On Tuesday, Jan. 15, the Cupertino City Council is scheduled to study a hotel proposal to determine if it qualifies for a new review by City staff.
The proposal is a “General Plan Amendment Authorization” application. According to the City website, the application includes “modifications to a previously approved General Plan Amendment Authorization.” The proposal includes the demolition of the existing 8,323-square-foot Goodyear Tires commercial building. A five-story, 156-room hotel would be built in its place. The application seeks to increase height, revise building plane, and reduce setback, according to the City.
The City Council’s review is part of the City’s General Plan Amendment Authorization process, which was adopted by the council in September 2015. Such reviews are conducted by the council twice a year and sees council members decide if project developers can submit a formal General Plan amendment application to be reviewed by City staff.
“Authorization does not guarantee approval of the projects. Authorization directs staff to review the submitted application, which includes public outreach as well as project and environmental review,” according to the City website.
The Jan. 15 meeting will begin at 6:45 p.m., and will be held in Cupertino Community Hall, 10350 Torre Ave.
