The project is located at 3417 Whirlaway Lane, on approximately 13,939- <br /> sq.ft. lot and is identified as a flag lot. <br /> Chairman Eliason and Commissioner Stover had concerns about the general design of <br /> the proposed two-story addition in regards to the prominence of the second-story in a <br /> primarily one-story single family community. Staff advised the Commission they are <br /> willing to work with the applicant to come up with a better design to blend in with the <br /> nature of a one-story single family residence to create a more harmonious addition with <br /> the existing neighborhood. Commissioner Romero had concerns about the length of the <br /> driveway to the residence and fire department access along with location of the nearest <br /> fire hydrant. Staff noted Commissioner Romero's concerns and will correspond with <br /> Chino Valley Independent Fire District and collect information regarding fire access on <br /> flag lots exceeding 150 feet and location of nearest fire hydrants and report back to the <br /> Commission. <br /> The adjacent owner, Hamid Niakani, located at 3425 Whirlaway Lane, had concerns <br /> about the proposed two-story addition interfering with his privacy, slope failure, and <br /> construction noise during certain hours. The Commission noted the proposed addition is <br /> on the opposite side of the property line dividing the two properties and there will be no <br /> impacts on privacy. The Commission also advised the concerned neighbor that there is <br /> no grading proposed or new retaining walls installed to accommodate the addition and <br /> slope failure is not a concern. Staff advised the Commission and concerned neighbor that <br /> construction hours are permitted from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. <br /> to 6 p.m. on Saturday and not allowed on Sundays or Holidays.
