Document Description
The project consists of an expansion of the approved St. John Garabed Armenian Church (Church) to include the proposed El Camino Real Assisted Living Facility (Assisted Living Facility), to be located south of the approved Church. The project would include amending the Church’s existing approvals to include the proposed Assisted Living Facility. More specifically, the Assisted Living Facility would require a Site Development Permit (SDP); a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) Amendment; an Uncodified CUP Ordinance; a Neighborhood Use Permit (NUP); a Coastal Development Permit (CDP) Amendment; and certification of the Final Subsequent EIR. The entire project site (existing Church and proposed Assisted Living Facility) is approximately 17.33 acres while the Assisted Living Facility is 3.97 acres. The Church has been constructed and operational. Three accessory buildings that would be associated with the Church have not yet been constructed. The Assisted Living Facility proposes a 105,568 square foot (sf) building with 105 rooms and supporting amenities. The three-story Assisted Living Facility would be 105,568 sf and 40 feet tall, which would exceed the base zone 30-foot height limit. An additional 10 feet of building height is allowed per each 10 feet increase of setbacks per San Diego Municipal Code (SDMC) 131.0344. The Assisted Living Facility would provide greater than the minimum 20-foot setback from adjacent properties in accordance with the existing zoning of the site, Agricultural-Residential (AR-1-1). The Assisted Living Facility would also include 57 surface parking spaces and on-site landscaping and would retain 1.12 acres in the eastern area of the parcel as open space, in accordance with the existing designated Multiple Habitat Planning Area (MHPA) area. This area would be covered by a Covenant of Easement and maintained as open space in perpetuity.
