Comments on matters that are on the agenda shall be made at the time the Commission considers those matters. Except in very limited situations, State law precludes the Commission from taking action on or engaging in discussions concerning items of business that are not on the agenda. However, the Commission may refer matters not on the agenda to City staff or direct that the subject be “agendized” for a future meeting. Speakers are limited to 3 minutes each.

6. 2 ALEXANDER AVENUE (APN 065-303-05/065-303-20) Staff: Russell
Ed Fotsch (Property Owner & Applicant)

ANNOUNCEMENTS AND OPPORTUNITY FOR DISCLOSURE OF EX PARTE COMMUNICATIONS

PROJECT: Applicant, Donald Olsen, on behalf of property owner Ed Fotsch, requests Planning Commission approval to amend previously approved Design Review and Variance applications (VA/DR 03-26 and DRM 06-070) for a development project at 2 Alexander Avenue. The previously approved project included enlarging the existing garage to a four-car garage, adding a new exterior entry stairway, and adding an under floor area with a living room and den. The project required Planning Commission approval of a Variance for projections into the side yard and special front yard setbacks and an Encroachment Permit for improvements in the public right-of-way. The proposed amendment to the Variance and Design Review permits would allow the exterior stairway to project an additional one (1) foot into the side-yard setback in order to legalize the constructed structure. The as-built dimensions of the constructed structure increase the site’s building coverage and floor area by 0.5% and 0.9% respectively to 43% and 49.8%. The other modification is to add a bathroom in the previously approved under floor area.
