Summary: The Fire Department is proposing street naming and addressing standards for adoption as part of the Development standards to provide for consistency standards as new development occurs. The standards have previously been enforced as policy rather than adopted code. Appropriate street names and addresses are important to public safety as well as public convenience.
G-2 SUP-12-039 For Possible Action: To consider a Special Use Permit request from Matt Rogers (property owner: William Kugler) for a 5-year review of a previously approved Special Use Permit to allow the continued use of an existing billboard on property zoned General Commercial (GC), located at 800 Old Clear Creek Road, APN 009-302-09. (Kathe Green)
Summary: Special Use Permits for billboards are valid for five years and then must be renewed. The applicant is requesting to continue the existing billboard in the present location. No changes are proposed to the billboard.
