Former Mayor and General Plan Advisory Chair Nancy Gardner to address housing mandates

Here are the questions and comments being bandied about: How will the state’s housing mandates be incorporated in the City of Newport Beach’s General Plan? The city is currently amending the General Plan to include the 4,845 new housing units, as well as update it to reflect the current resident vision of the city’s future. How will the city do that and maintain the quality of life enjoyed by Newport Beach residents? How will traffic and environmental impacts be addressed in this plan? And, how will your neighborhood be affected?

To find the answers to these and more, the community is invited to come hear former Mayor Nancy Gardner, who also serves as the General Plan Advisory Committee Chair, tell in detail, how her committee will create the city’s new General Plan and incorporate these housing mandates.
