Rancho Palos Verdes City Council
   

TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL

FROM: DIRECTOR OF PLANNING, BUILDING AND CODE ENFORCEMENT

DATE: MARCH 2, 2004

SUBJECT: VIEW RESTORATION PERMIT NO. 138 - APPEAL (APPELLANT/FOLIAGE OWNER: RANCHO PALOS VERDES ESTATES HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION (HOA), APPLICANT: MR. REGINAL QUALLS, 2 PASEO DE CASTANA)

Staff Coordinator: Tracyi Nelson, Senior View Restoration Coordinator

RECOMMENDATION:

Continue the public hearing to the May 4, 2004 City Council meeting.

BACKGROUND

City Council consideration of this View Restoration appeal was originally scheduled for the March 2, 2004 meeting. However, in consideration of two pending View Restoration appeal items scheduled for the March 2, 2004 City Council agenda, it was decided to continue this matter to a future City Council meeting. Staff contacted Kathy Campbell (appellant and HOA representative) to inform her of the proposal to continue the item. Mrs. Campbell informed Staff that due to the varying availability of a number of interested parties, she felt that the HOA could not attend the March 16, 2004 meeting. However, she stated that the HOA would be available to attend the May 4, 2004 Council meeting. A letter submitted to Staff on February 22, 2004 confirms that all interested parties of the HOA will be available to attend the May 4, 2004 (see attached).

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

To allow more time for the Council to review the background materials of the appeal, the December 9, 2003 PC Staff Report, the December 11, 2003 PC excerpt minutes (the date the PC meeting), and the appeal letter are attached for your review. The City Council Staff Report, which includes Staff’s and the City Attorney’s response to the appeal points, will be transmitted to the Council on April 20, 2004.

Respectfully submitted:

Joel Rojas,

Director of Planning, Building
