Document Description
LAMAR WILKINSON (Applicant and Owner). County File #LP05-2098: The applicant requests approval of the following a) a land use permit to allow the sale of alcoholic beverages, and b) associated approval of a development plan to allow the establishment of a card room. The project can be characterized as the relocation and expansion of the California Grand Casino, a card room that is presently located at 5867 Pacheco Blvd. The existing card room, which includes a bar and kitchen, is housed in a building totaling approx. 5,100 sq. ft. The proposed project would move the card room across Pacheco Blvd. to the former Big B Lumberteria building. Modifications to the building would reduce its size to 17,859 sq. ft. Of this, 3,705 sq. ft. would be used for gaming. The remaining sq. footage would be divided between a variety of uses including the building entry, information desk, lounge, restaurant, bar, meeting rooms, storage areas, and circulation (hallways and stairs). Establishment of the bar would require issuance of a new liquor license. The applicant requests a variance to the setback standard of the Zoning Ordinance (10 ft. required form the right-of-way of roads; zero setback proposed). A variance is requested to the off-street parking standards (parking stall size, backup distance and tandem parking), but the prescribed minimum number of parking spaces would be provided. Additionally, the applicant proposes to perform work within the drip line of code-protected trees. The 2.2 acre site is located in the northwest corner of the Second Ave. So./Pacheco Blvd. intersection, and is addressed 5940 Pacheco Blvd., in the Pacheco area (R-B) (ZA:H-14) (CT3212,00) (Parcel 125-077-022, -026 & -027).
