The project proposes 189 clustered single-family residential lots and two open space lots. The project boundary is 293.3 acres which includes 262.14 acres within the Specific Plan, plus an additional 26.47 acres outside of the Specific Plan that would serve as a mitigation area for habitat impacts. Also included in the overall project boundary is a 4.7-acre area dedicated as an offsite habitat linkage easement. Total open space within the project area covers 243.23 acres. The conserved open space covers 210.80 acres and the remaining non-biological open space (fuel modification, manufactured exterior slopes, water quality lots and parks) totals 32.43 acres.
