AND MAY WE PLEASE HAVE A STAFF REPORT? YES.

SHARON NAZARIAN MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION.

THIS IS ANDREW DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.

THE STAFF REPORT THIS EVENING WILL BE PRESENTED BY ASSOCIATE PLANNER, DAVID LOPEZ, GOOD EVENING, HONORABLE CHAIRMAN AND COMMISSIONERS.

THE APPLICANT THIS EVENING IS REQUESTING THE APPROVAL TO CONSTRUCT A NEW CHEVRON AUTOMOBILE SERVICE STATION WITH A CONVENIENCE STORE.

THAT INCLUDES A TYPE 20 ACELL BEER AND WINE LICENSE, AND I'LL BE GOING THROUGH THE POWERPOINT, UH, FIGHTS.

UH, THE LAST ATTACHMENT IN THE REPORT.

SLIDE NUMBER TWO SHOWS THE AERIAL OF THE PROPERTY.

IT'S LOCATED AT THE SOUTHEAST CORNER OF LA HOPPER BOULEVARD AND BEACH BOULEVARD.

THE GENERAL PLAN LAND USE DESIGNATION FOR THE SITE IS HIGHWAY COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES, ZONED S P ONE LA HOPPER BOULEVARD, SPECIFIC PLAN, AND IS DESIGNATED HIGHWAY COMMERCIAL, WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH THE GENERAL PLAN.

THERE WAS A SERVICE STATION THAT OPERATED FROM THE PROJECT SITE FROM 1963 TO 2017 ON JULY 7TH OF 2017, ALL ONSITE IMPROVEMENTS, INCLUDING THE UNDERGROUND TANKS WERE DEMOLISHED AND REMOVED.

THE PROPERTY HAS REMAINED VACANT SINCE THEN AT THIS TIME, ORANGE COUNTY HEALTH IS WAITING FOR A MONITORING REPORT FROM THE APPLICANT'S ENVIRONMENTAL FIRM ONCE SUBMITTED.

IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT ORANGE COUNTY HEALTH WILL ISSUE A NOTICE OF NO FURTHER ACTION.

UM, THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN CONDITIONED TO PROVIDE DOCUMENTATION FROM ORANGE COUNTY HEALTH CLEARING THE SITE OF ALL KNOWN CONTAMINATION PRIOR TO THE ISSUANCE OF ANY BUILDING PERMITS SLIDE NUMBER THREE, THE SUBJECT PARCEL IS 26,198 SQUARE FEET IN AREA.

UM, IT WILL BE REDUCED DOWN TO 20,801 SQUARE FEET AFTER A DEDICATION.

THE PARCELS NORTH PROPERTY LINE EXTENDS INTO THE LA HARBOR BOULEVARD RIGHT AWAY.

AND THIS IS AN AREA APPROXIMATELY 40 FEET IN LENGTH BY 130 FEET IN WIDTH.

UM, SO THIS AREA

[00:10:01]

WILL BE DEDICATED TO THE CITY AS PART OF THIS PROJECT.

THE PROPOSED CHEVRON AUTOMOBILE SERVICE STATION INCLUDES A 1,500 SQUARE FOOT CONVENIENCE STORE BUILDING AND A 3,570 SQUARE FOOT CANOPY THAT WILL PROVIDE 12 FUELING POSITIONS.

THE LAYOUT IS SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS MOBILE SERVICE STATION THAT EXISTED ON SITE.

UM, THE PROJECT INCLUDES EIGHT ONSITE PARKING SPACES, INCLUDING IN ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING PARKING SPACE, A TRASH ENCLOSURE AND, UH, AIR AND WATER DISPENSER LOCATED ALONG THE SOUTHERN LEE PROPERTY LINE.

UH, THE PROJECT ALSO INCLUDES ENHANCED LANDSCAPE PLANTERS ALONG THE HARBOR BOULEVARD AND BEACH BOULEVARD.

UM, THESE ARE WIDER THAN, UM, WHAT THE SPECIFIC PLAN REQUIRES.

THE NEW CONVENIENCE STORE BUILDING IS PROPOSED TO BE CONSTRUCTED ALONG THE EASTERLY PROPERTY LINE TO MAXIMIZE ONSITE VEHICLE AND FUEL TANKER CIRCULATION.

