<br />CITY OF SAN LEANDRO <br />STAFF REPORT <br /> <br />APPROVED AND FORWARDED <br />TO CITY COUNCIL <br /> <br /> <br />ams <br /> <br />DATE: <br /> <br />May 7, 2007 <br /> <br />TO: <br /> <br />John Jermanis, City Manager <br /> <br />FROM: <br /> <br />Hanson Hom, Community Development Director <br /> <br /> <br />BY: Debbie Pollart, Planning Manager tJP <br />SUBJECT PROJECT/PROJECT DESCRIPTION: <br /> <br />MATTER OF APPEAL BY INTERNATIONAL CHURCH FOURSQUARE GOSPEL, <br />APPLICANT, OF THE DECISION OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION'S DENIAL OF <br />PLN2006-00049; REZONE AND ZONING MAP AMENDMENT TO REZONE THE <br />PROPERTIES IDENTIFIED AS 14600 AND 14850 CATALINA STREET FROM <br />INDUSTRIAL PARK (IP) TO INDUSTRIAL PARK, ASSEMBLY USE OVERLAY (IP-AU). <br />NO PHYSICAL CHANGES TO THE PROPERTIES ARE PROPOSED AS PART OF THIS <br />ENTITLEMENT. THE PROJECT SITE IS LOCATED AT THE SOUTHEAST CORNER OF <br />CATALINA STREET AND F ARALLON DRIVE AND IS COMPRISED OF THREE <br />SEPARATE PARCELS; ASSESSOR'S PARCEL NUMBERS 80G-933-20, -21, AND -22-1; <br />INTERNATIONAL CHURCH FOURSQUARE GOSPEL (PROPERTY OWNER AND <br />APPLICANT). <br /> <br />SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATION <br /> <br />On April 12, 2007, the Planning Commission denied a rezone of the properties in question to <br />include the Assembly Use overlay (-AU). The project site is currently zoned Industrial Park (IP) <br />and is not one of the sites recently rezoned to include the Assembly Use overlay. The applicant <br />wishes to have the Assembly Use overlay applied to the property so that they could move their <br />existing assembly facility from Manor Boulevard. With the Assembly Use overlay, the applicant <br />could apply for the necessary Conditional Use Permit needed for assembly uses. Without the <br />overlay, the property is not permitted, nor conditionally permitted for assembly uses. <br /> <br />Based upon the General Plan policies and Zoning Code regulations that were the basis for the <br />Assembly Use Overlay criteria, the fact that the City's industrial zones are designed to and do in <br />fact accommodate materials and activities that pose at least a potential hazard to human <br />populations and that such presence and the potential future presence of hazardous materials and <br />activities in the vicinity of the project site and the intended assembly use, renders it inappropriate <br />for rezoning with the Assembly Use Overlay, the Planning Commission and staff recommend <br />that the City Council make a motion to uphold the denial of the rezone and deny the appeal. <br />
