The certified farmers marketwould occur once each week on sunday mornings. Set-up of vending booths wouldcommence at Sam sunday morning, and all vendors and their equipment would beremoved by 2pm Sunday afternoon. The vending area, which will occupy 50 to 60public parking spaces within the Alamitos Bay Marina Basin one public parkinglot, is comprised of vendors' booths, tents and trucks, and portable publictoilets. The vendors will be permitted by the City to sell fresh fruits and vegetables,eggs, cut flowers, decorative plants, seafood, honey, baked goods, and otheritems approved by the Department of Parks, creation and Marine (Exhibit#4). Customers of the proposed farmers' market would park in the publicparking spaces located in the marina parking lots. No permanent improvementsare proposed. There is no charge to customers to access the market or thepublic parking spaces.The farmers' market has been operating on a temporary basis since November of1997 under a temporary event exclusion issued by Commission staff. Thetemporary event exclusion is valid for a limited term which is due to expireon March a, 1998, or at the time that the commission acts on this permitapplication, whichever occurs first. Pursuant to the coastal Commission'sGuidelines for the Exclusion of Temporary Events from Coastal Development Permit Requirements, a Coastal Development Permit is required in order for theproposed farmers' market to operate on an ongoing basis because it does not

S-97-292Page 5 qualify as a temporary event of limited duration. According to the CoastalCommission's Guidelines for the Exclusion of Temporary Events from CoastalDevelopment Permit Requirements, a temporary event of limited duration isdefined as an event which does not exceed a four month period on anintermittent basis. The applicant proposes to hold a weekly farmers' marketon an ongoing and permanent basis.The commission's guidelines for temporary events apply in the area of theproposed event because the site is located within the commission's area oforiginal jurisdiction. The Alamitos Bay Basin One public parking lot, wherethe project is located, is constructed entirely on former tidelands subject tothe original jurisdiction of the Commission. Because the proposed project islocated in the Commission's area of original jurisdiction, the requiredCoastal Development Permit must be issued by the Commission.As stated above, the proposed farmers' market is located on the waterfrontwithin the Basin One parking lot for the Alamitos Bay Marina {Exhibit #3).Recreational boat slips occupy Basins one and Two directly adjacent the site{Exhibit #5). A public walkway and the marina bulkhead separate the parkinglot from the waters of the marina. The proposed project will not interferewith access to and along the public walkway or the marina docks. According to the City, the Basin One parking lot is comprised of 128 reservedboat owner parking spaces, 290 free unreserved public parking spaces, and 13handicap parking spaces. Approximately 60 of the unreserved public parkingspaces will be occupied by the proposed farmers' market on each Sundaymorning. In addition, the City estimates that the customers of the proposedfarmers' market will occupy about 100 of the public parking spaces. The BasinOne parking lot also provides parking for patrons of the Crab Pot Restaurant(Coastal Development Permit 5-97-310), patrons of party boat cruises, andoverflow parking for the Seaport Village shopping center {Exhibits #3&5).The Crab Pot Restaurant, located about two hundred feet south of the site, isalso located in the Basin one parking lot (see Coastal Development Permit5-97-310 (Crab Pot)]. The Seaport Village shopping center and other existingcommercial uses are located near the site in the Alamitos Bay Marina area.The Seaport Village shopping center, located about five hundred feet south ofthe proposed project, is the largest commercial use in the area (Exhibit #3).seaport Village is a commercial retail and entertainment complex with amaritime theme. Seaport Village has its own 330 space public parking lot toserve its three restaurants and many retail establishments. [See CoastalDevelopment Permits S-92-050 (City of Long Beach) & S-92-126 (Long Moose)]. North of the project site, between the Basin Two and Basin Three parking lotsof the Alamitos Bay Marina, is the Marine Bazaar commercial canter (Exhibit#3). The Marine Bazaar building is another commercial center in AlamitosBay. It contains one restaurant, yacht sales, and other retail uses. Theparking for the Marine Bazaar center is supplied by the Alamitos Bay MarinaBasin Two and Basin Three public parking lots [See coastal Development Permit5-92-314 (City of Long Beach)] The proposed project, Seaport Village, the Marine Bazaar building, the CrabPot Restaurant, and the Alamitos Bay public parking lots are all located on

