The property owner, Cynthia Gustin, and her contractor, Larry Gates, were present to discuss the plans. Planning Intern Mizokami presented the project.

The house meets current development standards. Staff received no calls or letters of opposition from neighbors. Staff does not have any concerns with the project, and recommends approval subject to the standard plan check condition.

Mr. Gates, contractor for the project, noted that there is an easement along the rear property line to further illustrate additional open space beyond the rear of the property. The addition would be well hidden from sight both from the front and the rear. Committee Member Mullis asked if the exterior colors and materials of the new construction would match that of the existing house. Mr. Gates replied that they would.

The Committee had no other concerns and made a motion to approved with the following conditions:

  1. All corrections generated through the plan check and inspection processes are incorporated by reference as conditions of approval. This will include any requirements generated by the Engineering Division.

The applicant, Dennis Dascanio and his architect, Daniel Dascanio were present to discuss the request. Assistant Planner Sowers presented the project. She said that the applicant is requesting a reduction in the front yard setback from the required 35 feet to 28 feet in order to construct a pool house and garage. The applicant is restricted from using the rear yard because of its grade. Paulette Marshall, property owner of the adjacent property at 315 Marion Boulevard, was in attendance to express her support of the project. Staff recommends approval with the following conditions:

  1. Provide evidence of access to a fire hydrant within 150 feet from the street to any remote areas of the building or sprinkle all of the building.
  2. All corrections generated through the plan check and inspection processes are incorporated by reference as conditions of approval. This will include any requirements generated by the Engineering Division including, but not limited to, potential street improvements.
  3. A deed restriction will be required prior to the issuance of building permits specifying that the detached habitable building is not a dwelling unit and that the property can have only one kitchen.
  4. All exterior materials and colors used to construct the new addition shall match the existing house.

MOTION made SECONDED, and CARRIED by all members present, to APPROVE PRJ04-00028 - ZON04-00007 as conditioned (Resolution No. 352).

PRJ04-00033 - ZON04-00008 - APPLICANT AND PROPERTY OWNER: GAYLE MARTIN.

A request for a 20% reduction in the rear yard setback, from 15'-0" to 12'-0" on property located at 1042 El Dorado Drive (between Valley View Drive and Highland Avenue, approximately 540 feet north of El Dorado and Valley View Drives) (R-1-7.2 zone) (Categorically exempt under Section 15305 of CEQA Guidelines).

The applicants, Victor and Gayle Martin, were present to discuss the request. Planning Intern Mizokami presented the project. The applicant is requesting to reduce the rear yard setback from 15 feet to 12 feet to construct a new 456-square-foot single story family room addition. The house currently meets development standards. Staff would like to verify the dimensions of the proposed fireplace; the maximum the Code would allow the fireplace to encroach into the setback is 18 inches as long as it is not wider than 8 feet. Mrs. Martin said that she does not know what the fireplace dimensions are because the location is not yet certain. Committee Member Tabatabaee stated it might be better to move the fireplace to another location. Planning Intern Mizokami stated that he received two telephone calls from neighbors to the rear and across the street. Neither neighbor opposed the project. Staff recommends approval subject to the following condition:

  1. All corrections generated through the plan check and inspection processes are incorporated by reference as conditions of approval. This will include any requirements generated by the Engineering Division.

MOTION made SECONDED, and CARRIED by all members present, to APPROVE PRJ04-00033 - ZON04-00008 as conditioned (Resolution No. 353).

There is a 10-day appeal period where any action by this Committee can be appealed to the Planning Commission and ultimately to the City Council. The request may be approved subject to conditions. Minutes of the hearing and a Resolution will be prepared.

PRJ04-00057 - ZON04-00010. APPLICANT AND PROPERTY OWNER: DARCY PENDARVIS.

A request for a 20% reduction in the rear yard setback, from 15' to 12' on property located at 1500 West Hill Avenue (approximately 400 feet east of Hill Avenue and Pacific Drive) (R-1-7.2 zone) (Categorically exempt under Section 15301 of CEQA Guidelines).

Present were applicants Darcy and Brian Pendarvis to discuss the request. Planning Intern Mizokami presented the project. The applicant is requesting a reduction in the rear yard setback from 15 feet to 12 feet to construct a 280 square-foot new single story bedroom to an existing house. The existing 2-car garage plus one open space meets current parking requirements for 5 bedrooms. The house also meets the remaining development standards. Staff received three telephone calls from neighbors; none opposed the project. It was not clear whether the carport was legally permitted. The carport would need to meet current Building Code if it was not legally permitted. Mr. Pendarvis said if the carport had been built without a permit, he would tear it down, and probably would not attempt to bring it up to Code. Staff recommends approval with the following conditions:

  1. All corrections generated through the plan check and inspection processes are incorporated by reference as conditions of approval. This will include any requirements generated by the Engineering Division.
  2. Investigation of the existing carport prior to issuance of Building Permit.

MOTION made SECONDED, and CARRIED by all members present, to APPROVE PRJ04-00057 - ZON04-00010 as conditioned (Resolution No. 354).

There is a 10-day appeal period where any action by this Committee can be appealed to the Planning Commission and ultimately to the City Council. The request may be approved subject to conditions. Minutes of the hearing and a Resolution will be prepared.
