RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation

SUMMARY

The applicant is requesting approval for a Site Plan Review (SPR) with Grading Permit application to allow the construction of a three-story, 3,442 square-foot single-family residence with a roof deck and a 3-car garage on a 0.12-acre (5,125 square-feet) vacant hillside parcel located at 2382 Rainbow Court (Assessor Parcel No. 425-0410-029-00).

Generally, Site Plan Review applications for single-family residences within the hillside areas are subject to administrative staff level review. However, the average slope of the area that will be graded is 21.3 % and the Grading/Clearing Ordinance requires City Council approve the Grading Plan for developments where the area disturbed is over 20% per Section 10-8.023 of the Hayward Municipal Code (HMC). Since the HMC does not allow staff to refer a SPR application directly to City Council without Planning Commission review, staff determined that the applications require Planning Commission review and City Council consideration.

Staff believes the single-family residence is an attractive addition to the surrounding neighborhood and is consistent with the RS District development standards, Hillside Design Guidelines and General Plan.
