Addressing the Planning Commission’s comments, Deputy City Manager Thornhill offered the following: • • • • • • • That a world-class architect will be involved in the design work of the future Civic Center That it would be hopeful that the first-phase of the Civic Center would be in the Capital Improvement Program (CIP), and approved by the City Council in 2006 That the plaza will be designed to accommodate paseos That underground parking will be considered for the parking structure That utilities will be under grounded in Old Town That 350 to 400 parking spaces will be provided in the parking structure, which will be for employees of the Civic Center and Old Town patrons That the future parking structure will be a three-story parking structure, but will appear to be a two-story structure from the streetscape.

Thanking Deputy City Manager Thornhill for his PowerPoint Presentation, the Planning Commission expressed its excitement toward the future Civic Center in Old Town. At this time, public hearing item Nos. 10 and 9 were addressed out of order. PUBLIC HEARING ITEMS 10 Planning Application No. PA05-0167, a Development Plan, submitted by Pulte Home Corporation, for a 21 acre multi-family housing development consisting of 71 buildings with a total of 213 individually owned attached triplex units, located near the westerly end of Temecula Senior Planner Papp stated that due to outstanding issues with the Community Services Division, staff would request that Item No. 10 be continued to the May 3, 2006, Planning Commission meeting. MOTION: Commissioner Chiniaeff moved to continue Item No. 10 to the May 3, 2006, Planning Commission meeting. Commissioner Telesio seconded the motion and voice vote reflected approval with the exception of Commissioner Carey who abstained. 9 Planning Application No. PA06-0018 and PA06-0019, a Major Modification to a Development Plan including the architectural elevations for multi-family residential buildings and retail/office buildings, submitted by MDMG, Inc, to replace two speculative building pads with a retail store totaling 17,500 square feet, modification of the recreation center, modification of the residential roof plans and a Conditional Use Permit for a drivethru pharmacy, located on Rancho California Road approximately 300 feet east from Moraga Road

Senior Planner Papp provided the Commission with a staff report (of written material), and advised that since the writing of staff’s report, staff has received three letters from residents who would be in opposition to the proposed project. Responding to the Planning Commissions queries, Senior Planner Papp noted the following: • That there would be no Condition of Approval that would prohibit a retail store (Rite Aid) from having alcohol sales; that the recent changes to the Development Code would allow retail stores of this nature, throughout the City in Commercial zones, to sell alcohol without a Conditional Use Permit (CUP); and that staff has insured that all requirements have been met in order to provide a drive-through pharmacy That the size of the proposed Recreation Center was reduced to 3,719 square feet, and that there will be a separate exercise room which will be an additional 720 square feet

That the Planned Development Overlay (PDO), was reviewed by the City Council with revised elevations that were prepared by the applicant; that the City Council approved the PDO with its revised elevations, with the original Condition of Approval that the elevations be brought back to the Planning Commission for its consideration That grading on the proposed site was dropped by eight-feet That there would be an approved and recorded vested map which would show the layout of the residential and commercial buildings.

In response to Commissioner Chiniaeff’s query as to the affect on the Vesting Tentative Tract Map by modifying the original site plan, City Attorney Thorson advised that the modifications will not have an impact on the Vesting Map because the map established the parcels, not the design approval for the site. City Attorney Thorson concurred with Commissioner Chiniaeff that the modifications will be completed within the original parcels of the Map; and therefore, the Vesting Map will not be affected. Further clarifying, Director of Planning Ubnoske stated that nothing will change with regard to the Map; and that staff would only be requesting that the Planning Commission look at the Development Plan. For informational purposes, City Attorney Thorson stated that what is being requested would be to change the site plan within the parameters of the PDO. Referencing comments made by the Planning Commission, Senior Planner Papp stated the following: • That the Planned Development Overlay anticipated a child day care center and a restaurant; that the Rite Aid Drug Store and Pharmacy would be a permitted use in the use matrix; and that the hours of operation for Rite Aid would be 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m., seven days a week That the proposed application would not require a Conditional Use Permit (CUP); and that therefore, the application would not be subject to a 500-foot separation requirement.

