A 45-unit single-family detached residential development at 375 Knowles Drive will be considered tonight by the Los Gatos Planning Commission during its meeting at 7 p.m. at Town Council Chambers, 110 E. Main St.

Specifically, planners will consider the project's draft environmental impact report. The development will be built on 3.34 acres, which now contain the vacant Santa Clara County Health Department office building at the corner of Knowles and Capri drives.

The land was formerly owned by the county and the site is located west of Winchester Boulevard and north of Highway 85 at the northern end of town, near the Campbell border.

The public will be allowed to give its feedback on the environmental document and any concerns it may have about the project and impacts to the surrounding neighborhoods. The public can view the document by clicking here.

Tonight's hearing is required by the California Environmental Quality Act, being held during the 45-day public review period for the document.

The town says a notice about the document's availability for public review was posted Dec. 3, 2013 and the review period ends Jan. 17.

Also on tonight's agenda are subdivision and architecture and site applications for a 20,300-square-foot parcel that will be split into two lots at 16560 Shannon Rd., whose applicant is JG Building, LLC.

Planners will also have decide whether to recommend the demolition of a pre-1941 single-family residence to construct two new single-family residences on the land.

That sounds like a lot of houses for an area that is already quite built up. It will be interesting to see the decision.
