The Board will conduct a hearing in consideration of Wedman et al. Appeal of the Planning Commission’s approval of the Don Angelo Design Review for the property at 110 Rosario Road/195 Resaca Ave., Forest Knolls (APN 169-243-16). On Feb. 10, the Planning Commission upheld by a 7-0 vote the administrative decision that conditionally approved the application to construct a new 1,932-square-foot residence with a parking pad on a 10,206-square-foot lot. On behalf of the Planning Commission, staff recommends the Board deny the appeal filed by Brady Wedman, et. al., and sustain the Planning Commission's action by adopting a resolution to approve the project.

Review

The Board adopted Resolution No. 2014-25 denying the Wedman et al. appeal and conditionally approving the Don Angelo Design Review.
