Present Land Use
Present Zoning is: A-70 with a density: 1 du-2 acre(s). The project site was operated as an avocado orchard up until 1990 when it became economically infeasible to continue that operation. In the past two to three years orchards have been reestablished and actively maintained. The project site is designated remainder parcel of TPM 20243 that was approved February 25, 1997. No grading had been contemplated on the project site during the review of TPM 20243.
Document Description
The project is a major subdivision on the 75.5 acre MDS Development project site. The project proposes to develop 30 residential lots, ranging in size from 2.0 acres to 4.1 acres each. Each created legal parcel will contain a residence, septic leach field, fire clearing (limited building zone), landscaping and driveway. The project will construct two private roads: Tiffany Real and Lapis Lane, with additional offsite road improvements of Tiffany Real connecting to Black Canyon Road. The project will construct two water tanks and a 20 foot water line easement immediately offsite at the extreme northwestern corner of the project site. The project will have 86,150 cu yds of cut with 2:1 cut slopes, and 86,150 cu yds of fill with 2:1 fill slopes. The project will have imported water supplied by Ramona Municipal Water District, and fire service by the Ramona Fire Department/CDF. The project proposes to vacate an existing open space easement in the northeastern portion of the project site, and place two of the major drainages that bisect the project site from north to south in open space easements with setbacks. The open space easements will preserve biological resources and water resources.