•

With regard to Condition of Approval No. 74, City Attorney Thorson stated that the condition would be a standard Condition of Approval (COA) which would impose that the Developer pay the Transportation Uniform Mitigation Fee (TUMPF); but that it was recently brought to the attention of staff that due to it being a Vesting Tract Map, the developer may not subject to that fee; that he would recommend that the Condition of Approval be retained; and that a clause at the end of Condition of Approval No. 74 be added to state: unless exempt under applicable law; advising that this would allow the City Attorney to further review the condition. At this time, the public hearing was opened. Thanking staff for its efforts with the proposed project, Mr. Larry Markham, representing the applicant, offered the following information to the Planning Commission: • • • That the pharmacy pick-up window would be located at the rear of the Rite Aid building, away from the street That the loading dock will be screened and would not be viewed from the main street That the applicant would be in agreement with the added clause to the end of Condition of Approval No. 74, as requested by City Attorney Thorson

• • • • • •

That the applicant’s Vesting Tract Map was approved and recorded; and that the applicant would be willing to provide to the City Attorney the date of submittal, date deemed to be complete, and date of approval and recordation That the applicant willingly offered to underground all the utility lines in front of the proposed site, which would enhance the esthetics of the area That the architect and representative of Rite Aid would be available for any questions That the applicant would be of the opinion that residential elevations would be a substantial enhancement over what was inherited when MJW Property Group purchased the property That the City Council approved a gas station for the site plan That in order to accommodate the Rite Aid from the recorded Vesting Tract Map, the Rite Aid would require a lot-line adjustment.

Mr. Scott Hanson, Temecula, spoke in favor of the proposed project and suggested that if the applicant were to raise the roofline, he would be desirous of having the grading lowered. Relaying her support for the proposed project, Ms. Monica Sams-Oder, representing Mira Loma and Rancho Apartments, read a letter written by Helen and Bob Oder, whom have requested that any run-off water from rains, storms, and irrigation, be addressed. Via overheads, Mr. Robert Oder, representing Mira Loma and Rancho Apartments, spoke highly of the proposed project, but encouraged that the easement and dedication documents be addressed. Addressing a comment made by Mr. Hanson, Mr. Larry Markham stated that the site was lowered eight feet from the original plan; that two buildings were lowered from two-floors to three floors, with an additional nine foot plate height; and that if the Planning Commission were desirous of adding a Condition to confirm Mr. Hanson’s concern, the applicant would be willing to accept such a condition. By way of photos, Mr. Markham addressed Mr. Oder’s concern with regard to easement and dedication documents; and relayed his willingness to provide staff with record documents from the adjacent map for review. Thanking the Planning Commission and staff, Mr. Markham requested the Commission’s consideration of the proposed project. Commissioner Telesio relayed his support for the proposed project but did express some concern with the Vesting Tract Map. Further clarifying Commissioner Telesio’s concern with the Vesting Tract Map, City Attorney Thorson stated that per the Subdivision Map Act Section, when a Map is deemed complete, the City would be bound at that time, to apply all Laws, Rules, Ordinances, and policies in affect; that as the Map moves forward, the parcels would be set forth on the Map; and that the Ordinances and Rules that govern the project would freeze in place; and that the Planning Commission would not only be vesting the lot-line, but vesting the Ordinances, Policies and Zoning standards that were in place at the time the map was deemed complete. For the Planning Commission, Director of Planning Ubnoske requested that the following two Conditions of Approval be added: • • That under General Conditions -- that the hours of operations for Rite Aid shall be 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., seven days a week That prior to the issuance of a building permit for Rite Aid, a lot-line adjustment shall be filed and recorded with the City

C:\Documents and Settings\jonathan.hall\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK1\041906 (2).doc 4

• •

That the language: unless exempt under applicable law, be added to the end of Condition of Approval No. 74. That the maximum height of any elevation be exactly as was shown in the original approval.

