The applicant proposes to construct a single story building of approximately 11,900 square feet. The building would support commercial/retail space located in a waterfront industrial zoning district. The project would also include a 24 space parking lot on the subject site along with landscaping and other amenities.
The applicant requests a second extension to a conditional use permit (USE1997-00072) which was previously approved by the Planning Commission. The first extension to the original permit (USE1999-00009) was approved by the Commission on June 22, 1999. That extension expires on December 22, 2000.
The CBJ Land Use Code provides that a major development permit may be extended by the Planning Commission for a period of 18 months. The code provides that one additional extension of a period of 18 months may also be granted. The applicant must apply for the extension at least 30 days prior to the expiration date of the permit. The Commission may not delete, amend, or add to the conditions contained in the permit. If the Commission determines that conditions should be changed the Commission may deny the extension request. The applicant then may submit the project for review as though it were a new permit. The Commission may not grant more than two extensions to a major development permit.
A copy of the previous staff reports and Notice of Decisions are attached.
