“The Villa Capri Hotel Replacement project consists of demolishing the existing 15-room Villa Capri motel and constructing a new 40-room, four-story hotel with a rooftop bar/restaurant. Vehicle parking would be provided in an underground parking garage accessed by a car elevator. A total of 21 valet spaces would be provided within the underground parking garage and one ADA compliant parking space would be provided at grade. The existing historic “Villa Capri” sign would be relocated to the top floor of the hotel and the historic “Diving Lady” sign would be relocated to the south end of the new hotel. Development of the project would involve clearing and grubbing of the site, demolition of the existing Villa Capri Motel, grading for the new hotel and associated garage, and construction of the new hotel, all of which is anticipated to take approximately 14 months. Typical construction equipment would be used, including but not limited to an excavator, drill rig, crane, and heavy trucks.”
