Use Permit/1330 O'Brien Dr/Menlo Park Portfolio
c/o Tarlton Properties
Recommendation
Staff recommends that the Planning Commission approve a use permit for hazardous materials to install a
new diesel generator in the M-2 (General Industrial) zoning district, at 1330 O’Brien Drive. As part of the
project, the applicant is requesting a parking reduction based on the uses within the building and the
existing tenants' operations. 141 parking spaces would be provided, after the removal of two existing
spaces to accommodate the proposed generator, where 154 parking spaces are required by the M-2
square-footage-based parking requirements. The recommended actions are contained within Attachment
A.
Policy Issues
Each use permit request is considered individually. The Planning Commission should consider whether
the required use permit findings can be made for the proposal.
Background
Site location
The project site is an existing office and research and development (R&D) building located at 1330
O’Brien Drive. The eastern portion of the building (Building 5 of the Menlo Business Park), is occupied by
Personalis, an advanced genomic services company. The western portion of the building (Building 6 of the
Menlo Business Park), is occupied by CardioKinetix, which develops, manufactures, and markets
cardiovascular implants and catheters. A parcel owned by the San Francisco Public Utility Commission
(SFPUC) containing Hetch Hetchy Regional Water System infrastructure runs adjacent to the north
building exterior along the entire width of the parcel. Based on past approvals for development of the
subject property, a portion of the SFPUC parcel is considered part of the development site in terms of floor
area ratio (FAR), setbacks, parking, and other purposes. A location map is included as Attachment B.
Adjacent parcels to the north, east, and west are also located in the M-2 zoning district, and primarily
contain warehouse, light manufacturing, R&D, and office uses. A number of other facilities in the Menlo
Business Park have previously received hazardous materials use permits, including 1315 O’Brien Drive,
directly to the north; and 1430 O’Brien Drive, Suites A, D, E, F, G and H, directly to the east. Single-family
residences in the City of East Palo Alto are located directly south of the business park. These parcels front
onto Kavanaugh Road, and a number of residential dwelling units are within less than 100 feet of the
subject building, with the closest residential property line approximately 59 feet to the south of the
City of Menlo Park

Staff Report #: 16-072-PC
proposed generator. The subject building is located approximately 1,750 feet from Costano Elementary
School and approximately 600 feet from Cesar Chavez Elementary School, both of which are located
within the City of East Palo Alto.
Analysis
Project description
The applicant is requesting approval to use hazardous materials in association with an outdoor emergency
generator. The generator would run on diesel fuel and would include a 430-gallon tank located within a
generator enclosure. In the event of a power outage, the generator would allow key equipment to maintain
power. Outside of emergency uses, the generator would typically be tested every two weeks for
approximately 20 minutes to ensure ongoing and dependable performance. The applicant has provided a
project description letter that describes the proposal in more detail (Attachment C).
The applicant is proposing to place the generator along the south side of the building, which would result
in the loss of two parking spaces. The generator would be screened from public view by an eight-foot tall
concrete masonry unit (CMU) wall that would be painted to match the building. The proposed generator
would also be housed within a sound-attenuated enclosure to further reduce any noise impacts from its
operation. The project plans, included as Attachment D, show the location of the generator on the site.
Since the unit is ground-mounted, the Noise Ordinance limits the maximum noise level during testing to 50
dB(A) at the nearest residential property line during the evening hours and 60 dB(A) during the daytime
hours. A noise study conducted by Vibro-Acoustic Consultants indicated the proposed eight-foot tall CMU
wall and the proposed level II enclosure with a critical silencer would limit the generator noise level at the
nearest residential property line to 60 dB(A). Since the testing would occur only during the day, the limits
in the Noise Ordinance would not be exceeded, and sound impacts to residential properties in the area
would be limited.
Hazardous materials
The western portion of the building on the subject parcel is occupied by CardioKinetix, which develops,
manufactures, and markets cardiovascular implants and catheters used to treat patients experiencing
heart failure symptoms. On September 21, 2015, the Planning Commission approved a use permit for the
storage and use of hazardous materials related to the development and manufacture of cardiovascular
implants and catheters for CardioKinetix. The use permit limits the use and storage of all hazardous
materials to within the existing building. No changes are proposed to these interior hazardous materials
operations. The eastern portion of the building is occupied by Personalis, an advanced genomic services
company that does not currently require a hazardous materials use permit for its operations.
An emergency generator has not previously been used at the site. Diesel fuel for the generator would be
the only hazardous material approved for onsite storage as part of the current use permit request. The
proposed generator tank can hold up to 430 gallons of fuel and would be located within a level II aluminum
enclosure. The Hazardous Materials Information Form (HMIF) for the project is provided as Attachment E
and the generator specification sheet is included as Attachment F.