5-97-292Page 6filled tidelands which are State tidelands located within the commission'sarea of retained permit jurisdiction. The City administers the statetidelands under the Tidelands Trust Agreements with the State of california.The City leases the commercial sites to commercial operators under the termsof specific contracts.B.Public Access/Parkingone of the basic goala of the Coastal Act is to maximize public acceas to thecoast. One of the methods commonly used' to maximize public access to thecoast is to ensure that there is enough parking available for visitors of thecoast. The Commission has consistently found that a direct relationshipexists between the provision of adequate parking and availability of publicaccess to the coast. Section 30252 requires that new development shouldmaintain and enhance public access to the coast by providing adequate parkingfacilities.Section 30252 of the Coastal Act states, in part:The location and amount of new development should maintain and enhancepublic access to the coast by (4) providing adequate parkingfacilities or providing substitute means of serving the development withpublic transportation The Coastal Act also requires that development itself does not interfere withthe public's right to access the coast.Section 30210 of the Coastal Act states: In carrying out the requirement of Section 4 of Article X of theCalifornia constitution, maximum access, which shall be conspicuouslyposted, and recreational opportunities shall be provided for all thepeople consistent with public safety needs and the need to protect publicrights, rights of private property owners, and natural resource areasfrom overuse.The proposed project is located entirely on public tidelands located seawardof the first public road. The proposed project involves the establishment ofa weekly farmers' market on the waterfront. ·,The primary coastal access issueof the proposed project is public access to the waterfront and the publicparking supply that provides such access.A lack of adequate parking for commercial uaea near the coaat can reduce thepublic'a ability to access the coast by causing a shortage of parking spacesfor coastal visitors. Therefore, the applicant must show that there is anadequate parking supply to meet the increased demand caused by the proposedproject on Sunday mornings.The proposed farmers' marketwithin the Basin One parkingBecause the proposed projectprivate property, the publicis a commercial use located on the waterfrontlot for the Alamitos Bay Marina (Exhibit #3).is located on public tidelands, and not onparking lot is the only parking supply for

5-97-292Page 7 customers and vendors. The City's agreement with the operators of theproposed farmers market permits the market to utilize up to 60 unreservedpublic parking spaces in the Basin One parking lot for the vendors to set uptheir sales areas on Sunday mornings (Exhibit #4). The City estimates thatthe customers of the proposed farmers market will occupy approximately 100 ofthe adjacent public parking spaces during peak periods.The Basin One parking lot currently provides parking for boat owners withslips in the marina, recreational visitors to the waterfront, patrons of theCrab Pot Restaurant, patrons of party boat cruises, and overflow parking forthe Seaport Village shopping center (Exhibit #5). The additional parkingdemands of the proposed project could have the potential to overburden theparking supply on Sunday mornings at the expense of the existing permitteduses. The public access policies of the Coastal Act require that the publicparking supply be protected in order to ensure that the public is able tovisit waterfront. There is no question of whether there is enough parking near the site to meetthe demands of the proposed project. There are at over 1,000 free unreservedpublic parking spaces in the immediate vicinity of the project in the BasinOne, Two and Three public parking lots (Exhibit #5) . The Basin One parkinglot itself is comprised of 128 reserved boat owner parking spaces, 290 freeunreserved public parking spaces, and 13 handicap parking spaces. The BasinTwo and Three parking lots, located north of Basin one parking lot, containover 1,500 additional parking spaces (some are reserved for boat owners) for atotal of 1,810 parking spaces (Exhibit #5).However, the public parking supply is shared by all the people who visit theAlamitos Bay Marina for its mix of recreational and commercial activities.The question is: will the increased parking demand generated by the proposedproject on Sunday mornings negatively impact coastal access opportunities byusurping the public parking supplies upon which other uses in the marina aredependant?To answer this question, the applicant has submitted a Parking Study forAlamitos Bay Marina, prepared by the City of Long Beach and Stevens/GarlandAssociates, Inc. (Dec. 1992). Although the is five years old,there has not been any significant changes or development in the area whichhave significantly changed the pattern of parking in the area.The study supports the City's conclusion that there is sufficient parking inthe Basin One parking lot to supply the existing uses as well as the proposedproject on Sunday mornings. In regards to the parking supply required by theboat owners with slips in the marina, customers of the proposed farmers market would not be able to park in the 128 reserved boat owner parking spacesin the Basin One parking lot or in the reserved boat owner spaces in the otherlots because they are reserved for permit holders. Boat owner parking spacesare clearly identified by red paint markings. The parking study concludesthat there is adequate parking for the boat owners. The remainder of the Basin one parking lot is used by marina visitors who donot have permits for parking in the boat owner parking spaces. In the BasinOne public parking lot there are 290 free unreserved public parking spaces and

5-97-292Page 813 handicap parking spaces. These 303 public parking spaces are used bycustomers of the existing commercial uses in the area and people visiting themarina to sightsee, stroll, or go on a boat ride. The public parking spacesare available at no charge to the user. There are no parking meters orparking fees. Free parking encourages people to use this coastal area whetherthey are shopping or just sightseeing. lThe City parking study shows that the Basin one public parking lot wasunderutilized when parking counts were taken on two summer weekends in.l992.on July 11-12, 1992 and August 1-2, 1992, the use of Marina Basin One parkinglot never exceeded 59\ of its capacity. "Based on this parking study and onthe ongoing observations of the parking lot, the City concludes that there isample parking in the Marina Basin One public parking lot to meet the demandsof the existing recreational and commercial uses in the area, as well as theparking demands of the proposed project. Therefore, the conclusion is thatpublic access to the marina will not be negatively impacted by the proposedproject because there is adequate parking available for the existing andproposed uses, even on Sunday mornings during the summer.Additionally, the City has studied the parking lot use while the farmers'market has been operating on a temporary basis since November of 1997. TheCity conducted a parking lot use survey on two Sunday mornings in November1997 and found that there were hundreds of empty spaces available during everymorning hour.Therefore, Commission staff agrees with the City's conclusio
