10. Use Permit UP08-16 and Environmental Assessment for amended conditions of Use Permit UP06-4 to allow restaurant uses in the commercial center – 1000 King Drive
Staff report presented by: Steve Engfer, Assistant Planner
Mr. Engfer presented the request by Dan Tealdi for a use permit to allow restaurant uses at the site. This is an amended condition of the previous Use Permit UP06-4. It is referring to Condition of Approval #8 specifically, which limited the uses due to parking constraints. The site is located at the northwest corner of King Drive and Callan Boulevard. It is zoned C-1 Light Commercial and the General Plan Land Use Designation is Retail and Office Commercial.
The project is categorically exempt from CEQA as interior improvements to an existing commercial facility. One letter of opposition to the project was received from King Plaza Center, LLC. Staff contacted them and provided them with information on the parking requirements for this project.
There are nineteen parking spaces at the site, plus queuing spaces for the Jiffy Lube use. The approved parking plan layout is almost built out. There are twenty four spaces required for the uses based on square footage. There is a 20% reduction in parking allowed for the mixed use per the Zoning Ordinance, which results in nineteen spaces required by code. Therefore no additional parking spaces are required for the restaurant use being proposed. The proposed restaurant is a Subway sandwich shop.
Speaker: John Tealdi, property owner
Commissioner Satorre asked how many tables would be in the restaurant. Mr. Tealdi responded that there would be nine tables with eighteen chairs. Mr. Tealdi also discussed the amended floor plan for Subway, explaining the change in configuration.

Commissioner Satorre announced the Mission Street Urban Design Charrette would be held on Saturday at the War Memorial, from 8:30am to 8:00pm. The goal of the charrette is to develop practical urban design concepts that can be incorporated into future development and over time help the Mission Street corridor. He invited everyone to come and participate and help make their City more beautiful in the future.
Mr. Berger added that it will be a long day, but that there are a couple of parts to it. People who want to participate do not have to be there for all 12 hours. The first part of the morning will be the 30-40 architects listening to people’s ideas and the attributes they are looking for so that they can come up with ideas as they look at four distinct areas of Mission Street. Most of the afternoon, the architects will be working out designs. The last one to two hours will be the presentation of what they came up with in terms of concepts.
Commissioner Salamy requested the meeting be adjourned in memory of Angelina Ciucci and expressed her sympathy to Don Ciucci and family.
Moved by Commissioner Kelly, seconded by Commissioner Salamy, to adjourn at 7:20 p.m.
