Contrary to misleading information on social media, the answer is no. The City recently mailed a courtesy notice to certain Coronado property owners about a Draft Environmental Impact Report released by the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority. The environmental report is related to the creation of the Naval Air Station North Island Draft Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan.
If adopted, the Draft Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan will have zoning implications on more than 1,000 existing residential units and commercial properties here in Coronado. The draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) concludes that the Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan will “result in significant and unavoidable impacts to land use/planning in the City of Coronado.” Although these are not the City’s documents, notices were sent out because it is important for Coronado property owners to be aware of documents that will affect their properties.
The City is working on its own comments in response to the documents. Individuals can make comments. Both the draft Environmental Impact Report and the Draft Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan are available for public review through Feb. 7. There are review copies at City Hall and the Library.
The following are links to the documents:
