Planning Commission Agenda
Thursday, September 15, 2016
7:00 P.M.

Council Chambers, City Hall
100 Civic Center Way, Calabasas, CA

The starting times listed for each agenda item should be considered as a guide only. The Planning Commission reserves the right to alter the order of the agenda to allow for an effective meeting. Attendance at the entire meeting may be necessary to ensure interested parties hear a particular item. The City values and invites written comments from residents on matters set for Planning Commission consideration. In order to provide commissioners ample time to review all correspondence, any written communication must be submitted to the City Clerk’s office before 5:00 p.m. on the Tuesday prior to the meeting.

7:00 P.M. – Opening Matters:

  • Call to Order / Roll Call of Commission Members

  • Pledge of Allegiance

  • Approval of Agenda

  • Announcements and Introductions

7:05 P.M. – Oral Communications – Public Comment:

For citizens wishing to address the Commission on matters not on the agenda

Consent Item(s):

1. (7:15 PM) Approval of Minutes: September 1, 2016

Public Hearing(s):

2. (7:25 P.M.) Proposed amendment to the City zoning regulations for development on properties located in significant ridgeline areas. The amendment would create an exception from the 50-foot ridgeline setback requirement for existing developed residential properties located with fifty (50) feet horizontally or fifty (50) feet vertically from a significant ridgeline, allowing for minor additions (up to 1,200 square feet) to existing residences and the addition of allowable accessory structures on the developed residentially zoned property without requiring such projects to obtain a ridgeline setback variance. The proposed amendment is consistent with similar ridgeline setback exception provisions already in place for properties located in nearby unincorporated Los Angeles County. This project is categorically exempt from CEQA review per the CEQA Guidelines, Sections 15301 and 15303. The Planning Commission will be making a recommendation to the City Council.