THE SPECIFIC PLAN REQUIRES A 20 FOOT RAIL YARD SETBACK.

HOWEVER, THE PROJECT INCLUDES A REQUESTED DEVIATION TO REDUCE THAT SETBACK DOWN TO THREE INCHES.

UH, THIS IS SUPPORTED BASED ON THE EXISTING IMPROVEMENTS FOUND ALONG THE EASTERLY AND SOUTHERLY PROPERTY LINES.

THE IMPROVEMENTS INCLUDE TWO CORPORATE STRUCTURES THAT SERVE, UH, THE PARKING OF THE ADJACENT APARTMENT COMPLEX.

THE NEAREST RESIDENTIAL STRUCTURE IS LOCATED 48 FEET TO THE EAST AND 44 FEET TO THE SOUTH.

THE, UH, EASTERLY PROPERTY LINE OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY IS 139 FEET IN LENGTH.

THE COMMUNITY STORE IS ONLY TAKING 50 FEET, UH, UTILIZING ABOUT 35% OF THE TOTAL PROPERTY LENGTH.

UH, THE COMMUNITY STORE BUILDING WILL ALSO BE SET BACK 51 FEET FROM LAHABRA BOULEVARD.

UM, THIS WILL MINIMIZE THE SIZE AND SCALE OF THE BUILDING.

THE REQUESTED DEVIATION, UH, WILL NOT CREATE A PUBLIC DETRIMENT AND IT WILL PROMOTE THE PUBLIC WELFARE BY IMPROVING THE OVERALL APPEARANCE AND OPERATION OF THE SITE.

A TRAFFIC IMPACT STUDY WAS ALSO PREPARED THAT ANALYZED ON-SITE ACCESS CIRCULATION AND TRAFFIC IMPACTS.

THE STUDY DID INCLUDE DATA FROM OTHER CITIES WHICH INCLUDE ANAHEIM FOUNTAIN VALLEY, LA PALMA, SANTA ANA, AND CULVER CITY.

AND THE DATA INCLUDED THAT THESE CITIES ALLOWED FOR, UH, CREDIT, UH, FOR ON-SITE PARKING WHEN FUELING, UM, IT PROVIDES DATA THAT 50% OF THE PUMP PARKING CAN BE CREDITED TOWARDS SITE PARKING REQUIREMENTS.

IF WE UTILIZE THIS METHOD, UM, THIS PROPOSED AUTOMOBILE SERVICE STATION HAS 12 FEELING POSITIONS, BUT 50% OF THOSE, WHICH WOULD BE SIX.

IT STAFF IS IN SUPPORT OF THIS ANALYSIS THAT WOULD ACTUALLY INCREASE THIS SERVICE STATIONS PARKING FROM EIGHT TO 11 SPACES.

UM, THE STUDY ALSO ANALYZED THE ONSITE CIRCULATION FOR THE FUEL TANKER AND IT FOUND IT TO BE ADEQUATE.

THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN CONDITIONED TO LIMIT THE HOURS OF REFUELING TO OFF-PEAK PERIODS FROM 8:00 PM TO 6:00 AM TO ALLOW FOR SAFER ON AND OFF ACCESS AND CIRCULATION SLIDE NUMBER FOUR, THE FLOOR PLAN, THE INTERIOR LATER THE COMMUNITY STORE INCLUDES A SALES AREA, UH, SHELVING REFRIGERATION UNITS, UH, IN ALL GENDER RESTROOM, WALK-IN FREEZER AND COOLER STORAGE AND UTILITY ROOM AND A CASHIER'S TRANSACTION AREA LIKE YOU STORE WILL PROVIDE PRE-PACKAGED FOOD ITEMS, SNACKS, BEVERAGES, AND OVERALL CONVENIENCE ITEMS. UM, IT ALSO PROVIDE COFFEE AND HEATED FOODS.

THE, UH, SERVICE STATION AND CONVENIENCE STORE WORLD OPERATE 24 HOURS A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, AND THE FACILITY WILL HAVE ONE TO TWO EMPLOYEES AT ALL TIMES.

THE PROJECT ALSO INCLUDES A TYPE 20 ABC LICENSE, UH, WHICH CAN AUTHORIZE OFF-SALE BEARING WINE.

