction over property taxes, birth certificates and public records.
“It's not the most high-profile office, but it touches the lives of everyone in San Diego County," said Strabone, adding, “My aim is to make the position more accessible, transparent and accountable.”
• PCPB board member Jim Hare introduced a motion from the group's LRP Committee to support an outreach policy with the city to encourage voluntary review submittals for multi-family projects prior to the issuance of permits. The group approved issuance of the support letter.
• City consultant Vic Salazar briefed the board on city Sewer and AC Water Group 764A project to replace 8,300 linear feet of sewer and 5,700 linear feet of water mains throughout the Peninsula.
