Memorandum
Approval of this resolution will allow for the construction of a second story addition to this office building and add landscaping and storm water detention facilities to the site.

Petition Summary:

* The Site Plan proposes removing the second floor of the eastern portion of this office building and constructing a 2,451 square foot full second floor over the entire building, for a new total of 4,645 square feet. A curb cut on the north side of the building will be removed.

* A Landscape Modification is requested to modify the required interior parking lot landscaping and right-of-way landscaping requirements to protect the critical root zones of 2 landmark trees. The petitioner proposes to relocate proposed plantings from the critical root zones of the trees to areas south of the driveway and along the edge of the proposed entry walkway to meet the intent of the Landscape Ordinance.

The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of March 18, 2014, recommended approval of the site plan and landscape modification request.
