Document Description
Site Development Permit (SDP), Planned Development Permit (PDP), and Conditional Use Permit (CUP) Amendment to existing CUP 4741/SDP 4742/PDP 267312 and MHPA Boundary Adjustment to demolish an existing parking lot, expand and construct a new 5-level, 272,274-square foot building addition to an existing hospital on a 26.98-acre site, within the Children's Hospital and Health Center Campus. Additionally, an associated emergency generator facility contained within a one-story, 85 by 40 foot building would be constructed on an adjacent 2.39-acre, included within the 26.98-acre site. An existing propane tank would be relocated adjacent to the new generator facility. The CUP amendment would also allow the addition of 12 guest units to the previously approved Ronald McDonald House, provide a comprehensive sign plan for the Acute Care Pavilion and previously approved Parking Garage/Ronald McDonald House Facility, and reduce the number of required parking stalls in the previously approved Parking Garage from 1,051 to 1,035. A SDP would be required for the project's encroachment into Environmentally Sensitive Lands. A PDP would be required to permit a deviation from the CO-1-2 Zone maximum building height of 60 feet to a maximum height of 96 feet and to allow development within the 10 foot front yard setback requirement of the underlying CO-1-2 Zone. A CUP amendment would be required for hospital uses within a commercial zone. Additionally, the MHPA Boundary Adjustment is required to mitigate MHPA encroachment by construction of the proposed emergency generator facility. The site is zoned CO-1-2 and lies within the Serra Mesa Community Plan area.