MOTION: Commissioner Guerriero moved to approve staff recommendation subject to the following: That under General Conditions -- that the hours of operations for Rite Aid shall be 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., seven days a week; that prior to the issuance of a building permit for Rite Aid, a lot-line adjustment shall be filed and recorded with the City; that the language: unless exempt under applicable law, be added to the end of Condition of Approval No. 74; and that the maximum height of any elevation be exactly as was shown in the original approval. Commissioner Telesio seconded the motion. (Additional discussion ensued prior to the vote; see below.) Commission Chiniaeff expressed concern with the proposed project, advising that the City Council has usurped the ability to approve anything; and that he would be of the opinion that the installation of a Rite Aid, including a drive-through pharmacy would not be compatible with the nature of the adjacent uses in the area. At this time, the voice vote of the previously made motion reflected approval, with the exception of Commissioner Chiniaeff who voted No. PC RESOLUTION NO. 06-031 A RESOLUTION OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF TEMECULA APPROVING PLANNING APPLICATION NO. PA06-0018 A MAJOR MODIFICATION TO A DEVELOPMENT PLAN INCLUDING FINAL ARCHITECTURAL ELEVATIONS FOR THE MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS AND RETAIL/OFFICE BUILDINGS; REPLACING TWO SPECULATIVE BUILDING PADS WITH A DRUG-STORE TOTALING 17, 500 SQUARE FEET (RITE-AID); MODIFICATION OF THE RECREATION CENTER, AND MODIFICATION OF THE ROOF PLANS); AND PA06-0019 A CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT FOR A DRIVE-THROUGH PHARMACY At 7:29 p.m., the Planning Commission took a 10-minute break.

That the Rancho Temecula Town Center was approved by the City Council with a Conditional Use Permit (CUP), which would allow for a total of four drive-thru facilities to be established within the Development Plan; and that per Condition of Approval No. 8, if future tenants were to request the sale of alcohol, a separate Conditional Use Permit shall be submitted for review and approval by the Planning Commission That the drive-thru would only be for pharmacy use; and that if it were the desire of the Planning Commission, staff could add a Conditional of Approval that would state that the drive-thru would specifically be for pharmacy usage That staff would be of the opinion that the AM/PM mini market across the street does not offer any alcohol sales That staff verified that the proposed use would not be closer than 500-feet to Chaparral High School.

Commissioner Chiniaeff expressed concern with the proposed project’s close proximity to Chaparral High School. For the Commission, Associate Planner Linton advised that Beverages and More at the Rancho Temecula Town Center was approved for alcohol sales. At this time, the public hearing was opened. Mr. Matthew Fagan, representing the applicant, stated the following: • • • That although Chaparral High School would be directly across the street from the proposed use, it would meet the requirement of 500 feet criteria That rigorous Conditions of Approval have been imposed on the project by the City and Police Department That Rite Aid will be imposing a strenuous and focused training program on its employees with regard to sale of alcohol and tobacco.

Understanding that there would be a fence along the perimeter of Chaparral High School, Commissioner Chiniaeff expressed concern with the location of sales of alcohol across the street; and relayed his opinion that the corner of Winchester Road and Nicolas Road (Rite Aid) may result in a hangout for teenagers. Mr. Tobe Koski, District Manager representing Rite Aid Drug Stores, offered the following: • • That the proposed Rite Aid will be using a computer-based training program to train its employees That Rite Aid would also impose a zero tolerance policy with regard to selling of alcohol to minors.

At this time, the public hearing was closed. Reiterating his concern with the proximity of alcohol sales across the street from the high school, Commissioner Chiniaeff stated that he would be of the opinion that the sale of alcohol across the street from any high school should not be permitted. Understanding that Rite Aid will be imposing a training course with regard to the sale of alcohol to its employees, Commissioner Telesio stated that it would be his opinion that if any minor was determined to buy alcohol, a distance of 500-feet would not be a deterrent; and that he would not be opposed to the sale of alcohol, but would strongly encourage a heavy policy if a violation were to occur.

