Document Type
SIR - Supplemental EIR
Present Land Use
The site is located within the Pala Mesa Private Development Plan prepared in 1973, and revised in 1974. The site is within the Current Urban Development Area and is designated (21) Specific Plan Area under the County of San Diego General Plan, the Fallbrook Community Plan, and the County Zoning Ordinance. Under the PDP, the area is designated for attached homes. However, currently the site is vacant land, which has been used historically for citrus groves.

Document Description
The project is a proposal for a Tentative Map, Rezone, Major Use Permit (for a Planned Residential Development), and minor amendment to the 1973 Pala Mesa Private Development Plan (PDP) for the subdivision of the 85.9-acre parcel into 130 residential lots. The PDP amendment and rezone would eliminate mult-family uses within the site and change the residential density from variable 1, 3, 4, and 7 dwelling units per acre to single-family residential at 1.8 dwelling units per acre across the site.
