THE CITY OF Planning Commission <br /> ,�. IAgenda Report <br /> •" .. flaw. ptn <br /> November 13, 2019 <br /> LEASANTON Item 4 <br /> SUBJECT: P19-0342 <br /> APPLICANT: City of Pleasanton <br /> PURPOSE: Consider adding a new Section 18.140.030 Fines and Restrictions <br /> on Future Development for Illegal Historic Building Demolition to <br /> the Municipal Code to strengthen preservation of historic buildings <br /> and penalize unpermitted demolitions and alterations <br /> LOCATION: Citywide <br /> GENERAL PLAN/ <br /> SPECIFIC PLAN Various <br /> ZONING: <br /> EXHIBITS: A. Draft resolution recommending new Municipal Code Section <br /> 18.140.030 Fines and Restrictions on Future Development <br /> for Illegal Historic Building Demolition as Attachment 1 <br /> STAFF RECOMMENDATION <br /> Staff recommends that the Planning Commission take the following actions: <br /> 1. Find that the proposed addition to the Pleasanton Municipal Code is categorically <br /> exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). <br /> 2. Adopt a resolution recommending approval of Case P19-0342, addition to the <br /> Pleasanton Municipal Code of new Section 18.140.030 Fines and Restrictions on <br /> Future Development for Illegal Historic Building Demolition as shown in Exhibit A, <br /> Attachment 1, and forward the proposal to the City Council for consideration. <br /> EXECUTIVE SUMMARY <br /> Historic buildings are a community resource, and the City lists historic resources in the General <br /> Plan, has an inventory of historic residential structures in the Downtown Specific Plan area, <br /> and has determined other structures to be historic resources in other City documents. The <br /> current Municipal Code allows property owners to process new development applications that <br /> may simultaneously consider alteration and demolition of historic buildings. The Building Code <br /> also allows the Chief Building and Safety Official to make a determination if a building is so <br /> unsafe or dangerous that it should be demolished. A new section is proposed which would <br /> further the policy of preservation of historic buildings by imposing monetary fines and <br />ourned the meeting at 10:33 <br /> a.m. <br /> Respectfully submitted, <br /> Jenny Soo <br /> Associate Planner <br /> P19-0130, Malik, 7218 Moss Tree Way Page 2 of 2 <br />less than 10 feet from <br /> our house!We had bought the house and paid the premium price in Pheasant Ridge community <br /> because among other reasons, we didn't want houses closely packed, this proposed <br /> construction is going to take that away from us. That is going to drastically affect our quality of <br /> life as well as property value. <br /> An updated design was submitted by the applicant to address some of the privacy issues we <br /> had raised. It seems in this design the width of the siding also encroaches a bit more into the <br /> setbacks on the side of the house. None of the other homes in our neighborhood have had large <br /> siding walls or overhangs like that put up and we are worried it would look out of place. <br /> During the design review hearing process it became very clear that no matter what we said or <br /> how it affected us, this was going to get approved. During the hearing we suggested an II <br />at its closest point,a larger setback than the standards would require. The proposed addition would be built directly above the <br /> existing garage and would maintain the existing building setback. <br /> P19-0130 Planning Commission <br /> 11 of 15 <br />
