(Attachment E) Land Use Committee Report
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: DRC2012-00121 CALTRANS Minor Use Permit for the proposed demolition of a single family residence (SFR) for the Hwy 1 realignment project. Site located off Via Piedras Blancas. APN:011-231-013. Proposed Action Applicant is the California Department of Transportation (Cal Trans). Cal Trans is requesting a Minor Use Permit for the proposed demolition of a SFR (vacation rental)located at 00255 Piedras Blancas Rd—inland side of Highway One approx. ¼ mile north of Piedras Blancas motel. The SFR is located on 3.61 Acres.This MUP, requiring demolition of the SFR on APN 011-231-013/State Parcel 11401-1. has been fragmented from the Highway 1 realignment project Coastal DevelopmentPermit under review with the California Coastal Commission. This demolition MUP is with San Luis Obispo County and is an essential preliminary step in the realignmentproject. At this time the project referral before the Land Use Committee is for the SFR demolition only.The State of California has obtained an Order of Possession for portions of the above mentioned parcel in which the SFR is situated, however the State does not currently ownthe parcel in fee, as this settlement will not be complete until finalization of the eminent domain proceedings. The Order of Possession authorizes the State of California to takepossession and use of State Parcels 11401-1 and to remove the SFR situated on this parcel.
Purpose (Background) The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to realign approximately 2.8 miles of the highway inland, outside of the area where erosion is predicted to be the most severe over the next 100 years. The proposed project would move the highway a maximum of 475 feet east of the existing highway. The new segment would have two standard 12-foot lanes with 8-foot shoulders and include three bridges. The rock facing that has helped to stabilize the bluffs at two locations within the project limits would be removed. The purpose of the project is to provide a long-term solution to the adverse effects of shoreline erosion on the segment of Highway 1 from just north of the Piedras Blancas Lighthouse to the Arroyo de la Cruz Bridge. The project was initiated due to severe coastal erosion that threatens to undermine the highway. The temporary shore armoring currently in place is not sufficient to protect the road; a long-term solution is required. The goal is to prevent coastal bluff erosion from adversely affecting future operation of the highway for the next 100 years. The first step in the demolition project is an asbestos survey report. Then all metals will be removed from the demolition debris and recycled. The remainder of the demolition debris will go to the landfill. No trees will be removed. The septic tank will be removed and the hole backfilled. The area where the building and concrete once existed will be covered to reduce the movement of soil in case of rain. Land Use Committee members met with Cal Trans project manager Paul Martinez and reviewed the project plans; received a complete description (along with photos and maps) of the Highway 1 realignment project and demolition. Committee members also viewed the demolition site. Mr. Martinez explained the demolition process and we discussed with him our concerns and recommendations for recycling as much of the SFR material as possible and if possible donating any material to a non- profit such as habitat for humanity.
Recommend Approval with the salvaging of the steel and recyclable parts.

1) SUB2013-00011 COAL 13-0067 RANDALL (SFR) – Lot line adjustment proposed between lots to donate 4.78 acres for permanent open space. 5.43 acre project site located off Bradford Circle in Cambria. APN: 024-301-028 and 031.
Summary: An agreement has been reached between homeowner Margaret Randall and Greenspace – the Cambria Land Trust for the donation of a forested portion of the Randall property as protected open space. This lot line adjustment is needed in order to create the proposed 4.78-acre open space as legally separate from the owner-retained residence on .65 acre.
Recommendation: Approve without conditions
2) DRC2012-00052 CAMBRIA PINES APARTMENTS (MFR)/ PSHH (REVISED).
Request for a Development Plan/Coastal Development Permit to construct a new 33-unit affordable housing apartment complex with a common building for residents. Totalbuilding floor area would be 34,850 square feet. This is a revision of the original request for a 40-unit apartment project. The project is located off Schoolhouse Lane in Cambria on 2.46 acres. APN: 013-151-034
Summary: This revised project plan has been produced by a different architectural firm than the original submission of December, 2012. Architect Lauren Luker, Rea and Luker Architects, met with LUC for both site visit and LUC meeting. The new plan has addressed many of the LUC and Traffic Committee concerns relating to the earlier project design – redesign and reconfiguration of residential buildings, community building moved away from NW edge of property, traffic flow and parking improved, stormwater control bioswales created, fencing and a stepped retaining wall separating the project from donated open space, trash enclosures provided. In discussion, however, there was:
(1) unanimous concern over a landscaping plan which included drip irrigation and no plan for use of captured/stored nonpotable water for that irrigation (2) concern that there was inadequate assurance that there would be no trails or trail access over the dedicated open space to the west of the project
(3) concern with the possibility that community water supply might not be adequate to serve the project even though an Intent to Serve letter has been issued by CCSD
(4) unanimous agreement that this project, should water supply prove adequate. ought to have precedence over any other new construction. (5)concern on the part of a majority of the committee members present that there are inadequate parking spaces (in spite of compliance with County minimum requirements), i.e. one space for a one-bedroom unit leading to parking on a public street The current Traffic Committee concern with adequacy for drainage of aggregate along the SE side of the access road was also noted. A vote was taken with the points mentioned above taken into consideration, to recommend approval or disapproval of the revised project. Recommendation: The motion to approve this project was defeated, by committee vote of 3 – 2.
