Summary Staff Report: 

This text amendment was initiated by the Board of Supervisors on October 12, 2006. The purpose is to accommodate one existing business in the County and to provide for others that may seek to locate here.  On November 30, 2006, by a vote of 4 to 0, the Planning Commission recommended adoption. 

In the resolution initiating the text amendment, the Board of Supervisors left often to the Planning Commissionís discretion how to authorize the desired activity.  Staff prepared a text amendment recommending that: storage be limited to new passenger cars, pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles; on-site maintenance and mechanical work not be permitted; and the lot shall be completely screened from view of adjacent properties. The Planning Commission adopted these recommendations.
