CALL TO ORDER/INTRODUCTIONS
Application: Hotel Healdsburg Residences DR 2019-02 (Design Review)
Description: The project is proposed on three existing parcels located at the northeast corner of Healdsburg Avenue and North Street. The three parcels are currently developed with a private parking lot and two, one and two-story commercial buildings located north of the parking lot. All the existing on-site improvements are proposed to be removed to allow for the new 4-story, 16-room commercial hotel.
The building will generally occupy the entire 0.32-acre site. The hotel will include 16 guest rooms which are designed as suites with a large apartment-like layout with separate living area, bedrooms, kitchen or wet bar, and dining area. Each suite has 2 to 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and private patio and/or balcony. The suites generally range in size from 932 square feet to 1,400 square feet. Five of the suites are designed as 3-story townhouses and the remaining 11 suites are designed as single-story flats.
Accessory uses include a lobby, semi enclosed plaza, swimming pool terrace, restaurant facing North Street, and retail shops facing Healdsburg Avenue.
Parking for 34 cars is provided on-site within a parking garage utilizing a parking lift system with valet service.
The purpose of the workshop is to introduce the project to the Planning Commission and community and to obtain input. No official action will be taken at this meeting.
Determination: The workshop discussion is not a “project” pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines because the item for discussion does not involve an action and therefore no environmental determination is required. A project specific environmental analysis will be conducted once plans are resubmitted with any revisions based upon comments received at the Planning Commission workshop.