701 Laurel St., Menlo Park, CA 94025 tel 650-330-6600 www.menlopark.org
Staff Report #: 16-072-PC
Staff has included recommended conditions of approval that would limit changes in the use of hazardous
materials, require a new business to submit a chemical inventory to seek compliance if the existing use is
discontinued, and address violations of other agencies in order to protect the health and safety of the
public.
Staff believes that the proposed emergency diesel generator would comply with all industry standard
precautions to protect personnel and the environment, and the proposed use and quantities of hazard
materials would be consistent with other emergency generators.
Agency review
The Menlo Park Fire Protection District (MPFPD), City of Menlo Park Building Division, West Bay Sanitary
District, and San Mateo County Environmental Health Services Division were contacted regarding the
proposed use and storage of hazardous materials on the project site. Each entity found the proposal to be
in compliance with all applicable standards and approved the proposal. Their correspondence has been
included as Attachment G.
Parking
141 parking spaces would be provided, after the removal of two existing spaces to accommodate the
proposed generator, where the M-2 square-footage-based parking requirements require 154 parking
spaces for the 45,990-square foot building. The Planning Division can review and approve parking
reductions through an administrative process, or if a project otherwise requires Planning Commission
action, this request is incorporated for the Planning Commission’s comprehensive consideration. The
parking reduction can be based on unique factors specific to a project site and/or tenant. The density for
an R&D use is generally lower than offices since employees often have multiple work spaces and lab
spaces are not typically occupied all day. The applicant states that the two tenant spaces currently have a
total of 64 occupants and that the tenants anticipate a maximum of 75 occupants in 2017. The applicant
also states that four of the current building occupants bike to work three or more days per week and two
building occupants ride the train/Tarlton Properties shuttle to work three or more days per week. Staff
recommends approval of the of the parking reduction request.
Correspondence
Staff has not received any correspondence from neighboring property owners or the general public
regarding this project.
Conclusion
Staff believes that the proposed emergency diesel generator would comply with all industry standard
precautions to protect personnel and the environment, and the proposed use and quantities of hazard
materials would be consistent with other emergency generators. The proposed generator would be located
within a sound attenuating enclosure and a CMU wall. The density for an R&D use is generally lower than
offices, and the applicant states that the current tenants anticipate a maximum of 75 employees in 2017,
well below the number of parking spaces that would be provided. Staff has not received any letters of
opposition to the project, and it has been reviewed by the relevant agencies to ensure compliance with all
applicable standards. Staff recommends that the Planning Commission approve the proposed use permit

Dear Madam/Sir
Tarlton properties Inc. (Tarlton) the property manager for 1330 O'Brien Drive is installing a diesel
generator to provide emergency power for the Personalis and Cardiokinetix tenants of this building.
The unit with allow key equipment to maintain power in the event of an outage. The generator will be a
250 kw unit with a level II critical silencer.
Tarlton will obtain the necessary operating permits (e.g. Air emissions from BAAQMD, hazardous
materials from MP fire protection district) for the unit and maintain it. The air emissions permit
application is in process. Once the unit is installed and diesel is present and HMBP will be submitted to
San Mateo County and the MPFPD.
In the absence of a power outage we anticipate annual refueling. Fuel levels will be checked quarterly
to ensure adequate supplies are present. The generator will be tested every two weeks for 20 minutes.

Request for
Parking
Reduction

August 10, 2016
Dear Madam/Sir
We would like to request consideration of the building use at 1330 O’Brien Drive in relation to the
quantity of onsite parking provided. This 45,990sf building has 143 parking spaces. It is currently
occupied by two tenants: Personalis and CardioKinetix with a total of 64 occupants (39 and 25
respectively).
The addition of a generator enclosure, proposed in this conditional use permit will decrease the
existing site parking to 141 spaces. Based on the M2 zoning requirement of 1/300 parking
spaces this building would require 154 parking spaces.
The current tenants anticipate a maximum headcount of 75 employees in 2017 (45 and 30
respectively). Currently a total of 4 building occupants bike to work 3 or more days per week and
2 building occupants ride the train/ Tarlton Properties shuttle to work 3 or more days per week.
In consideration of the quantity of parking spaces used by the employees (maximum 72) we
would like to request the existing 141 spaces onsite be considered sufficient parking for this
building.
