Mitigated Negative Declaration - 467 First Street

Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration


October 9, 2013

New Office Building, 467 First Street

The proposed project is the redevelopment of the site with a new 17,156 square-foot office building and one level of underground parking. The existing site, which includes four separate parcels, is currently developed with a 1,460 square-foot restaurant (Burger Town) at 448 South San Antonio Road, an 840 square-foot dog grooming business (the Barking Lot) at 467 First Street and a vacant lot (formerly a Chevron gas station) at 470 South San Antonio Road. The proposed project would consolidate these parcels, along with a portion of public alley right-of-way, into one site and construct a new three-story building with 16 parking spaces at grade and 29 spaces in a one-level below grade garage. The project would include access via the public alley and South San Antonio Road for the surface parking lot and a driveway off of First Street for the underground parking.

The proposed project also includes a General Plan Land Use Map amendment to designate the portion of public alley right-of-way as Downtown Commercial, a Zoning Map amendment to designate the entire site as Commercial Downtown/Multiple-Family (CD/R3), and a Variance application to allow 45 onsite parking spaces where 52 onsite parking spaces are required by the City’s Zoning Ordinance (Chapter 14.74).
