Planning Commission Minutes December 28, 2005
Mr. Garcia stated the property was zoned C-2, Commercial, which allowed structures to be as high as 60 feet and the proposed structure was 32 feet, they were below the single- family height limits and the C-1, Commercial height limits and were not close to the C-2, commercial limits. If they were to build an office building, which would be fully permitted within this area, and go three stories, they would be higher than 32 feet and if they went five stories, there wold be no privacy because there would be windows looking out the back and the traffic and circulation issues would be much more intense than what was being proposed. He stated mini storage facilities typically generate a small amount of traffic, so the parking demands were relatively low. The lighting issues addressed by the residents could be dealt with by using lower level lighting and direct lighting fixtures. In addition, there was a trail that ran along the wash that would provide additional screening and buffering.
