Document Description
In July 2000, the City of Scotts Valley previously prepared and published a Draft EIR for a 40-lot residential subdivision and open space on the Polo Ranch site (113.5 acres), proposed by Lennar Communities/Greystone Homes (property owner/applicant/developer). Later in 2000, the applicant requested time to resolve vehicular access and other identified issues. In the current Draft EIR (Dec. 2005), the same applicant proposes to subdivide the 113.5-acre Polo Ranch site into 41 lots for single-family dwellings on 19 acres. The remaining 94.5 acres would be open space consisting of a small parking area, commemorative kiosk of the Polo Barn, two picnic tables, and hiking trails. The historic Polo Barn site would be a private residence and private horse stable, consistent with the original use of the Barn. Vehicular access would be provided from Santa's Village Road, through the Borland property (now owned by TripleNet). Emergency vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle access would be provided through Sucinto Drive, from the residential neighborhood located to the south of the subject property. A second emergency vehicle access and private access to neighboring parcels located north of the subject property would be provided by a 20-foot wide road.
