Document Description
The project proposes a General Plan Amendment and Zone Reclassification to change the County’s General Plan land use designation for the site from Residential Low Density (RL) to Commercial Services (CS), and to rezone the site from Residential Single Family (R-1) to Community Commercial (C-2). The applicant operates a health clinic with offices and dental facilities on a 1.11 acre parcel immediately to the west of the project site at 101 West Coast Road (Assessor's Parcel Number (APN): 077-312-015). Its current land use designation is Commercial Services (CS), and its zoning designation is Community Commercial (C-2). The applicant recently purchased the 59 Shady Grove Lane property (the project site) and is seeking a General Plan amendment and rezoning to accommodate the development of parking facilities to supplement the parking on the adjacent 101 West Coast Road site used by Redwoods Rural Health Center staff and customers. The applicant plans to pave and landscape the majority of the project site to accommodate 35 new parking spaces and a two-way drive aisle, connecting the property to Shady Grove Lane. The application includes an exception request to the parking standards of the zoning ordinance to allow the use of shared parking between the subject property and the adjacent RRHC facilities on APN 077-312-015. The project site may also be used for a proposed Wellness Center, housing perinatal, nutrition and acupuncture services in a single-story structure located where there currently is a vacated single family residence.
