Summary: The subject property is a corner lot.

Fences within setbacks may be permitted in excess of the ordinance requirements by approval of a Special Use Permit.

G.2 SUP-17-217* For Possible Action: To consider a request for a Special Use Permit to construct a detached garage that results in accessory structures that exceed five percent of the lot area and exceeds 50 percent, but not more than 75 percent, of the size of the primary structure, on property zoned Conservation Reserve, located at 5371 Corrinne Ct, APN 008-816-21. (Kathe Green, kgreen@carson.org)

Summary: The applicant is requesting to construct a 2,625 square foot detached garage building on the subject property. The square footage of accessory buildings would be 71% of the size of the primary structure and 5.95% of the lot area. An Administrative Permit is required for the square footage of the accessory structures to exceed 50% but not more than 75% of the size of the main structure, but detached accessory structures exceeding 5% of the lot area requires Special Use Permit review and approval. The applicant has elected to combine the two reviews into one.

G.3 SUP-15-079-02* For Possible Action: To consider a request for a revision to a Special Use Permit for an accessory structure that exceeds 75 percent of the size of the primary building, specifically revising Conditions of Approval relative to a requirement for landscaping to screen the structure from the street and adjacent properties, a size limitation of 1200 square feet for the accessory structure, a requirement for removal of two shed structures, and a requirement that unregistered and inoperable vehicles not be stored outside the structure. The property is zoned Single Family One Acre (SF1A), and located at 4589 Silver Sage Drive, APN 009-176-05. (Kathe Green, kgreen@carson.org)    LATE MATERIALS

Summary: The applicant is requesting to revise the conditions of approval associated with the Special Use Permit issued on September 30, 2015, so as to construct a 1,500 square foot detached garage/shop building on the subject property. This accessory structure will be in addition to two existing accessory structures already located on the property. A Special Use Permit is required for the cumulative square footage of the accessory structures to exceed 75 percent of the size of the main structure.

G.4 TSM-17-184 For Possible Action: To make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors regarding a Tentative Subdivision Map application from Blackstone Development Group Inc. to create a 209 lot subdivision on approximately 58.5 acres within the Lompa Ranch North Specific Plan Area on property approved for Single Family 6000 (SF6) zoning, located at 2200 E. Fifth Street, APN 010-041-71. (Hope Sullivan, hsullivan@carson.org)

(Lee Plemel, lplemel@carson.org)

Summary: The proposed ordinance is intended to clarify sign regulations for medical marijuana establishments and marijuana establishments by adding the sign standards directly into the regulations pertaining to such establishments rather than referring to sign standards elsewhere in the city code. The proposed ordinance would continue to limit signs for medical marijuana establishments and marijuana establishments to a size consistent with office uses, which is less than for other retail uses, and to clarify that each business at a given location is entitled to a certain amount of sign area.
