>> Lest any body think that either the staff or the majority of the Planning Commission are sympathetic to our concerns read this:
>> "COMMISSION ACTION: The Planning Commission reviewed a presentation from the applicant, asked questions of the applicant and staff, considered public comment, and made comments to inform future review of the project. Key direction included:
>> Commissioners indicated the alternate plan, shown on the last seven sheets of the submitted plan set, should be the starting point for the applicant to work with the neighbors.
>>
>> The applicant agreed to make multiple bids for the construction of an underground garage available to the Planning Commission and interested neighbors.
>>
>> Commissioners indicated the applicant has made several compromises and the neighboring property owners should also make compromises so an agreement can be reached.
>>
>> Commissioners commented that the residences on Buckthorn Way appeared to be most impacted by the current and alternate designs.
>>
>> Commissioners indicated most of the design comments from the March study session have been incorporated, improving the overall design.
>>
>> Commissioners also indicated the western property line facing El Camino Real should be considered for the purpose of calculating sign area. "
>>
>>
>>
>> The very idea that Patel can walk away from his agreement with the neighbors on an earlier design and then put a totally different design forward without any neighborhood support and that the Planning Commission would then dare to say that we now have to compromise with this new much more intrusive design is a travesty.
