NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
The project site is currently designated as Urban Development Area and Agricultural-Residential on the General Plan, and is zoned promarily AR-5 with minor amounts of AR-5(F), AR-2 and AR-1 zoning. The site is sparsley populated (65 existing households) and currently supports hay crop, dry pasture & irrigated truck farming uses.
A NOP of a Draft Environmental Impact Report for the Elverta Specific Plan project was issued on September 6, 2000. That project has subsequently been revised to also include request for rezone and tentative subdivision map entitlements for the 275.4+/- acres of land known as Countryside Equestrian Estates (CEE) located within the northeast portion of the Elverta Specific Plan area. Changes to the Elverta Specific Plan project description as contained in the oringinal NOP are necessary to reflect inclusion of the CEE rezone and tentative map requests within the Elverta Specific Plan project proposal.
The project consists of adoption of the Elverta Specific Plan and related land use entitlements which will guide the development of 1,734 acres of land located in north central Sacramento County in a comprehensive and coordinated manner. The proposed Specific Plan is primarily residential in character: it includes 894 acres of urban residential uses and 552 acres of agricultural-residential uses with a total holding capacity of up to 4,950 units; 10 acres of commercial uses; 20 acres of school uses; 20 acres of park uses; 19 acres (former landfill site) for potential use as an equestrian center; and 219 acres to be used for drainageways, detention facilities, trails, powerline corridor and major roads.
