A Draft Negative Declaration (No. 09-01) has been prepared to analyze the potential environmental impacts associated with a request to construct an approximately 116,670 sq. ft. convalescent facility with 144-beds within 124 rooms on an approximately 3.38 acre site located at 17200 Goldenwest Street, Huntington Beach (east side of Goldenwest, between Warner Avenue and Betty Drive). The project applicant is proposing to amend the existing General Plan floor area ratio (FAR) designation from 0.35 maximum FAR (F1) to 1.0 maximum FAR (F3) to be consistent with the Zoning FAR of 1.0 and to allow for the proposed floor area.

Approximately 70 people will be employed within the facility and a maximum of 36 employees per shift at peak times at the facility. The maximum proposed height is 38’-11” and three-stories but tapers down to a maximum of 10’-6” within 45 ft. of the southerly property line, adjacent to residential uses.
