COMMENTS FROM THE AUDIENCE (regarding non-agenda items):
Request: An appeal of the Director's decision to allow two (2) after-the-fact retaining walls measuring 4’-6" and 2’-6" in height. The walls are within three (3) feet of each other, therefore, they are considered one (1) seven-foot high retaining wall.
Recommendation: Staff recommends that the Planning Commission refrain from adopting the resolution memorializing the Commission’s previous action on the appeal to allow Staff to investigate new information presented by the applicant that may require re-consideration of the Director’s original decision.
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.
Recommendation: 1) Review the proposed turn-around design alternatives, and select the optimal design; and 2) If deemed appropriate, adopt P.C. Resolution No. 2002-__, approving, with conditions, Height Variation No. 899, Grading Permit No. 2151, Minor Exception Permit No. 573 and Variance No. 488.
Request: A request to allow an additional 767 square-feet of living space to an existing single-family one-story residence. The proposed addition will be on the west side of the residence and under the 16-foot maximum height limit, which is required for new additions to one-story single-family residences. The applicant is also requesting approval of two (2) retaining walls located in the side yard of the residence.
Recommendation: Staff recommends that the Planning Commission adopt P.C. Resolution No. 2002-__, approving, with conditions, the requested Conditional Use Permit and Grading Permit (Case No. ZON2002-00010).
RECESS (approximately 8:30 P.M.):
Request: A request to construct a 314 square-foot second story addition to an existing one-story single-family residence, at a proposed maximum height of 22’-6" as measured from the highest existing grade covered by structure to the highest ridgeline of the structure and 22’-6" as measured from the lowest foundation covered by the structure to ridge. The proposed addition will be at the front of the existing residence.
Recommendation: Staff recommends that the Planning Commission adopt P.C. Resolution No. 2002-__, approving, with conditions, the requested Height Variation application (Case No. ZON2002-00183).
Request: A request to allow two-(2) trellises, 499 square-feet in size, to be constructed in the rear yard area parallel to the west and east side property lines measuring 9-feet in height as measured from the highest point covered by the structure to the top of the trellises. Further, the proposed trellises will cover two- (2) bird aviary’s, which will house various types of exotic birds. The keeping of exotic birds requires the approval of an Exotic Animal Permit.
Recommendation: Staff recommends that the Planning Commission adopt P.C. Resolution No. 2002-__, denying, without prejudice, the requested Variance and Exotic Animal Permit (Case No. ZON2002-00296).
Request: Review the City’s Annual Report to the State regarding the status of the City’s General Plan.
