The City of South Pasadena hereby gives notice that the City of South Pasadena Planning Commission will consider an application for Design Review and a Hillside Development Permit and adoption of a Negative Declaration.  The applicant (Jason Sun , Architect) submitted plans a new 3 level 3,552 square foot house on a vacant lot at 801 Rollin Street, South Pasadena, CA 91030.

The project is briefly described as:

The proposed project consists of construction of a new 3,552 square foot single family home on a 15,092 square foot undeveloped up-sloping hillside lot located at 801 Rollin Street.  The proposed residence includes a three-car garage (plus guest spaces in the driveway) on the first level, living areas on the upper two levels, and a balcony that faces the street.   The proposed house is described as Craftsman with exterior materials such as Hardie siding, concrete tile roofing, stone veneer, wood garage door and clad wood windows and doors.  9 trees are also proposed to be removed as part of the project.  Additionally, the applicant is requesting a variance to connect to utilities outside the Altos de Monterey zone.   

City Staff conducted an Initial Study and determined that the project would not have a significant impact on the environment; therefore a Negative Declaration was prepared.  Public comments will be received by the City prior to the final adoption of the NEGATIVE DECLARATION and action on the project for a period of 20 days prior to the public hearing date.

A public hearing will be held before the Planning Commission to discuss the project, on March 26, 2018, at 6:30 p.m., at the Amedee O. “Dick” Richards, Jr., Council Chambers, 1424 Mission Street, South Pasadena, CA 91030.
