The City Council this week unanimously adopted an ordinance add animal services to the list of uses allowed on the land in the Boeing Specific Plan area. The council also approved a conditional use permit to let Los Alamitos Animal Hospital to have a veterinary hospital at 2365 Seal Beach Boulevard, in suites 104 and 105. The hospital will be moving to Seal Beach.

The decision followed a public hearing. No one spoke out against the project.

Animal Hospital owner Stefan Korzeniowski said the hospital had outgrown the Los Alamitos location. He confirmed for the council that the hospital would be relocating to Seal Beach.

The Planning Commission approved both the text amendment to the specific plan and the CUP for the animal hospital on May 20, according to the staff report by Interim Community Development Director Steve Fowler.

The zone text amendment simply added animal services to the list of land uses allowed in the Boeing Integrated Defense Systems Specific Plan, provided the city issues a conditional use permit. But changes to a specific plan need City Council approval.

The proposed animal hospital would operate inside a 3,000 square foot building that already exists, according to Fowler’s report.

The hospital would be open 7 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday-Friday, and 7 a.m.-noon, Saturday. According to Fowler’s report, the hospital would not provide 24-hour emergency services.

“Animal services to be provided at this location will consist mainly of exams along with occasional surgical procedures and grooming,” the report said.

The hospital would be required to provide one parking space for 300 square feet, according to Fowler’s report.
