The applicant requests approval of a Design Review Permit (DRP) to allow for the construction of a 120,000 square foot fitness center, outdoor pool, and 14 tennis courts with related site improvements including parking, site/building lighting, and landscaping. In addition, a minor Ordinance Amendment (OA) to add outdoor recreation as a conditionally permitted use in the Community Commercial (CC) zone, a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) to allow for outdoor recreation in the CC zone, and a Specific Plan Amendment to eliminate two parcel specific conditions are proposed.
The Planning Department has determined the project may have an impact on the environment. An Environmental Impact Report was prepared and made available for public review and comment from July 24, 2013 through September 9, 2013. (See below)
- Planning Commission public hearing on August 22, 2013
- City Council public hearing on November 6, 2013
- City Council public hearing on December 4, 2013
1. How large is the building?
The project proposes to develop a 120,000 square foot, two-story building that will measure approximately 38’ in height to the top of the parapet, with a skylight architectural feature located at the front of the building that will extend an additional 15’.
2. Will the Gym operate 24 hours?
No, the gym will be open from 5am – 11pm, with limited times for outdoor activities: Lap Swimming: Dawn to Dusk; Recreational Swim: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Water Slides: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Child Care: 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Tennis Courts (10 courts furthest from adjacent single-family residences): 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Tennis Courts (4 courts closest to adjacent single-family residences): 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
3. Will there be swim meets at this facility that utilize a public address (PA) system?
No outdoor swim meets are proposed at this location and no outdoor public address (PA) system will be used at the pool.
4. Will there be noise/lighting attenuation between the outdoor uses and the nearby residents?
Yes, the project will provide concrete block walls around the pool and outdoor play area, and will include noise attenuation screening along the tennis courts that are nearest to the homes.
5. What impacts will the proposed use have on traffic?
The proposed health club will generate approximately 35% fewer trips than anticipated by the City’s traffic model for this parcel. The City has reserved capacity within the roadway network to accommodate the traffic that would be generated by the proposed use when the property is developed.
6. Will the site be accessible to pedestrians?
Yes, the project will provide sidewalks around the entire site that will connect with the surrounding residential developments.
7. Does the current zoning allow for outdoor uses?
The property is currently zoned Community Commercial (CC) which allows indoor sports and recreation (health clubs), but does not allow for outdoor sports and recreation uses (e.g. outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, etc.). Therefore, the applicant is requesting a Zoning Ordinance Amendment to only allow these types of uses on parcels zoned CC upon approval of a Conditional Use Permit. A Conditional Use Permit is part of the entitlements that the applicant seeks approval of.
8. What parcel specific conditions is the applicant proposing to change?
The current request includes a Specific Plan Amendment to transfer 25 park and ride spaces assigned to the parcel to Harry Crabb park. In addition, the applicant is requesting to remove language requiring a pedestrian connection between the adjacent Senior Apartment Complex for security/safety reasons.
9. Does the specific plan designate the parcel for development of a neighborhood serving commercial use?
The specific plan does not limit the development of the site to only a shopping center, but provides for a variety of a neighborhood serving uses, which includes fitness clubs.
10. Will there be an Environmental Document prepared for the project?
Yes, the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requires that all projects are analyzed to determine the environmental effects of the proposed development. In compliance with CEQA, the City will prepare a Focused Environmental Impact Report (EIR) concentrating on four main areas (i.e. Traffic, Noise, Lighting, and Green House Gases/Air Quality). The Planning Commission and City Council will consider the EIR prior to taking action on the proposed project.
11. What does the Planning Department’s review process consist of?
The applicant has submitted a development application to the Planning Department and city staff has begun reviewing their request against our policies, guidelines, and standards. Once we have received all the necessary information to complete our analysis, and the EIR is complete, public hearings will be held before the Planning Commission and then City Council for their consideration of the proposed project.
The website will be updated periodically as new information becomes available. Residents are encouraged to contact Wayne Wiley in the Planning Department with questions. Various informational meetings will be scheduled to provide the public with opportunities to ask questions and provide comments on the project. The project is still under initial review by City staff; no public hearing dates have been scheduled at this time. Please check back periodically for updated information including meeting dates and times. If you would like to be placed on our mailing list to receive notices about future meetings, please email Wayne Wiley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
