Title

GONTERMAN ENCROACHMENT (PA2022-127)

Site Location: 2304 Cliff Drive

Recommendation

 

Summary:

 

A request to waive City Council Policy L-6 for proposed private improvements consisting of stairs, handrails, retaining walls, and planters that encroach up to eight (8) feet-five (5) inches into the Cliff Drive public right-of-way. The Cliff Drive parkway extends approximately 12 feet from face of curb to the property line. Council Policy L-6 (“Policy”) prohibits the proposed stairs, handrails, retaining walls and planters since structures are limited to a 1-foot projection into the right-of-way and the height of encroachments are limited to three (3) feet from the top of curb elevation.

 

Recommended Action:

 

1. Find the project exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to Section 15303 Class 3 (New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures), because it has no significant effect on the environment;

 

2. Find Waive City Council Policy L-6, Encroachments in Public Rights-of-Way, for non-compliant private improvements consisting of stairs, handrails, retaining walls, and planters that encroach into the Cliff Drive public right-of-way, contingent upon all conditions of the Encroachment Permit process being met; and

 

3. Adopt Resolution No. PC2022-021 waiving City Council Policy L-6 and approving Encroachment Permit No. N2022-0147.
