DISCLOSURE OF EX PARTE COMMUNICATIONS: Prior to a project hearing Planning Commission Members must disclose any communications they have had on any quasi-judicial agenda items. This includes, but is not limited to, Tentative Subdivision Maps, Parcel Maps, Variances, Conditional Use Permits, and Planned Development Permits. This does not disqualify the Planning Commission Member from participating and voting on the matter, but gives the public and applicant an opportunity to comment on the ex parte communication.
(For each of the following items, the public will be given an opportunity to speak. After a staff report, the Chair will open the public hearing and invite the applicant or applicant’s representative to make any comments. Members of the public will be invited to provide testimony to the Commission following the applicant. Speakers should state their name and address for the record and can address the Commission for three minutes. After all public comments have been received, the public hearing will be closed, and the Commission will discuss the item and take appropriate action(s).)

4255 El Camino Real, Atascadero, CA 93422 APN 029-261-021 (San Luis Obispo County)
The project consists of an application for a Conditional Use Permit to allow the reinstatement of a legal, non-conforming use (auto dealer/new and used) and a Variance to allow an auto dealer on a lot size of 0.22 acres, where 1 acre minimum is required. The project is brought forward for consideration because there was a gap in the period of time for continuing the use (more than six months.) General Plan Designation: General Commercial Zoning District: Commercial Retail
Proposed Environmental Determination:
Based on an analysis of the proposed use, the project will be Exempt from CEQA Section 15301 – Existing Facilities. Class 1 consists of the operation, leasing, or minor alteration of existing facilities, including minor repairs with little or no expansion of use. The prior use was an auto dealer; the same use as proposed.
