CALL TO ORDER
PUBLIC OPEN TIME: Time for comments from members of the public on issues not on this Planning Commission agenda. (Limited to 3 minutes per person)
APPROVAL OF AGENDA:
PUBLIC HEARING: 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 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).
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, Design Reviews, Tentative Subdivision Maps, Parcel Maps, Variances, and Conditional Use 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.
1. 14 Matilda Avenue – Design Review and Fence Permit – PL23-5177 (Weiss)
Design Review and Fence Permit applications to demolish the existing 1,146 square foot single-family house with garage, and construct a new two-story 1,971.5 square foot home with a 315 square foot attached garage, deck and new landscaping on a 5,652 square foot lot in the RS-6 District. A Fence Permit is required for relocating the existing retaining wall within 12 inches of the existing northern common property line fence for 14 feet of length of this existing fence. This portion of the fence would be 11 feet high, as measured from the base of the retaining wall to the top of the existing fence, whereas the maximum height allowed by code is 7 feet. The proposed project has been determined to be exempt from further environmental review under Section 15303(a) (New Construction) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines.
