Request: A proposal to merge an existing, vacant 0.54-acre triangular parcel (APN 7574-005-019) with a 3.12-acre parcel (APN 7574-005-020) that contains the main church campus for the purpose of developing an additional church parking lot. The development of the parking lot proposes 3,954 cubic yards of grading (1,564 cubic yards of cut and 2,390 cubic yards of fill) and construction of retaining walls up to six feet (6’-0”) in height. The new parking lot would have fifty-three (53) spaces and would be illuminated by a combination of 42-inch-tall bollards and 16-foot-tall freestanding downcast light fixtures. The new parking lot would also include landscaped areas, striped play areas for the church’s preschool, and a new access stairway to the main church campus. In addition, the freestanding light fixtures in the existing parking lot on the main church campus would be replaced with shorter, 16-foot-tall downcast light fixtures and new landscaping would be installed. An access driveway between the new and existing parking lots would also be constructed. New play equipment will be added adjacent to the existing preschool. No other changes to the scope of services or activities provided on the church property are proposed as a part of this application.
