22-0519 114.1Mahonia Glen - Request for vacation of one storm drain easementCC- ReportREPORT - MAHONIA GLEN - REQUEST FOR SUMMARY VACATION OF ONE STORM DRAIN EASEMENT BACKGROUND: Mahonia Glen is an approved project that involves the redevelopment of the former Prickett’s Nursery site at 5173 Hwy 12. This affordable housing project was approved in June 2020 pursuant to Senate Bill 35, which mandates a streamlined, ministerial review process for projects which would typically require discretionary design review. The multi-structure housing complex will include 99 residential units, 98 of which will be deed-restricted as affordable housing and one of which will be reserved for an onsite manager. The campus will also have a community building, outdoor common areas, trash and storage areas and parking. MidPen Housing is the applicant and operator of the housing development. On April 20, 2022, Planning and Economic Development received an application seeking a summary vacation of the subject easement. Vacating the easement is necessary for the construction of the Mahonia Glen housing project because no structures are allowed within storm drain easements. RECOMM   Not available Not available
22-0493 114.2Utility Certificate - 1793 Fulton RdCC- ReportREPORT - UTILITY CERTIFICATE - 1793 FULTON RD - UC16-005 BACKGROUND: The project consists of a Utility Certificate request that would allow for a property that is outside of Santa Rosa City limits and Urban Growth Boundary to be connected to City sewer service. The property is currently served by an existing, damaged septic system, but as demonstrated by the evaluation performed by Apex Septic Design (Attachment 6) repairs are unlikely to be successful due to the septic system’s age and high groundwater level present at the property. Further, there is not sufficient space to install a new septic system when accounting for required setbacks to property lines. RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended by the Planning and Economic Development Department that the Council, by resolution, approve a Utility Certificate (UC16-005) to extend City sewer services to the property located at 1793 Fulton Road (APN 034-091-023), which is outside the City limits and outside the Urban Growth Boundary.   Not available Not available
