Present Land Use
Undeveloped/A-1 (Limited Agriculture)/6.3 (Highway Commercial)
Document Description
(A) A zone change A-1 to C2 PD on 12.98 acres from the boundaries of Agricultural Preserve No. 10. The project site is an undeveloped, but previously disturbed parcel, not subject to a Williamson Act Land Use Contract. The applicant's intent is to commercially develop the acreage in a phased manner, however, the number of phases and extent of development is unknown. The purpose of the C-2 District is to designate areas for the widest range of retail commercial activities, including regional shopping centers and heavy commercial uses. The purpose of the PD District is to identify areas with unique site characteristics or environmental conditions or areas surrounded by land uses to ensure development in such areas is compatible with such constraints. Development in the PD Combining District is discretionary and, therefore, subject to further environmental review. No use can be established or developed in the PD Combining District until an application for development has been approved and an environmental document, if required, is completed. As proposed, Phase 1 would entail a convenience market/gas station with incidental fuel islands in addition to possibly, truck and RV parking. Water supply and sewage disposal would be by individual water well and septic tank system, respectively. Access would be by either a future local street or Bear Mountain Boulevard.
