REPORT NARRATIVE:

On May 18, 2016, the City Council Introduced Ordinance No. 2200 New Series, by the Following Roll Call Vote: AYES: Carr, Constantine, Librers, Siebert, Tate; NOES: None; ABSTAIN: None; ABSENT: None.

 

This ordinance will extend the 22, FY 2014-15 building allocations assigned to the Sherimar Ranch project by 12 months thereby changing the Commencement of Construction date within Exhibit B of the project development agreement to June 30, 2017.  The circumstances where the two remaining lots have been retained by the original land owner are unique.  The absence of a developer to constructed units on the lots creates a circumstance where the lots will be developed as custom lots which traditionally take more time to develop.

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT:                     Inform

The required public hearing notice was published in the May 6, 2016 edition of the Morgan Hill Times for the minimum 10-day noticing period. Property owners within 300 feet of the subject properties were notified of the DAA hearing 10 days prior to the scheduled public hearing

 

ALTERNATIVE ACTIONS:

None

 

PRIOR CITY COUNCIL AND COMMISSION ACTIONS:

The Planning Commission considered the DAA's at their April 26, 2016 meeting. Based on the information presented, the Planning Commission determined that the delays to commencement of construction were not a result of developer inaction. The Planning Commission recommended that the City Council approve the DAA's requested.

 

FISCAL AND RESOURCE IMPACT:

The applicants have paid the application fees applied to their project.

 

CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act): 

Project, Description of CEQA requirements
