At this time, public comments were taken. Mr. Fred Perkins, Temecula, expressed concern with the public parking on Mercedes Street, advising that the street would be too narrow to park on. In response to Mr. Perkins' concern, Deputy City Manager Thornhill noted that the improvements on Mercedes Street would be at ultimate right-of-way; that there would be a 60-foot right-of-way and the curb would be at 40 feet curb to curb which would be the same as Front Street which allows for parking on the streets; that the street will not be widened; and that any building would have to be done within the existing right-of-way; that the future western bypass will take a large amount of cut-through traffic out of Old Town; and that an amphitheater for the plaza area should be considered.

Associate Planner Damko provided the Board with a staff report (of written material). Board Member Blair queried on the height of the proposed project and flatness of the roof top. In response to Board Member Blair's concern, Associate Planner Damko noted that the height of the proposed project would meet the Development Code and the Old Town Specific Plan; and that with regard to the flatness of the roof, that the proposed three-story building would provide acceptable articulation in roof forms and offsets to reduce massing and the sides and rear would be visually broken-up with offsets, balconies, changes in materials, and architectural detailing; and that the proposed elevations would achieve a historic look and overarching design to create a prominent building in Old Town with a strong character as well as function. Chairman Allen requested that the site plans be enlarged for easy reading. Clarifying for the Chairman, Associate Planner Damko noted that the project will provide thirteen parking spaces dedicated for future residential tenants located on the first floor of the building; that this would meet the parking requirement of the Specific Plan since there is no current parking requirement in Old Town.
