SEPTEMBER RANCH; September Ranch Subdivision Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
GP: Low Density Residential 5-1 units/acre Zoning: LDR/2.5-D-5 (Low Density Residential/2.5 acres - Design Control - Site Plan Review) RDR/10-D-5 (Rural Density Residential / 10 acres - Design Control - Site Plan Review)
Document Description
The proposed project involves the subdivision of 891 acres into 94 market rate residential lots, 15 units of inclusionary housing, and a 20.2 acre lot for the existing equestrian facility; 782.8 acres is proposed as open space. Other appurtenant facilities and uses would include separate systems for the distribution of potable water, water tanks for fire suppression, a sewage collection and treatment system, waste water treatment system, drainage system, internal road system, common open space, tract sales office and security gate. The Carmel Valley Master Plan (CVMP) guides land use on the project site. The northerly portion of the property which contains 494 acres is designated by the CVMP as Rural Density Residential5+ ares /unit and is zoned RDR/10-D-S (Rural Density Residential, 10 acres/unit Design Control-Site Control); the southern portion is designated Low Density Residential 5-1 acres/unit and is zoned LDR/2.5-D-S (Low Density Residential/2.5 Design Control-Site Control). The project would require a General Plan Amendment to change the land use designation from "Low Density Residential 5-1 acres/unit" to Medium Density Residential1-5 units/acre and a zoning Reclassification from LDR 2.5-D-S to MDR-5-D-S to allow clustering of the inclusionary housing units. Site improvements would require approximately 100,000 cubic yards of grading, and a tree removal permit. The project would also require a waiver of County regulations prohibiting development on slopes in excess of 30% to allow for the construction of internal access roads.
