The proposed project consists of the construction of a 3,150 square foot fast food restaurant with a drive-thru on the currently vacant property located at 727 El Camino Real (the western corner of the El Camino Real, Faeh Avenue, Bell Street intersection). The new structure is proposed to be one story (21 feet) in height and includes 37 parking spaces.
No. The project application has only recently been deemed complete for processing. City staff is still reviewing the proposal, evaluating the project’s impacts on the environment under the California Environmental Quality Act, and preparing reports for the various Committees and Commissions that will be reviewing the project and making recommendations to the City Council. The City Council will make a final determination on the application at a future public hearing.
State Law and the Arroyo Grande Municipal Code have provisions for public hearing notifications regarding projects such as this. Given anticipated neighborhood interest regarding the proposal, City staff provided notification to property owners within 300 feet of the project site earlier than required by either State Law or the Municipal Code to begin informing the public about the proposal. Additional notices will be mailed to property owners in the neighborhood as the project proceeds to the Planning Commission, tentatively scheduled in October, and City Council, tentatively scheduled in November. Additionally, notices will be sent when the environmental documentation required under the California Environmental Quality Act is prepared and available for public review and comment.
The plans can be reviewed at City Hall, 300 East Branch Street, during regular business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.. Planning Manager Matthew Downing is the City staff member processing the project and is happy to show the plans to the public. If Matt is unavailable, another member of the Community Development Department can show you the plans when you visit. You can send comments to Matt at City Hall or via email at email@example.com.
You can email the project manager Matt Downing at firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be notified of meetings and activities associated with the project. Additionally, the City encourages you to sign up for notifications on its website at www.arroyogrande.org.
