Public Hearing Item(s):

1. (7:20 PM) File No.170000371. Consideration of a Resolution recommending that the City Council adopt an Ordinance approving a Development Agreement between the City of Calabasas and Rondell Oasis, LLC providing for the acquisition of vacant land and construction of a public parking lot and approving substitute use of that parking lot for required off-street parking and concentration of related development rights for an approved hotel. The subject site is located at 26300 Rondell Street (APN 2069-031-014 and 2069-031-015), within the Commercial Retail zoning district and Scenic Corridor overlay zone. An Initial Study/ Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) was prepared for the hotel, inclusive of all improvements along Rondell Street. In preparing and reviewing the IS/MND, staff exercised independent judgment over the project and the project's environmental impacts. The Final IS/MND was adopted by City Council via Resolution No. 2016-1496. The Proposed Project and public park & ride lot and associated improvements along Rondell Street are in substantial conformance with the project analyzed in the adopted IS/MND, therefore no additional environmental review is necessary.
