Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

On December 14, 2017, the Planning Commission considered Design Review Revision DR08-0003-R/Saratoga Retail ("Project") submitted by Peter Navarra for a Design Review revision to add one building and reduce square footage by 6,907 square feet from Design Review DR08-0003/The Shops at El Dorado Hills, that was originally approved by the Planning Commission in 2009 with 3 buildings totaling 30,628 square feet. Phase 1 has been constructed as a Walgreens (13,263 square feet). Phase 2 is proposed to be 3 buildings totaling 10,458 square feet consisting of: one 2,800 square foot restaurant with a drive-thru lane; one 3,000 square foot retail commercial building; and one 4,658 square foot restaurant with a drive-thru lane. The property, identified by Assessor’s Parcel Numbers 120-690-07 and 120-690-08, consisting of 1.71 acres, is located on the west side of El Dorado Hills Boulevard, south of the intersection with Saratoga Way, in the El Dorado Hills area, Supervisorial District 1.  (County Planner: Efren Sanchez)  (Negative Declaration prepared)

 

At that hearing, the Planning Commission made a motion to take conceptual action to deny the Project with direction for Planning staff to return on January 11, 2018, with Findings for Denial. The public hearing discussion that led to the conceptual action included staff’s recommendation, applicant’s presentation of the Project, public comments, and the traffic consultant’s expert testimony. The Planning Commission indicated that they would like further explanation on the Project’s near-term traffic impact, the Negative Declaration as it relates to traffic, and further explanation of what classifies a tourist-serving or traffic-attracting business.
