B. PUBLIC HEARINGS:
  1.  PLN 2007-1197 / PLN 2007-1251 - Master Plan of Development Amendment - Tentative Parcel Map (TPM) Reconsideration - Atascadero Avenue Triangle / 6905 Navajoa Avenue - (People’s Self Help Housing)      Motion and Vote
  • Ex-Parte Communications:
  • Fiscal Impact: Based on findings from the 2003 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 (CFD). Since there are no common facilities proposed with the project, the requirement for a Homeowners Association has been eliminated.
  • Recommendation:
    Planning Commission Recommends Council:

    Area 1

    1. Adopt draft Resolution A approving an amendment to Conditional Use Permit 2007-0208 (Master Plan of Development for 9-unit PD-7) based on findings and subject to Conditions of Approval and Mitigation Monitoring; and,

    2.
