Document Description
The project is a request by the owner, the Channel Islands Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) and Brian Banks, the agent for the owner, for a revised Conditional Use Permit to update the Montecito YMCA Master Plan, originally approved under Case No. 78-CP-75, for the purpose of renovating, enhancing, and expanding the existing facilities. The revised conditional use permit would allow for the demolition and reconstruction of existing buildings and the construction of several new buildings, as well as the continuation of existing programs including a selection of recreational, fitness and well-being programs for all age groups. The project will increase the total interior spaces of the facilities to approximately 22,638 square feet. The existing 7,416 square foot main building would be expanded and renovated, resulting in a structure of approximately 10,336 square feet. The 12,797 square foot outdoor sports court would be replaced with a new 9,425 square foot multi-purpose building. The existing 3,300 square foot locker room would be rebuilt with a new 2,717 square foot locker room. The pool will be expanded from 5 lanes to 7 lanes. The project includes the removal of 10 native trees, which will be mitigated by planting 75 native trees onsite. The project also proposes to increase the membership level limit to 1,950 memberships from an average of 1,550 memberships. Frontage improvements for the project are expected to include construction of sidewalk, curb, and gutter, lighting, utility improvements and removal of 2 native trees.
