NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT a public hearing will be held by the City Council of the City of Dana Point to consider the following:

APPEAL OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION’S DECISION TO DENY THE APPEAL AND UPHOLD THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR’S APPROVAL OF MINOR SITE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT SDP21-0009(M): A request to construct a 739 square-foot living area addition to a 1,574 square-foot single-family residence in the Residential Single Family 7 (RSF 7) Zoning District was approved by the Community Development Director on August 17, 2021. The project was appealed by the neighbor and the appeal was heard by the Planning Commission on September 27, 2021. A minor Site Development Permit is required to construct an addition greater than 10 percent of gross floor area to a nonconforming structure, pursuant to DPMC Section 9.63.030(a). The structure is nonconforming because the existing attached two-car garage does not meet the required 20’ depth of an interior parking stall by 3”, encroaches 7” into the 20’ front setback, and 5” into the required 5’ side setback. The proposed upper-level additions meet all current development standards. On October 11, 2021, an appeal of the Planning Commission’s decision to deny the appeal was filed by Gerald and Shelly Egner who reside at 34722 Calle Fortuna.
