FROM: Daniel Gordon, Planning Manager

TITLE
Consider Adoption of Resolution 20-01, a Resolution of the Planning Officer of the Town of Yountville Approving a Modification or Change in Use Allowing up to Sixteen (16) Additional Seats Total at RH Gallery Located at 6725 Washington Street (APN: 036-032-008), Pursuant to Section 17.156.050 and Other Provisions of the Yountville Municipal Code.

This new parking would be located along Washing Street, adjacent to Yountville Community Park between the intersections of Lincoln Avenue and Jackson Street, called here the "Right-of-Way Lot" (or "ROW Lot").
