PUBLIC HEARING TO CONSIDER; TENTATIVE PARCEL MAP 04-45; RESOLUTION NO. 05-009; 8 SUTTER ST.; 35-060-53; IQBAL SANDHU

Scot Timboe, Planner, reviewed the staff report and gave a brief background on the parcel for the Planning Commission. He reported that staff had just received a legal memo from Carr, Kennedy, Peterson & Frost representing Redding Oil Company who is the owner of a parcel of real property located at 1 Sutter Street, which stated that the subject property is subject to and encumbered by certain Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R’s) which were recorded in 1968. It is staff’s policy to have the City Attorney review and comment prior to recommending approval and by law staff cannot approve a parcel that is not buildable. Staff is recommending that the Planning Commission continue until the April 12th Planning Commission meeting.

Chairperson Dale opened the public hearing at 5:25 p.m.

Rick Reiser, Representative from Redding Oil stated that they were available to answer any questions the Planning Commission might have.

Doug Kuss of Robertson & Dominick stated that they did not know about the CC & R’s until the letter from Redding Oil Company’s legal counsel was received and that they had researched and found that the CC & R’s do exist. He stated that he would contact the Planning Department on Wednesday to report whether or not the parcel map would be pulled.

M/S/C Irving, Brink to continue the Public Hearing to the April 12th, 2005 Planning Commission meeting to allow time for the City Attorney to review and comment.
