Agenda Item Summary:
(Update January 31, 2020) This item was continued from the January 23, 2020 Planning Commission meeting to allow the applicant to meet with staff and submit a revised plan. On January 28, 2020, the applicant met with staff and subsequently submitted a revised site plan showing revised angled parking in front of the building, additional landscaping along the north lot line, and cloth slats on the west property line fence. The revised parking plan changes the proposed Exception request to reduce the parking required from 63 spaces to 27 parking spaces in lieu of the request for a reduction to 20 parking spaces. The angled parking maintains seven parking spaces that do not back into the right-of-way. The additional landscaping provides screening and increases the total number of points provided. Staff recommends approval of the Final Planned Development Overlay application with revised stipulations. The applicant has submitted this Final Planned Development Overlay to expand an auto repair shop. In particular, the applicant is proposing to construct a 6,800 square foot addition to an existing 22,743 square foot auto repair shop. The addition will include shop space. As a part of the expansion, the applicant is requesting the following Exceptions: to reduce the minimum required parking from 63 spaces to 20 spaces, to waive the requirement to pave the vehicle storage area, to waive the requirement to install an opaque screening fence, and to reduce the minimum required landscaping from 121,867 points to 47,290 points.