MOTION: Commissioner Telesio moved to approve staff recommendation. This motion died for lack of a second. Echoing Commissioner Chiniaeff’s concerns, Commissioner Harter would also be of the opinion that due to the close proximity of the high school, the proposed use would not be an appropriate location for alcohol sales. Reiterating his concern with Rite Aid becoming a hangout for teens, Commissioner Carey stated that he would also be of the opinion that the sale of alcohol in such a close proximity of a high school would not be appropriate. Speaking in opposition of the City’s over-concentrated liquor licenses, Chairman Guerriero stated that the location of the proposed use would be a concern, but that he would be willing to consider approval, if the applicant, would be willing to have the Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) perform extensive training for Rite Aid employees. At this time, the public hearing was re-opened. Mr. Tobe Koski, representing Rite Aid Stores, stated that not only would Rite Aid employees be subject to a computer-based training program, but that employees would also be subject to training videos with regard to ABC laws. Commissioner Telesio queried on the difference between the proposed site compared to any other commercial zone. Referencing Commissioner Telesio’s query, City Attorney Thorson informed that when the proposed project was approved, a requirement was imposed that all uses would need to go through the Conditional Use Permit process; that regardless of what the general law would be, a condition was placed that would require the project to have a CUP; and that all concerns expressed by the Planning Commission may be expressed and implemented through a CUP. Commissioner Chiniaeff stated that, in his opinion, Finding of Public Convenience or Necessity cannot be made for the following reasons: • • • That the proposed uses would not be compatible with the nature, condition, and development of adjacent land uses That the proposed use would have an adverse effect on adjacent land uses That the proposed use would result in an excessive number of similar establishments in close proximity.

MOTION: Commissioner Chiniaeff moved to deny staff recommendation based on the fact that a Finding of Public Convenience or Necessity cannot be met advising that this would also apply to the Conditional Use Permit. Commissioner Harter seconded the motion. (Additional discussion ensued prior to the vote; see below.) At this time, the public hearing was re-opened. Requesting a continuance, Mr. Matthew Fagan, stated that a continuation would allow the applicant and staff time to address the Commission’s concerns. At this time, the public hearing was closed. At this time, the voice vote on the previously made motion reflected approval with the exception of Commissioner Telesio who voted No.

In response to questions raised by the Planning Commission, Mr. West noted the following: • • That in-lieu parking fees in Old Town would be for new parking structures or additional surface parking lots That a homeowner desirous of any exterior or interior changes to a historic structure would need to submit an application through the Planning Department; that the application would be forwarded to the Old Town Local Review for consideration, to be followed by the Planning Commission for final approval.

C:\Documents and Settings\jonathan.hall\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK1\041906 (2).doc 9

Helping to clarify historic structures for the Planning Commission, City Attorney Thorson noted that all historic buildings would be designated on a Historic Register list through the Building and Safety Department; that no building permits would be issued until the appropriate processes have been taken; and that homeowners of historic structures would need to disclose any historical designation or special zoning requirements for the building at the time of sale. For the Planning Commission, Associate Planner West noted that there would be language in the Old Town Specific Plan that would impose that if any person were to demolish or remove a historic structure, in violation of the Historic Register section, no buildings permits would be allowed for a seven year period. The following comments were provided by Associate Planner West: • • That mixed-use projects would require one, on-site parking space for each proposed residential unit That staff would also propose, as part of a provision, that if a parking requirement cannot be met, the applicant may petition the Director of Planning to pay an “in-lieu” parking fee.

At this time, the public hearing was opened. Mr. Scott Crone, Temecula, thanked staff for its involvement with the future plans of Old Town, and relayed support of the one-parking space per residential unit requirement with regard to the types of businesses which would be viable around and adjacent to the future plaza, Mr. Crone encouraged staff to hold a well-advertised development workshop that would be open to all citizens of Temecula, advising that this would allow citizens to express what types of businesses would be viable for the Old Town area. Mr. Roger Epperson, Temecula, respectfully requested a continuance of Item No. 6 until a comprehensive plan could be implemented and available for the public for full discussion. At this time, the public hearing was closed. In response to Mr. Epperson’s concerns with regard to parking in Old Town, Director of Redevelopment Meyer noted the following: • • • • • • That for more than a year, staff monitored the parking situation in Old Town; and that a parking survey was performed That currently there would be 1,300 parking spaces in Old town, which would include onstreet public parking, off-street public parking, and off-street private parking That the surveys would be performed every three weeks That the results of the survey would indicate that significantly less than 50% of the parking spaces are being utilized That since adoption of the Old Town Specific Plan, the City has created 400 off-street public parking spaces That since the opening of the Old Town Temecula Community Theater, parking surveys have shown that there have not been significant impacts on the parking in Old Town.