3) DRC2013-00015 RICE (SFR)– Minor use permit for the proposed addition to an existing SFR including a 565 sf (2) car garage, 255 sf of living space, 473 sf of covered porch, and 568 sf patio trellis. Project site located off Warren Road in Cambria. APN: 023-035-020.
Summary: This application is for a previously approved project which lapsed because an extension deadline was missed. It is a remodel of a one-story single family residence which also includes some interior alterations involving an office space and two bedrooms. It also changes roof elevations as it creates a pitched-roof system to replace the original flat roof. After meeting with owner Julia Rice on site and discussion at our meeting, the consensus was that, especially considering the revised roof lines and current/ongoing water concerns, we encourage the inclusion of a rainwater capture system as well as the use of permeable surfaces for garage and patio.
Recommendation: Approval with suggestions for rainwater capture
4) SUB2013-00013 COAL 13-0072 DECKER (AG) – Lot line adjustment between two parcels creating one parcel of 340.40 acres and one parcel of 285.69 acres. Project site located Monte Cristo Place in Cambria. APN: 013-181-020 and 013-201-046.
Summary: The owners of adjoining parcels have agreed to an essentially equal exchange of portions of their respective parcels by alteration of a straight property line. The original straight lot line runs through the corrals and an old homestead and immediately adjacent to a barn structure belonging to the applicant; the new lot line would allow more of an envelope around this area. A LUC site visit and discussion led to a unanimous recommendation.
Recommendation: Approve without conditions
Submitted 10/8/2013 Laurel Stewart, Chair NCAC Land Use Committee
Attachment G CAMBRIA PINES LODGE Project Description: DRC2011-00032 Pacific Cambria Inc., – Minor Use Permit APN # 023-431-003, 2905 Burton Drive, Cambria Aug. 29, 2013 Description provided by Architect but no new description verified from SLO County: The Cambria Christmas Market is a recurring Temporary Event to occur 5 evenings per week from 5-9 pm starting the day after Thanksgiving and ending 23 December each year from 2012-2016, open to the public similar to many Christmas markets in Europe as part of the community wide Holiday in the Pines event coordinated by the Cambria Chamber of Commerce. The Cambria Christmas Market will have extensive holiday lighting, food and merchandise for sale in village setting adjacent to the Cambria Pines Lodge on a previously developed path that connects to the Cambria Nursery.
For 2013: 3 permanent structures less than 120 sf in area 29 temporary structures constructed of 4 wall panels & 2 roof sections screwed together Structures to be dismantled removed and stored at Cambria Nursery between events Structures are to be used for storage of materials and goods for the Christmas Market For 2014 and beyond: Up to 47 temporary structures constructed of 4 wall panels & 2 roof sections screwed together. Structures to be dismantled, removed and stored at Cambria Nursery between events Structures are to be used for storage of materials and goods for the Christmas Market RECOMMENDATION: Revised application, updated General Application, or Land Use Permit application containing all specifics from SLO County has not yet been received as of 9/10/13. The Land Use Committee is awaiting the revised project description and site plans to make a determination regarding permitting authority and compliance for this project. Prior to the issuance of building permits a Final Drainage Plan, Final Landscape Plan, Pine Forest Enhancement and Revegetation Plan, temporary event and parking plan, tree protection and replacement, and performance agreements relating to construction that has already occurred at this site is needed: Due to ongoing conversations regarding the plans that have not yet been completed, project description, parking, enforcement, temporary event compliance, and unpermitted development in Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Area (ESHA) the LUC recommends denial. LAND USE ISSUES: The following LUC issues are based on the original 2012 MUP in addition to conversations with area residents, County planning and Chief Miller, 2 site visits, and emails from architect and others received by the LUC as of 9/3/13. Conditions placed on the Lodge expansion in the 2003 California Coastal Commission decision W12-A-8-2003 state “All conditions of SLO County become conditions of this permit. Where there is a conflict between the conditions of the local approval and the terms of this permit, the terms of this permit shall control.” These conditions included development and construction in ESHA, defensible space limitations, requirement of no net increase in water use, compliance with Drainage, Erosion, Sedimentation and Stormwater Management plans.
