County Counsel requests consideration and adoption of a Resolution of Findings of Fact and Decision on Appeal filed by Grape Lane Association, c/o REB Engineering, to a decision by the Napa County Planning Commission on December 4, 2019 to approve Use Permit No. P17-00387-UP for the Mathew Bruno Wines Tasting Room to allow a wine bar with wine storage, tasting, retail sales and marketing events on a re-purposed single-family residential property. In addition to renovation of the historic residential structure, on-site construction for the Project would include planting of new landscaping; installation of seven paved, on-site parking stalls; installation of a new, on-site wastewater treatment system; and construction of a wraparound porch, also to be used for wine tasting. Off-site modifications would include widening of the asphalt-paved surface of the northern portion of Grape Lane immediately adjacent to the Project site, and installation of a mid-block pedestrian crossing on Rutherford Road. The proposal also includes a public road exception to the requirement under the Napa County Road and Street Standards to install a left turn lane in the right-of-way of Rutherford Road at its intersection with Grape Lane. The proposed Project site is a 0.38-acre parcel located at 1151 Rutherford Road/ State Route 128, Napa (Assessor’s Parcel No. 030-160-007).

ENVIRONMENTAL DETERMINATION: Consideration and possible adoption of a Negative Declaration (ND). According to the proposed ND, the project would not have a significant impact on the environment.
