Document Description
NOTE: Extended per lead to March 8, 2010. The proposed project consists of the development of a senior citizen assisted living facility. A total of 285 beds would be provided, and residents would share communal facilities, including a dining room, television room, etc. Four three-story buildings would be developed, each 35 feet tall. A total of 310 parking spaces would be provided, 102 more than the 208 required by code. A total of 79 spaces would be provided in three surface parking areas, and the remaining 231 spaces would be provided in the basement levels beneath each building. Terraces, decks and roof-top gardens are proposed on all buildings. Following project implementation, approximately 18 percent of the site would be developed and approximately 82 percent of the site would be open space. More specifically, approximately 2 acres (6 percent) of the site would be developed with buildings; approximately 5 acres (13 percent) of the site would be developed with driveways, roads, parking areas, sidewalks, and building terraces; approximately 17 acres (40 percent) of the site would be landscaped area; and approximately 18 acres (42 percent) would be natural open space. Access would be taken from two points on Topanga Canyon Boulevard. The proposed grading, which would be balanced on-ite, would involve approximately 227,000 cubic yards. The project would connect to existing water and sewer lines in the vicinity. The following approvals are requested as part of the project: 1.) A Conditional Use Permit to allow the proposed 285-bed senior citizen assisted living facility use (aka: adult residential facility) to house more than six persons in the A-1-2 zone. 2.) An Oak Tree Permit to remove approximately 94 oak trees and encroach upon the protected zone of approximately 92 additional ordinance-sized oak trees out of 246 oak trees on site. Approximately 60 oak trees would remain. 3.) A Coditional Use Permit for development in a Hillside Management Area, for grading exceeding 5,000 cubic yards within the Santa Monica Mountains North Area Community Standards District (CSD), and to address a possible lot line adjustment for relocation of two or more lot lines between three or more contiguous parcels in a hillside area.