THE FLOOR PLAN IDENTIFIES THREE COOLERS LOCATED WITHIN THE STORE.

THAT'LL BE USED TO DISPLAY OR THE BEER AND WINE.

AND THIS SUBJECT PROPERTY IS LOCATED WITHIN CENSUS TRACT, 11.03, THAT PER THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE CONTROL OR ABC ALLOWS TO

[00:15:01]

OFFSET LICENSES BEFORE THE CENSUS TRACT RISES TO A LEVEL OF UNDUE CONCENTRATION.

AT THIS TIME, THERE ARE ALREADY THREE ACTIVE ALSO LICENSES WITHIN THIS ASSISTANCE TRACT.

THAT INCLUDES RITE AID AND ALBERTSONS LOCATED ALONG WHITTIER BOULEVARD AND BEACH AND CIRCLE LIQUOR, WHICH IS LOCATED NORTH OF THE SUBJECT SITE.

THE PROPOSAL WOULD INCREASE THE AMOUNT TO FOUR ALSO LICENSES, AND THAT WOULD CLASSIFY THE CENSUS TRACK TO HAVE UNDUE CONCENTRATION OF ALSO LICENSES PURSUANT TO GOVERNMENT CODE SECTION TWO, THREE NINE, FIVE EIGHT, UH, THE CALIFORNIA BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONS CODE A DETERMINATION OF PUBLIC CONVENIENCE AND NECESSITY MUST BE MADE BEFORE AN ADDITIONAL OFFSET OF LICENSE CAN BE ISSUED.

THIS AUTOMOBILE SERVICE STATION AND CONVENIENCE STORE.

A PRIMARY FUNCTION WILL BE THE SALE OF GASOLINE.

THEY REQUESTED BEER AND WINE SALES ARE IN ANCILLARY.

USE THE PROPOSED ALCOHOL DISPLAY AREA WITHIN THE STORE.

UM, TOTAL 17 SQUARE FEET OR 0.01% OF THE TOTAL BUILDING AREA.

THE CITY'S POLICY HAS BEEN TO LIMIT THE NUMBER OF NEW ALSO LICENSES, PARTICULARLY IN AREAS THAT HAVE UNDUE CONCENTRATION.

PROJECT APPLICANTS HAVE BEEN REQUIRED TO PURCHASE AN EXISTING TYPE 20 OR TYPE 21 LICENSE WITHIN THE CITY BEFORE ANY NEW CALL SALES CAN TAKE PLACE.

IN THIS CASE, THIS PROJECT WILL INCLUDE THAT SAME CONDITION WHERE THE APPLICANT WILL BE REQUIRED TO PURCHASE AN EXISTING TYPE 20 OR TYPE 21 LICENSE WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS.

THUS, UH, THE NET NUMBER OF LICENSES IS NOT INCREASED, UH, SLIDE NUMBER FIVE, THE ELEVATIONS.

SO THE PROPOSED ELEVATIONS FOR THE NEW COMMUNITIES FOR BUILDING INCORPORATE ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS FOUND ON NEWER RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENTS CONSTRUCTED ALONG THE HARBOR BOULEVARD.

UH, TWO OF THEM SPECIFICALLY ARE THE SKYLARK AND PORTOLA WALK HOUSING PROJECTS, UH, WHICH BOTH INCLUDED TOWER ELEMENTS WITH CONCRETE ROOF TILES.

UH, ONE WITH THE BRICK EXTERIOR FINISH AND WITH ARCH OPENINGS AND THE OTHER WITH A DECORATIVE ARCHITECTURAL PROJECTION THAT ENHANCED THE ENTRANCE TO THE BUILDINGS.

THOSE ELEMENTS HAVE BEEN INCORPORATED INTO THE NEW COMMUNITY STORE BUILDING.

UM, ALSO INCLUDED OUR CANVAS AWNINGS DECORATIVE WALL MOUNTED MEDALLIONS AND WALL MOUNTED, TRELLISES SLIDE NUMBER SIX PROVIDES THE COLORS AND MATERIALS AS WELL AS, UH, SAMPLES OF THE DECORATIVE LIGHT FIXTURES, UM, THAT WILL BE UTILIZED IN THE NEW SERVICE STATION AS WELL AS THE, UH, CANOPY SLIDE NUMBER SEVEN, THE CANOPY IT'S DESIGNED WITH A HIP ROOF, UH, WITH TILE MATERIAL.

