The 3340 Los Coyotes Diagonal site is zoned "Institutional" which allows for this type of use (senior assisted/memory care facility) subject to a "Conditional Use Permit" (CUP) by the City Hall's non-elected (Mayor chosen/Council approved) Planning Commission through a public hearing process which may place conditions on a project. (Other types of allowed institutional uses include private schools and medical office complexes or hospitals.)

City Planning Bureau Manager Patricia Diefenderfer says the City "offers a pre-application process to assist developers in determining if their proposed project meets the City’s Code requirements and to provide guidance on the approval process that will be required. Pre-applications are reviewed by the Development Services Department Planning Bureau and offer high-level review and feedback on a development proposal, which usually includes the evaluation of a site plan and project description for a proposed development and use."
[Diefenderfer text] In response to a pre-application, applicants are provided a letter that specifies whether or not the project is in compliance with all the applicable zoning regulations and also includes information about the next steps and formal application process that will be required of the applicant to pursue the described project at the proposed location. The feedback provided by the City through the pre-application process allows the applicant to know what the City will require to ensure compliance with the applicable regulations and typically informs an applicant’s decision to continue to pursue the project.
