Summary:  The applicant is proposing to reduce the required lot size, lot dimensions and setback requirements of two parcels in the Single Family 1 Acre zoning district in order to facilitate a proposed lot line adjustment between the two parcels to change the configuration of the parcels. One of the existing parcels that is 0.71 acre in size will become larger at 1.34 acres and the other presently 1.13 acre in size will become smaller at .51 acre.

F-1(B)  ADM-15-037  For Possible Action:  To consider a request for an Administrative Permit from Albert Replogle (property owner: Albert Replogle) to allow detached accessory structures of 50-75% of the size of the primary structure on property zoned Single Family One Acre (SF1A), located at 4151 Ponderosa Dr., APN 008-148-16.  (Kathe Green)  LATE INFORMATION

Summary: The proposed lot line adjustment associated with this application and the associated Variance application (VAR-15-022) will result in this parcel getting an additional detached accessory structure, which results in the total area of the detached accessory structures on this parcel increasing to 73%. Approval of an Administrative Permit is required to have detached accessory structures that, in aggregate, are between 50% and 75% of the main structure size. No new accessory structures are being constructed.  The Department Director has referred this application to the Planning Commission to be reviewed concurrently with the Variance application.