AND THIS WILL BE VERY SIMILAR TO THE COSTCO GASOLINE SERVICE STATIONS.

CAN IT BE LOCATED DIAGONALLY ACROSS BEACH BOULEVARD? THE CANOPY SUPPORTS OR THE COLUMNS WILL BE IMPROVED WITH THE BRICK VENEER THAT MATCHES THE VENEER FOUND ON THE TERROR ELEMENT OF THE COMMUNITY STORE.

BUILDING A SERVICE STATION WAS AN OPERATION FROM 1963 AND CEASED IN 2017.

DURING THAT TIMEFRAME, THE OPERATION OF A SERVICE STATION HAS NOT PROVEN TO BE INJURIOUS OR DETRIMENTAL TO THE PUBLIC WELFARE.

THE PROPOSED PROJECT HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO BE CONSISTENT WITH THE AESTHETIC GOALS, POLICIES, AND OBJECTIVES OF THE SPECIFIC PLAN.

THE PROPOSED ONSITE IMPROVEMENTS WILL ALSO ENHANCE BOTH CUSTOMER AND PUBLIC SAFETY BY PROVIDING SUFFICIENT VEHICLE MANEUVERING AREAS, PROVIDING, UH, CODE COMPLIANT, ONSITE PARKING, UH, AND A PEDESTRIAN PATH OF TRAVEL FROM LAMAR BOULEVARD TO THE COMEDIAN STORE.

CONDITIONS OF APPROVAL HAVE BEEN INCLUDED ON THE REQUESTED ACTIONS THAT HAVE ALSO BEEN IMPOSED ON SIMILAR PROJECTS THROUGHOUT THE CITY TO ENSURE COMPATIBILITY AND COMPLIANCE WITH CITY CODES AND ORDINANCES.

SINCE ALL THE REQUIRED FINDINGS CAN BE MADE FOR EACH OTHER REQUESTED ACTIONS.

IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSION APPROVE DESIGN REVIEW 19 DASH ZERO TWO CONDITIONS PERMIT 20 DASH 18 AND CONDITIONS PERMIT 19 DASH 19.

THIS CONCLUDES MY PRESENTATION, AND THEN I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS REPORT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, DAVID, AT THIS TIME, I'LL ASK THE COMMISSIONERS IF THEY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OF STAFF BY ROLL CALL, UH, COMMISSIONER PAUL, ANY QUESTIONS? NO QUESTIONS,

[00:20:01]

MR. MUNOZ, ANY QUESTIONS? YEAH.

UM, REGARDING THE ALCOHOL SALES, UM, I KNOW THAT, UM, WE'RE GETTING APPROVED FOR A TYPE 20 OR THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE REQUESTING, BUT THE CITY'S POLICY SAYS EITHER TYPE 20 OR 21, THAT'S CORRECT.

RIGHT.

BUT THEY WOULD ONLY BE ALLOWED A TYPE 20.

YES.

UH, THE TYPE 20 IS A REQUESTED, UM, LICENSED TYPE, BUT THEY HAVE THE OPTION OF PURCHASING AND ACQUIRING A TYPE 20 OR TYPE 21 ANYWHERE WITHIN THE CITY.

BUT LIKE, LET'S SAY THEY END UP ACQUIRING A TYPE 21.

THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO SELL MORE THAN JUST BEER AND WINE IF THEY ONLY GOT APPROVED FOR TYPE 20.

NO.

UM, IF THEY WERE TO ACQUIRE A TYPE 21, THAT LICENSE WOULD BE, UM, IN ESSENCE, UH, CANCELED AND THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO APPLY FOR THEIR TYPE 20.

SO WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO IS ACQUIRE, UH, A LICENSE WITHIN THE CITY, WHETHER IT'S A TYPE 20 OR 21, BUT THEY'RE ONLY GOING TO BE AUTHORIZED TO USE A TYPE 20 AT THIS PARTICULAR LOCATION.

OKAY.

JUST MAKING SURE THAT'S IT FOR ME ON QUESTIONS.
