APPROVAL OF AGENDA:
Council Policy Items (Excerpt Minutes):
COMMENTS FROM THE AUDIENCE (regarding non-agenda items):
Request: A request to revise Height Variation No. 884, which was approved on August 24, 1999 for the construction of a new 6,696 square foot two-story residence measuring 25-feet in overall height. Due to an incorrect survey, the new residence was constructed at an unapproved location. Thus, the revision and tract map amendment request is to allow a reduction in the required setback from 15-feet to 5-feet between the existing residence and the trail easement along the rear, thereby allowing the residence to remain in its current location. In addition, the request is to allow two balcony support columns that are greater than 30-inches in height to encroach into the established BGR (building/grading restriction) line.
(This item was continued from the September 14, 2004 and October 26, 2004 Planning Commission meetings)
Recommendation: Staff recommends that the Planning Commission adopt P.C. Resolution No. 2004-__, conditionally approving Case No. ZON2004-00409 for a revision to Height Variation No. 884, and adopt P.C. Resolution No. 2004-__, recommending approval of Amendment No. 2 of Tract 31617 to the City Council.
Request: A request to trim and/or remove foliage located at 4137 Admirable Drive, in order to restore views from 4132, 4139, 4140 Exultant Drive.
