Code Enforcement Complaint Ordinance
Motion and Vote
 Fiscal Impact:  None.

Second Reading of Draft Ordinances for: PLN 2007-1243 / PLN 2007- 1197 / PLN 2007-1251 General Plan Amendment & Planned Development 7 – Atascadero Avenue Triangle / 6905 Navajoa Avenue (City of Atascdero / MLW Holdings, LLC / Atascadero Homeowners, LLC)
Motion and Vote

 Description:  General Plan Amendment to remove the park requirement from Master Plan of Development #12; a 9-unit Planned Development; and a 2-unit Planned Development with a private landscape feature. 
Fiscal Impact:  Based on findings from the Taussig Study, revenue from new residential development including property tax revenues, vehicle licensing fees, sales taxes, and other revenues are insufficient to cover the maintenance and emergency services costs of new development. Based on the revenue projections from the Taussig Study, the City has developed standard conditions of approval for new development projects that require the cost of maintenance and emergency services to be funded by the project through a combination of road assessment districts, landscape and lighting districts and community facilities districts (Conditions 8 and 9.)   Since there are no common facilities proposed with
these Planned Developments, and the private landscape feature will be maintained by the sole property owner, a Homeowners Association is not required.
 Recommendations:  Council: 
1. Adopt on second reading, by title only, Draft Ordinance A approving Zoning Map Amendment 2007-0140, changing the Atascadero Municipal Code Zoning Designation on Lot 1 of APN 030-283-005 from Recreation (L) to Residential Multi-family, with 16 units per acre RMF-16); and,
2. Adopt on second reading, by title only, Draft Ordinance B approving Zone Change 2007-0145 to allow a 9-unit PD-7 and Zone Change 2007-0146 to allow a 2-unit PD-7 based on findings. [Community Development]

Public Comment
Council discussion
Motion and Vote
 Disclosure of Ex Parte Communications
 Fiscal Impact:  Typically, commercial projects have a positive fiscal
impact on City revenues.  However, at this time, staff is unable to
speculate on the significance of this impact.  Part of the project’s EIR
  review will include a fiscal impact analysis.  The purpose of the
analysis will be to analyze all of the project’s costs and revenues and
provide the Council with a complete picture of the project’s fiscal
impacts on both the City of Atascadero and the local business
1. The City Council may direct staff to process one or both of the
project applications by adopting Draft Resolutions A and/or B.  This
action would include directing staff to return to the City Council for a
Specific Plan project boundary approval; 
2. The City Council may withhold authorization for staff to process one
or both of the project applications by adopting Draft Resolution C
and/or D.  Withholding authorization for staff to process the
applications does not deny the applications; 
3. The City Council may refer one or both of the applications back to
staff for additional analysis or clarification of specific issues.  The
Council should provide clear direction on issues that require
additional analysis.  [Community Development]
COMMUNITY FORUM:  (This portion of the meeting is reserved for persons wanting to address the Council on any matter not on this agenda and over which the Council has jurisdiction.  Speakers are limited to five minutes.  Please state your name for the record
