Document Description
The project involves changing the Land Use designation and rezoning approximately 6,800 acres to Research and Business Park. The acreage involved consists of six discrete sites in various locations in the unincorporated area of the County as follows: Site 1: (1,080 acres) Development potential under the existing General Plan could be up to one dwelling unit per acre, for a total of approximately 1,080 dwellings. However, approximately 491 acres of the 1,080 acres may be developable. Site 2: (1,233 acres) Development potential under the existing General Plan would be either 30 single family dwellings on parcels of 40+ acres or 60 single family dwellings if a clustered Planned Unit Development option is used and 80% of the site remains in open space. Site 3: (1,716 acres) Development potential under the existing General Plan would be either 43 single family dwellings on parcels of 40+ acres or 86 single family dwellings if a clustered Planned Unit Development option is used and 80% of the site remains in open space. Site 4: (915 acres) Development potential under the existing General Plan could be up to one dwelling unit per acre for the 430 acres designated Agricultural Residential. This would require a Rezone. Site 5: (270 acres) Development potential under the existing General Plan would be either 6 single family dwellings on parcels of 40+ acres or 13 single family dwellings if a clustered Planned Unit Development option is used and 80% of the site remains in open space. Site 6: (1,689 acres) Development potential under the existing General Plan would be either 42 single family dwellings on parcels of 40+ acres or 84 single family dwellings if a clustered Planned Unit Development option is used and 80% of the site remains in open space.
