PUBLIC HEARINGS:

 

General Plan Amendment, Major Subdivision, Use Permit and Environmental Assessment for Construction of a New Affordable 36-Unit Condominium Development over Podium Parking at 7555 Mission Street (Cont’d. from 2/11/08)

 

            Senior Planner Tatum Mothershead stated that the applicant, Peninsula Habitat for Humanity, is proposing to construct a 36-unit condominium with an overall height of 50 feet and podium parking at 7555 Mission Street. Ms. Motherhead proceeded to outline the site in a PowerPoint presentation of the project site.

 

            All units will be made affordable to low and very low income families. The zoning ordinance allows for a 25 percent reduction for developments that are intended for the exclusive use of low income persons or families. In order to allow for the development, a general plan amendment would be required to change the land use density from medium to high density residential, as well as a subdivision to create the units and use permits. Fifty-four parking spaces will be required and 57 spaces will be provided.

 

            Councilmember Christensen and Councilmember Guingona expressed their support for the project.

 

            It was moved by Councilmember Guingona, seconded by Councilmember Christensen and carried to close the public hearing.

 

            It was moved by Concilmember Christensen, seconded by Councilmember Gomez and carried that this project will not have a detrimental effect on the environment and instructed that a Negative Declaration be filed.

 

            It was moved by Councilmember Christensen, seconded by Councilmember Guingona and carried to approve General Plan Amendment (GPA07-1), Major Subdivision (SUB07-1), and Use Permit (UP07-3) subject to Conditions of Approval.

 

            It was moved by Concilmember Christensen, seconded by Councilmember Guingona and carried by unanimous roll call vote to adopt the following resolution:

 

            Resolution No. 08-36, Adopting the Negative Declaration (CEQA), Adopting Findings of Fact for General Plan Amendment (GPA07-1), Major Subdivision (SUB07-1), and Use Permit (UP07-3) for Construction of a New Affordable 36-unit Condominium Development over Podium Parking at 7555 Mission Street

City Council

 

            Councilmember Gomez gave a report on her meeting with the San Mateo County Pre-Hospital Medical Services Group JPA Board. Councilmember Gomez, the City’s representative for the Advanced Life Support JPA (Joint Powers of Authority), gave a brief history on emergency services provided in the county.

 

            Currently, we have Model B which combines emergency ambulance and paramedic first response. First responder response time is 6 minutes and 59 seconds. However, the County’s Health Director is proposing the older Model A, which would mean 8 minutes and 59 seconds. The JPA does not believe this is in the best interest of residents
