Document Description
The applicant proposes the conversion of an existing 4,042-square-foot single-family residence into a guest ranch. The conversion would consist of adding approximately 420 square feet—an ADA-accessible restroom—to the existing residence. Three parking areas of permeable pavement—5,634 square feet, 10,924 square feet, and 9,280 square feet, respectively—would be placed at three previously graded locations along the existing 1,900-foot-long driveway. These parking areas would hold a total of 67 off-street parking spaces. The facility would host a maximum of eight overnight guests and six employees. A total of one exterior special event with a capacity of up to 200 people would be allowed at the facility per month, along with 12 interior special events of less than 100 people and 12 interior special events with 100 to 200 people. An unlimited number of smaller meetings, limited to 45 persons or less, would be permitted from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. year-round. A total of 350 cubic yards of grading is proposed (200 cubic yards cut, 150 cubic yards fill) is proposed. The project requires a significant ecological area conditional use permit (“SEA-CUP”) as the project is proposed within a mapped significant ecological area (“SEA”). Existing vineyards on the site would be reauthorized using current best management practices. Walking trails are also located on the site.
