The Extension of Time only applies to the off-site improvements waiver. The owner has not been able to install the required off-sites due to the current business down turn. The TAB was concerned with and discussed the following:
landscape Use Permit is valid until
· During the last land use plan, the area south of Cougar was planned for residential
· The current zoning is H-2
· The current traffic demand is adequately accommodated with the current road configuration.
· The off-sites are built in the future
· Residential is abutting to the south and west
The Public Works condition for a restrictive covenant allows the County to demand the off-sites be installed in the future. The TAB recommended two additional conditions. First, a design review as a public hearing because the current H-2 zone district could allow a different business to be established on this property. The public hearing would help ensure compatibility with the abutting residential. Second, the waiver review date brings the use permit and the waiver in sync. The applicant agreed to both conditions.

1) Access to the paseo and 15 foot wide easement be provided along the north and south sides of the development site, if easement is required;

3) Driveway length to be a minimum of 20 feet
in conjunction with a proposed single family
subdivision on 5.0 acres in an R-2 (Medium Density Residential) Zone. Generally located on the south side of
This item generated significant discussion between the applicant, residents and the TAB. The central point of contention is what standards should be applied to the outparcels in Mountain’s Edge. The Tenaya Paseo/drainage has been developed to eighty feet with landscaping and other open space amenities. The applicant would prefer to not dedicate land to paseo and use the land for additional houses.
The TAB was concerned with and discussed the following:
· This property will set a precedent for other outparcels within the Mountain’s Edge Master Plan area.
· The Paseo is open space for the area residents
· The applicant stated the project would have an HOA
· Public Works does not want responsibility for this section of the Paseo
· The standard practice in Mountain’s Edge is the open space is the responsibility of the HOA
· In Mountain’s Edge, open space is landscaped by the developer and turned over to the HOA.
· The park fees collected will go to the County general fund not the Mountain’s Edge park fund.
· Reduced Paseo width may present repair problems for the Mountain’s Edge Master HOA
· Residents to the east were expecting an 80 ft. Paseo and may have paid a premium for their lots.
The TAB opinion is the standards established for Mountain’s Edge should be maintained to produce consistent neighborhoods. Outparcel development must be consistent with those standards. The Tenaya Paseo should be consistent throughout its entire length in design and width. The Waiver of Conditions #2 should not be granted.
