CALL TO ORDER:
APPROVAL OF AGENDA:
1. Council Policy Items (Excerpt Minutes):
COMMENTS FROM THE AUDIENCE (regarding non-agenda items):
Request: A request to allow the construction of a new 5,409 square foot (garage included), two-story, single-family residence on an unimproved lot. The proposed residence will be constructed off the existing building pad at a height of 26’, as measured from the highest pre-construction grade elevation (752.00’) of the building pad, to the top of the highest roof ridgeline (778.00’) of the proposed structure. Additionally the applicants propose to conduct 819 cubic yards of associated grading (combined cut and fill calculations) and construct a new 6’ high combination fence/wall along the front property line with a Minor Exception Permit.
Request: A request to allow the construction of a new, 1,400 square foot cabana, as well as a new swimming pool and spa, within the City’s designated Coastal District. The proposed structure will be constructed at a height of 16 feet, as measured from the lowest adjacent finished grade, and will provide restroom facilities for both the general public and hotel guests.
RECESS (approximately 8:30 P.M.):PUBLIC HEARINGS:
Request: a request to allow the construction of a first and second story addition with a total area of 822 square feet to an existing 3,970 square-foot two-story, single-family residence at a proposed height of 26’.
Request: A request to allow 767 square-foot addition to an existing single-family residence. The applicant is also requesting approval of a Grading Permit for two (2) retaining walls measuring 3 and 5-feet in height and a Variance to permit the construction of the proposed addition over an extreme slope.
Request: A request to allow the Brighton Gardens entitlements, originally approved in 1999 for Marriott, to be revised to allow the construction of a new assisted living facility for senior citizens, on a 4.57-acre lot located within the City’s Institutional (I) zoning district. The revisions proposed by BelmontCorp, the new project applicant, involve no changes to the height of the structure (which remains a three-story structure measuring 35 feet above finished grade), nor the number of units (a total of 122 units, of which 98 units will be used for assisted living and 24 units will be used for dementia patients). The modifications proposed by the applicant consist of: an increase in the structure’s floor area from 74,774 square feet to 94,000 square feet; a reduction in the total length of the building along Crestridge Road by 17 feet; an increase in the total depth of the building by 18 feet; and, an increase in the amount of grading from 160,000 cubic yards to 163,060 cubic yards. The modified earth movement is not a balanced operation, as previously approved for the Marriott Brighton Gardens project, as it consists of 89,500 cubic yards of cut, 73,560 cubic yards of fill and 15,940 cubic yards of export. In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the Environmental Assessment is for a Supplement to Final Environmental Impact Report No. 27. Pursuant to Section 17.78.040 of the City’s Municipal Code, the project modifications require City Council approval for a revision to the existing Conditional Use Permit No. 195 and Grading Permit No. 1903.
Recommendation: Staff Recommends that the Planning Commission adopt P.C. Resolution No. 2002-___: recommending that the City Council certify the Supplement to Final Environmental Impact Report No. 27; and adopt P.C. Resolution No. 2002-___: recommending that the City Council approve, with conditions, Conditional Use Permit No. 195, Revision "A" and Grading Permit No. 1903, Revision "A". (Case No. ZON2001-00055).
