Meeting Date: September 26, 2006

Subject/Title: Set the date for the appeal of the Lone Tree Ranch project (GPA 06-01/RZ 06-06/DR 04-31/CUP 06-02), located at the southwest corner of Lone Tree Way and Gann Street

Prepared by: Erik Nolthenius, Principal Planner

Submitted by: Howard Sword, Community Development Director

Set October 10, 2006, as the public hearing date to consider the appeal by Kent Ipsen.

On September 5, 2006, the Planning Commission held a public hearing to consider a mitigated negative declaration and four entitlements requested by Kent and Yvette Ipsen for the Lone Tree Ranch project, including the following:

• A general plan amendment to change the site’s existing land use designation from Ranchette Estate to General Commercial;

• A rezone to change the site’s existing zoning classification from Ranchette Estate to Planned Development No. 70, including the establishment of development standards;

• A design review for two single-story buildings totaling 12,550-square-feet, including an 8,750-square-foot building for café and retail uses, and a 3,800-square-foot building for a sit-down restaurant known as Skipolini’s Pizza, as well as related parking, landscaping, and other improvements on the site; and

• A conditional use permit to allow the establishment of a sit-down restaurant known as Skipolini’s Pizza on the site.

The Commission voted 2-2 (Commissioner Cushing was absent) on each of the five resolutions that staff had prepared for the entitlements. As a result, the project was not approved.

By the attached letter submitted September 12, 2006, as required by Section 17.880.003.D of the Zoning Ordinance, Kent Ipsen submitted a written statement appealing the Planning Commission action. Per Sections 17.880.002 and 003.B and E (Appeal Procedure and Set Hearing) the applicant's appeal letter is being forwarded to the City Council. It is recommended that the City Council set October 10, 2006, as the date for the public hearing on the appeal request.
