X Description: Staff is seeking direction from Council on these applications.

X 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 community.

X Recommendations: The Council:

1. 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. 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. 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]
