Request to permit the expansion of an existing legal non-conforming (LNC) restaurant operating on a 0.59± acre parcel in the Historical (HS) zoning district. The site is improved with a 3,700± square-foot restaurant with a 2,322 square foot attached covered patio, and gazebo. The County recognizes the LNC use as permitting the interior of the structure to be used as a dining space; however, several expansions of the patio for outdoor dining activities have been made without permits over the course of several decades. This request for a Historical Site Permit is to permit the extension of the covered patio as well as to permit outdoor dining. If approved, the restaurant will have eighty seats both indoor and outdoor, for 160 total. The hours of operation are currently Wednesday through Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Sunday 11:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. At peak daily operation, the restaurant has 25 employees and serves up to 120 customers. Approximately 2-3 truck deliveries occur per week. In the past, events such as weddings, music festivals, and corporate events had been held here without land use entitlements; however, no events, live entertainment, or amplified music beyond ambient music and TV are proposed to occur on-site in the future. As stipulated by Chapter 6.40 in the Stanislaus County Code, up to six outdoor events are permitted per year by the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office without land use entitlements. If in the future, the owner or restaurant operator wishes to exceed six events, then another Historical Site Permit will be required. The site takes access off County-maintained Sonora Road. Limited parking is available on-site and off-site throughout parts of the Knights Ferry community. A total of seven on-site parking spaces are available within the front yard setback area, three spaces are available along the frontage of the adjacent property directly east of the restaurant and under the same ownership, and 25-30 spaces available in a vacant area within the public right-of-way directly across the Main Street, which has been historically used for parking by community members and visitors. According to the applicant, approximately 12 more on-street parking spaces are traditionally used by the community for public parking in front of public/commercial buildings within 400 feet walking distance of the restaurant. The site is served by the Knights Ferry Community Service District (CSD) for water and utilizes an on-site septic system for wastewater.
