Tutoring facilities with more than 20 students <br /> on-site at a time require Planning Commission review and approval of a CUP. As proposed <br /> and conditioned, staff finds the use is consistent with the intent of the General Plan and <br /> objectives of the zoning district and will be compatible with the surrounding uses, and therefore <br /> recommends approval of the CUP. <br /> BACKGROUND <br /> The project site is located on the northwest corner of Franklin Drive and Johnson Drive in a <br /> PUD-I/C-O District. It is a part of a multi-parcel Planned Unit Development (PUD) approved <br /> under Case No. PUD-80-16. The approval allowed and conditionally allowed a wide range of <br /> uses in the PUD, including offices, warehousing, manufacturing, health clubs and daycare <br /> centers.
