The approved tentative map would subdivide 6.64 acres of land, which is currently developed with one single-family residence, to create 11 single-family residential properties, 2 open space lots, and 1 private street lot. A representative of the applicant addressed the Planning Commission and discussed the circumstances that have prevented the project from moving forward since the approval of the tentative map and the measures currently underway to allow the project to proceed in a timely fashion moving forward. Two residents of the surrounding community spoke during the public hearing. Brad Goldman expressed concerns regarding traffic safety and the line of sight for drivers on Pinnacle Road, the size of the lots relative to the surrounding developments, and environmental and fire considerations. Theresa Santos also expressed concern regarding traffic safety at the project's entrance on Pinnacle Road. The Planning Commission discussed the concerns raised by the residents with staff and noted that these concerns were evaluated during the entitlement of the project and would be considered during the construction plan review process. The Commissioners discussed granting a reduced time extension to provide for a future review in the event that the project is unable to achieve forward progress within a reasonable time frame. August 7, 2019 Page 2 CM2019-044 By a 4-0 vote (with Commissioner Hamamoto absent), the Planning Commission adopted a resolution approving Extension of Time 19EXT02 to grant a two-year extension to Tentative Tract Map 16959.
