(Kathy Green)

Summary:  Special Use Permits for storage containers are valid for five years, and then must be renewed.  The applicant is requesting to continue the use of the existing storage containers in their present location. No changes are proposed to the storage containers.

 F-3       SUP-15-065* For Possible Action: To consider a request from Bethlehem Lutheran School (property owner: Bethlehem Lutheran School, (Agent: JP Copoulos) for a Special Use Permit to allow the addition of classrooms to an existing school and modification of the school site playground and outside sports areas on property zoned Single Family 6,000 (SF6), located at 1845 Mountain St., APN 001-111-33.  (Kathe Green) Late Info. Late Info 3

Summary:  The school has experienced growth and would like to modify the site to accommodate the additional students by relocating an existing playground and adding a sports court, changing a fence height on the north side, adding classrooms and modifying the use of some of the existing classrooms.

F-4       SUP-14-081(a)*  For Possible Action: To consider a request from WSCC, Inc. (property owner: Sanbar) for a Special Use Permit to increase the allowed wall signage from 15 square feet to 140 square feet, on property zoned General Commercial (GC), located at 2765 Hwy 50 East, APN 008-312-12.  (Susan Dorr Pansky)

Summary:  The applicant received approval for a Medical Marijuana dispensary from the Planning Commission on October 29, 2014. At that time, the applicant had not determined signage needs for the proposed use. The applicant is requesting modification of the Special Use Permit to allow two seven foot by ten foot building signs for a total of 140 square feet, which exceeds the allowed maximum for Medical Marijuana Establishments.

F-5(a)  SUP-15-066*  For Possible Action: To consider a request from Hop & Mae Adams Foundation (property owner: Adams 308 N Curry LLC) for a Special Use Permit to allow an increase in permitted height in the Downtown Mixed-Use (DTMU) zoning district and to allow the use of property split zoned DTMU and Residential Office (RO) with uses per the DTMU development standards, on property split-zoned DTMU and RO, located at 308 N. Curry St., APN 003-228-01.  (Susan Dorr Pansky)

Summary:  The east half of the subject property is zoned DTMU and the west half is zoned RO. The applicant is proposing to remodel and add onto the existing building on the site, which is in the DTMU zoning district, adding residential units on a third floor and adding other commercial floor space. The proposed development will exceed the permitted “building envelope” height per the DTMU development standards, Division 6, with a total building height of approximately 50 feet where 47 feet is the permitted maximum height. The proposed development would use the western portion of the property for parking and additional residential units using the DTMU standards for parking and landscaping.

F-5(b)  VAR-15-067*  For Possible Action: To consider a request from Hop & Mae Adams Foundation (property owner: Adams 308 N Curry LLC) for a Variance to reduce the required front and street-side yard setbacks from 10 feet to 0 feet for the construction of a residential duplex and garages on property zoned Residential Office (RO), and to reduce the required setback from a commercial development to a residential zoning district from 30 feet to 0 feet for an addition on the west side of the existing structure within the Downtown Mixed-Use (DTMU) zoning district, on property split-zoned DTMU and RO, located at 308 N. Curry St., APN 003-228-01.  (Susan Dorr Pansky)

Summary:  The east half of the subject property is zoned DTMU and the west half is zoned RO. The applicant is proposing to remodel and add onto the existing building on the site, adding residential units on a third floor and adding other commercial floor space. The development standards require a 30-foot setback from buildings in the DTMU zoning district to the RO zoning district. However, the site is being developed as a single property with the DTMU-RO zoning district boundary splitting the property. The proposed develop would have the new buildings fronting Telegraph Street and Nevada Street with parking on the interior of the property.

F-6       TPUD-15-069  For Possible Action: To CONTINUE to the September 30, 2015 Planning Commission meeting, a request from Project One (property owner: Jackson Fam Liv Trust 5/25/00) for a Tentative Planned Unit Development of 41 single family detached residential lots, including a Special Use Permit to allow a residential use on property zoned General Commercial (GC) and Variances to allow reduction in minimum lot size, reduction of required parking, reduction of required open space and reduction of required periphery setback, on property located at 250 Eagle Station Lane, APN 009-123-38 & 39.  (Susan Dorr Pansky)

Summary:  A property owner notification error occurred for this item after the Notice of Public Hearing was published. Therefore, the Planning Commission cannot take action to make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors regarding this application and must continue the item to the next Planning Commission meeting.

The applicant is proposing a Planned Unit Development on a 3.66 acre infill site on Eagle Station Lane east of South Carson Street.
