Amendment to the Rancho Murieta Planned Development (PD) Ordinance (77-PD-10) to reconfigure the circulation pattern and reconfigure the open space areas as shown on approved master plan. (Note: The overall density is not increased from that shown on the Rancho Murieta Master Plan). 3. Vesting Subdivision Map to create four lots in the RD-1 zone and 234 lots in the RD-3 zone for a total of 238 residential lots, in addition to four space lots, five landscaped lots, one separate lot for the existing television tower, and one private road lot. 4. Exception from Title 22 (the County Land Development Ordinance) to allow only one point of access (second access for emergency access). The Retreat project includes the following entitlement requests: 1. Rezone for 30.3 acres from A-2(PD) to RD-4(PD), consisting of three separate sites (17.0 acres, 6.7 acres, and 6.6 acres respectively). 2. Vesting Subdivision Map to create three residential "villages" with a total of 95 residential lots and four common area lots in the vicinity of the golf course driving range and club house. 3. Special Development Permit to allow patios to extend beyond the property line into the common area approximately 10 feet. Note: The request reduces the density shown on the master plan from 25 units per acre for the Retreat West and Retreat North less than 4 units per acre, and from 10 units per acre less than 4 units per acre for the Retreat East. Circulation patterns and open space patterns do not change. 4. Exception from Title 22 (the County Land Development Ordinance) to allow one point of access for more than 40 lots (Retreat North).
