Document Description
This application is for a Use Permit, Architectural and Site Approval, and a Grading Permit for the development of a new welcome center and dining facility at an existing retreat facility. There is no increase proposed in the capacity of conference rooms or in the number of sleeping facilities. The existing dining hall will be converted into a storage building. The proposed facility will be approximately 10,155 square feet. The existing dining room is approximately 4,470 square feet; there will be a net increase of 5,685 square feet of dining room space. The welcome center will be comprised of a bookstore, reception area, and the possibility of an eco-corner, an environmental education center. The dining hall will be designed to accommodate up to 200 guests into three dining rooms. The dining facility will include a kitchen, a food serving area, and a lobby. The purpose of building the new dining hall is to accommodate up to three separate groups using the retreat center concurrently. No buildings will be demolished as part of the proposed project. Additionally, the applicant proposes to restore parts of the site through planting native tree species and rehabilitation open areas where old buildings once stood. Traffic circulation will be redesigned to keep on site traffic to a minimum by concentrating most visitor parking close to the entrance of the site.
