The subject <br />property is zoned C-G (PD) General Commercial (Precise Development). <br />The site was originally entitled in 1979 under Precise <br />Development 1-79 approving the development of the center and <br />Conditional Use Permit 1-79, approving the drive-thru food use <br />on the site. The site is currently developed with five buildings: a <br />27,530 square foot commercial building, a retail pad building, a <br />bank, a dry cleaner, and a fast food restaurant with drive-thru <br />service. <br />DISCUSSION <br />The project as proposed meets all the standards in the Code for <br />a commercial shopping center including setbacks, lot coverage, and building height. All land uses <br />proposed are approved by right or through the aforementioned entitlements granted in 1979. The <br />Tentative Parcel Map allows for greater flexibility with the land and addresses specific tenant needs
