Document Description
The Thorp Annexation and Sphere of Influence Amendment project involves the annexation of approximately 100 acres into the City of Greenfield. The project is located immediately east of the incorporated City limits. The westernmost 20 acres of the project site are within the City's designated Sphere of Influence (SOI) and Urban Service Area. A Sphere of Influence amendment will be required concurrent with the annexation application to include the remaining 80 acres outside the SOI. The project applicant for the requested action is Coats Consulting on behalf of Robert Thorp, who represents the group of property owners within the annexation area. A General Plan Amendment will be required to change the designation of the easternmost 80 acres of the site from Residential Reserve to Low Density Residential. The requested entitlements include a zoning designation of Single-Family Residential with a Planned Unit Development overlay (R-1/PUD). The 20-acres currently within the City's Sphere of Influence are pre-zoned "Light Industrial" (M) and will retain this designation. The Planned Unit Development overlay will allow the development of a mix of medium-and low-density housing and construction of a new elementary school on 10 acres of the site. The new elementary school was previously planned for this location by the Greenfield Unified School District. A total of 12 parcels are included in the proposed annexation. The entire area is planned for up to 476 dwellings. No subdivision maps or detailed site plans are proposed as part of the annexation request and Sphere of Influence Amendment.
