Q & A's on the RFQ
Questions and answers on the RFQ will be posted here as they are received. Please check for new postings as they are submitted and processed.
1) With the potential for the current zoning to be reclassified, what municipal zoning regulations should be referenced for confirmation of allowed density, yard requirements, parking, building heights, etc.? Although these specifics re: municipal zoning regulations are more appropriately addressed during the RFP phase of the development process, the City’s intent is to seek a Planned Development (PD) zoning district which includes the project site, and provides grouping of varied and compatible land uses that allows a project to be designed with the appropriate flexibility. The RFQ process seeks development submittals that include thoughtful, well-planned concepts which incorporatethe specifics of the RFQ Submission Requirements on pages 10-12 of the RFQ.
2) Are there specific design guidelines for the Pacifica Ocean Discovery Center (“PODC”)? For information on the Pacifica Ocean Discovery Center (PODC), please refer to the links in the Appendices on page 20 of the RFQ
3) Will the zoning for these parcels be revised to Planned Development (P-D) prior to site entitlements? The Required Entitlements section on page 13 of the RFQ states that all entitlements will be processed concurrently.
4) Will the General Plan/Local Coastal Land Use Plan be amended to Mixed-Use prior to site entitlements? The Required Entitlements section on page 13 of the RFQ states that all entitlements will be processed concurrently.
