Title: Rofael Marina and Caretaker Facility

Applicant: Mike Adams, Michael C. Adams Associates

Location: 16926 Park Ave.

Report Summary

Draft Recirculated Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) No. 13-008 analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with a request to allow the development of a public marina on a 6,179 square foot property located at the terminus of Park Avenue in Huntington Harbour. The proposed improvements include a 66 ft. long and 5 ft. wide community dock area and a two-story building with a 508 sq. ft. marina office and public restroom on the first floor and a one-bedroom 565 sq. ft. caretaker’s unit with a 249 sq. ft. balcony on the second floor. The site will include a 441 sq. ft. two-car garage, five surface parking spaces, and three bicycle parking spaces. The project requires approval of a Coastal Development Permit and a Conditional Use Permit.

The proposed marina is designed as a single shared dock facility to cater to small watercrafts such as stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, and small sailboats which can be carried to the dock. A floating pedestrian ramp/walkway will provide public access to the water’s edge. The community dock will be available for public use; individual slips and private rental will not be available. No launch fees or parking fees are proposed at this time. The marina will not include fueling facilities or a launch ramp for large boats. The marina will have limited hours of operation, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily. The full time caretaker’s quarters will allow for 24 hour supervision of the facility. Access to the project is proposed via Park Avenue and will require ingress/egress easements over two residential properties.

Project Location: 16926 Park Avenue, Huntington Beach CA 92649 (terminus of Park Avenue, east of Pacific Coast Highway)
