Document Description
The existing 1.18-acre Project site is completely disturbed and consists of a parking area and a few shed structures previously used for a plant nursery that is no longer in business. The Project includes the construction of a 12,434-square-foot boutique hotel consisting of 17 hotel rooms across nine detached bungalow structures, a full-service public restaurant, outdoor pool with pool deck, four outdoor spas, and 41 parking spaces, including 4 EV parking spaces. The site also includes 4 motorcycle parking spaces, 1 loading space and 2 bicycle parking spaces. A majority of the landscaping proposed will be native and require minimal water throughout the facility. Entry to and from the property will take place from La Costa Avenue and includes a 330-foot-long driveway within the property. The Minor Use Permit would be placed over one parcel (APN: 216-030-48), while an adjacent parcel (APN: 216-030-10) would support an offsite 8-inch emergency overflow pipe to discharge to a drainage inlet. The Project will also include public road and infrastructure improvements such as undergrounding existing utility poles, striping on La Costa Avenue, and upgrading the existing water main from Sheridan Road to the Project frontage. The Project would require the grading of 4,680 cubic yards, with 2,060 cubic yards of cut, 900 cubic yards of fill, 1,160 cubic yards of export, and 1,720 cubic yards of remediation.
