  • Recommendation:

    An application for a Conditional Use Permit (CUP 23-002) and a Design Review (DR 23-002) for a new, 6,061 square foot, multi-tenant commercial speculative building with a 24-vehicle capacity drive-through lane and associated site improvements on a ±0.83-acre parcel located at 6740 Lone Tree Way (APN 019-010-038).

    Staff recommends that the Planning Commission adopt Resolution No. 24-001, approving Conditional Use Permit No. 23-002, and adopt Resolution No. 24-002, approving Design Review No. 23-002, both subject to certain findings and conditions.

    The project qualifies as a Class 32 categorical exemption under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Section 15332 (In-Fill Development Projects), insomuch as the proposed commercial speculative building and drive-through are consistent with the applicable General Plan designation, as well as with applicable zoning designation and regulations, are proposed on a project site less than 5-acres in size, have no value as habitat for endangered species, would not result in significant effects relating to traffic, noise, air quality, or water quality, and can be adequately served by all utilities and public services.

  • Recommendation:

    Staff recommends that the Planning Commission adopt Resolution No. 23-005 recommending the City Council approve a General Plan amendment (GPA 24-001) to repeal the March 2023 Housing Element and adopt the City’s November 2023 Submittal to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for the period of 2023-2031 (6th Cycle), in compliance with State housing element law.

    The amendment is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), pursuant to Section 15061(b)(3) of the CEQA Guidelines, as it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the amendment may have a significant effect on the environment.

  • Recommendation:

    Staff recommends that the Planning Commission adopt Resolution No. 23-003 recommending that the City Council adopt an Ordinance to amend the Brentwood Municipal Code by repealing and replacing Chapter 17.720 (Density Bonus Program) to implement State Density Bonus Law and adopt Government Code Sections 65915–65918 by reference, as well as modifying Section 17.725.002 (Definitions) of the City’s Affordable Housing Ordinance to modify the definition of Low-income household.

    These text amendments are exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), pursuant to Section 15061(b)(3) of the CEQA Guidelines, as it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the Ordinance may have a significant effect on the environment.

  • Recommendation:

    A Resolution recommending the City Council adopt an ordinance removing oil and gas development as conditionally permitted uses in Planned Development District No. 17 and Planned Development District No. 55, requiring oil and gas development uses to be expressly listed as permitted or conditionally permitted uses in a district to be permitted or eligible for conditional use permits, amending oil and gas production regulations, and finding the action exempt from CEQA (RZ 23-003).

    The adoption of the proposed ordinance is a discretionary action by the City Council and; therefore, subject to consideration under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The ordinance has been assessed in accordance with the authority and criteria contained in CEQA, the State CEQA Guidelines, and the environmental regulations of the City. Pursuant to CEQA and the CEQA Guidelines, it has been determined that the proposed ordinance is exempt from CEQA, including without limitation, requirements for CEQA review, pursuant to the following exemptions: the “common sense” exemption under CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3), and the categorical exemption under CEQA Guidelines Section 15308 for Class 8 - Actions by Regulatory Agencies for the Protection of the Environment.
