CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 3

Meeting Date: January 10, 2006

Subject/Title: Waive the second reading of Ordinance 819 amending Planned Development No. 56 (Sunset Industrial Park) to allow for indoor recreational facilities within Subarea “A” with a conditional use permit.

Prepared by: Jeff Zilm, Senior Planner

Submitted by: Howard Sword, Community Development Director

RECOMMENDATION
Waive the second reading and adopt Ordinance 819 approving a zoning amendment to Planned Development No. 56 to allow for indoor recreational facilities to occur within Subarea “A” of the Sunset Industrial Park Complex with a conditional use permit.

BACKGROUND
At its meeting of December 13, 2005, the City Council, in a 3-0 vote (Mayor Swisher absent and Councilmember Brockman recused for a conflict), introduced and waived the first reading of Ordinance 819.

FISCAL IMPACT
Fiscal impact to the City should be positive. Although the establishment of development standards themselves does not create fiscal impact, this action will allow the development of the Sunset Industrial Park in a manner which will promote a vibrant mix of uses thereby creating a harmonious land use transition between the Sunset Park and the recreational uses located within Subarea “A”.

Attachment:
Ordinance No. 819

ORDINANCE NO. 819

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BRENTWOOD RECOMMENDING APPROVAL OF THE REZONE (RZ 05-16) TO AMEND THE CONDITIONALLY PERMITTED USES IN SUBAREA A OF PLANNED DEVELOPMENT NO. 56 (SUNSET INDUSTRIAL BUSINESS PARK) TO INCLUDE INDOOR RECREATION FACILITIES. THE SUNSET INDUSTRIAL PARK IS LOCATED NORTH OF SUNSET ROAD AND WEST OF SELLERS AVENUE.

WHEREAS, the Planning Commission of the City of Brentwood considered the rezoning to amend Planned Development 56, filed in accordance with Chapter 16.040 et seq. of the Brentwood Municipal Code; and

WHEREAS, the current Chapter 17.511.003 Subsection “A” Conditionally Permitted Uses is outdated and needs to be consistent with the City’s General Plan and the modern needs of a growing mixed use community and meet the expectations of its citizen; and

WHEREAS, a duly noticed public hearing on this project was advertised in the Brentwood Press on December 2, 2005; and

WHEREAS, the environmental effects of this proposed action have been considered and subject to the California Environmental Quality Act Section 15061 Subsection B3 will not have a significant effect on the environment and thereby exempt from any further environmental review; and

WHEREAS, the City Council held a public hearing on the proposed Municipal Code Amendment for the purpose of reviewing the staff report, which includes an analysis of the consistency of the proposed project with all goals and policies of the General Plan, considering all comments made by public testimony with the respect to this project amendment and all other documents; and

WHEREAS, the City Council of the City of Brentwood makes the following supporting findings for this application:

1. No text amendment shall occur, which is inconsistent with the City’s General Plan. In making a decision the City Council considers the consistency of the proposed action to the Municipal Code and whether the proposed action is inappropriate or otherwise contrary to the public interest. The City Council finds that the proposed text amendment is consistent with the public interest and the City’s General Plan Economic Development Goals 2, 3, and 5.

2. That the amendment will expound Chapter 17.511.003 Subsection “A” so that activities may be conducted in harmony with other uses within the Sunset Industrial Business Park and will encourage or create new activities which will support and induce balanced economic growth.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Brentwood hereby takes the following action:

• Approve the amendment to the City of Brentwood’s Zoning Code Chapter 17.511, Planned Development No. 56 (Sunset Industrial Business Park) Section 17.511.003, Subsection “A” Conditionally Permitted Uses within Subarea “A” (line item 5) as follows:

Subarea A: The following uses require a Conditional Use Permit in Subarea A:

1. Lumber or Milling Yard

2. Nurseries for sale of plants and flowers and other enterprises customarily conducted in the open.

3. Any office, retail or showroom display uses incidental to industrial, business or commercial retail uses permitted in this Subarea exceeding 50% of the square footage of the primary use building area.

4. Outdoor storage, holding, display, manufacturing and distribution areas exceeding screen heights or with interior contents that can otherwise be seen from ground level of public right-of-way.

5. Indoor recreational facilities including, but not limited to, a dance studio, gymnastics facility, or fitness facility.

6. Other uses that the Community Development Director determines because of the operation, storage requirements, goods sold or other special considerations should require a Conditional Use Permit.