1. Water use should be verified in compliance with CSD monitoring plan to offset 700,000 gallons per day per CCC Commission condition W12-A-8-2003 and no net increase in water use allowed with future development. 2. 30 foot setbacks from property line of all event structures, permanent or temporary, in existence or proposed that does not require removal of any living Monterey pine or pine forest understory. Any and all structures constructed that violate this condition must be removed and areas revegetated per CCC Commission condition W12-A-8-2003. 3. All decks and construction, proposed or existing, require building permits and compliance with W12-A-8-2003. SLO Board of Supervisors Lodge Development Plan states that prior to the issuance of building permits conditional compliance includes but is not limited to Final Drainage Plan, Final Landscape Plan, Pine Forest Enhancement and Revegetation Plan, tree protection and replacement, and performance agreements relating to construction that has already occurred at this site:
1. Engineered drainage plan needed to include velocity, quantity and pattern of runoff connected with event buildings, new landscaping and construction of parking lots. Plan must be completed and approved prior to construction.
2. All runoff contained on site to prevent pollution of Santa Rosa Creek and riparian habitat areas downhill. Special consideration should be taken with construction affecting runoff into Martindale, Piney Way and Rogers Street.
3. Cleared area downhill from amphitheater needs to be revegetated before the rainy season due to location above Burton Drive and Santa Rosa Creek. NCAP Chapter 7 G No understory vegetation shall be removed until a permit has been issued.
4. Condition 27 required no grading or construction within 50 feet of remaining trees and no fill was to be placed near root zones. New construction inconsistent with this requirement.
5. Code enforcement violations from 2012 (as outlined in SLO County’s August 19, 2013 email) are NOT resolved and $438 fine not paid. 23.07.170 (6) Critically evaluate “after-the-fact” permit applications where un-permitted development has illegally encroached into setback areas before off-site mitigation is considered. Evaluate all options of restoring and enhancing the pre-existing on-site habitat values. Off-site mitigation consisting of replacing the area of disturbance with like habitat at a minimum of 3:1 ratio shall be an additional requirement to offset the temporary impacts of the violation and address the potential for restoration efforts to fail. As confirmed in NCAC 11/28/12 minutes a unanimous decision was made to deny Lodge project due to ‘after-the-fact’ permit application.
Traffic and Safety
1. Trained safety personnel and crossing guards are needed.
2. Crowd control measures are needed.
3. Fire safety measures are needed.
4. The Traffic Committee recommendations may be insufficient for the projected event attendance of approx. 2,000 per night. a. Parking must be adequately verified for projected event attendance in addition to requirements for hotel parking offsite as set forth in Section 23.04.166c(9) and in 23.08.262. [Amended 1995, Ord. 2715] b. Off-street parking is to be provided for private events with such parking consisting at minimum, of an open area with a slope of 10 percent or less, at a ratio of 400 square feet per car on a lot free of combustible material per Title 23 CZLUO 23.08.248d(2) c. Temporary Parking in ESHA i. According to the development plan, there shall be no grading in the forest within 50 feet of ESHA. Area unable to be returned to natural state following removal of understory vegetation and adding gravel to create parking spaces. ii. Large oak tree in temporary parking area shall be protected. iii. Runoff from all surfaces subject to vehicular traffic shall be filtered through an engineered filtration system specifically designed to remove vehicular contaminants. All filtered runoff shall be directed offsite in such a manner as to avoid erosion and /or sedimentation per CCC W12-A-8-2003.

1. The Traffic Committee was unanimous in recommending the Eaton X Burton since that project could be finished with the monies available. The Main St. project would only be partially completed with those funds.
2. To: NCAC Land Use Committee October 7th, 2013 From NCAC Traffic Committee RE: Recommendations for Peoples Self Help Project It is the Traffic Committees recommendation that the plan as presented at the October 7th meeting meets criteria in all areas of road and parking with one recommendation. It is our understanding that this project would mimic the similar apartment project next door, and that this project would also have the same issue of off street parking on the access road (Schoolhouse). The plan shows a 40’ roadway that narrows going to the south where the plan shows an aggregate base bio-swale. Would this area be used for parking? And if such, would this base material be adequate for this use and not degrade over time. Our recommendation is that this area be scrutinized by the county as to its appropriate material and use.
