CEQA Status:
Consideration and possible adoption of Categorical Exemptions pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15303 (Categorical Exemption Class 3 - New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures), which exempts the construction and location of new small facilities or structures; and CEQA Guidelines Section 15304 (Categorical Exemption Class 4 Minor Alterations to Land), which exempts minor alterations to land including minor trenching where the surface is restored. The project site is not located on any of the lists of hazardous material sites compiled pursuant to Government Code Section 65962.5.

Request: Approval of a Major Modification to the existing Silverado Resort & Spa Use Permit to authorize retention of a previously installed 1,600 square foot (40’X40’) modular suite for a remaining period of three years from 2018 to 2020 to serve as an unoccupied modular suite except for event days during those three years. During the seven event days of the Safeway Open PGA Tournament held in October of each year, this modular suite would be used for assembly purposes within the building's capacity as a hospitality venue, subject annually to the County of Napa’s Site Plan approval process. The request also includes an exception to the Napa County Conservation Regulations (County Code Chapter 18.108), in the form of a Use Permit, to allow this structure to encroach into the minimum required 55-foot stream setback from the top of bank of Milliken Creek – West Fork blue line stream (as defined in County Code Section 18.108.030). In November 2020, the modular suite would be removed and the area would be restored to its original condition, which consists of the planting of manicured grass as part of the 18th Hole. The proposed project is located on a 278.73-acre parcel, specifically between the 18th Hole of the North Golf Course and the cart path directly across from the cart staging area of the Clubhouse, within the Planned Development (PD) zoning district; 1600 Atlas Peak Drive, Napa, CA; APN: 060-010-001.

Staff Recommendation: Find the project Categorically Exempt and approve the requested Use Permit Modification and Conservation Regulation Exception as conditioned.
