Document Description
The Four Creeks Project is a City initiated general plan amendment and rezoning project, which would designate 18 acres of industrial land for high-density residential uses. Two development plans have been submitted covering different portions of the property. The Tumbling Waters Development Plan covers 11.63 acres on 861 and 953 Orcutt Road. The Creekston Development Plan covers 5.6 acres on 791 Orcutt, 3330 Broad and 3360 Broad. Additional land covered by the rezoning includes four parcels on Broad Street that are under separate ownership. The Tumbling Waters and Creekston development plans are used as the basis for evaluating the overall environmental impacts of the project. The draft EIR assumes that residential development will occur on the remaining land along Broad Street at some point in the future. Tumbling Waters: This portion of the development would include 175 for-sale residential units on 11.63 acres, split by the Sacramento Drive right-of-way. The net site area (which excludes creeks and right-of-way) is 7.5 acres. Three different residential product types are proposed including duplex, triplex and detached units. Project amenities would include bikeways throughout the site, creek enhancement, a community garden, a meditation/garden walk area, a tot lot/family area and a seasonal sand volleyball court. Creekston: This portion of the project area would include a total of 86 residential units and approximately 10,000 sf of commercial floor area. A 2,700 sf day care facility is also proposed. The project site has a gross area of 5.3 acres, and a net site area of 3.6 acres. Four unit types are proposed, including mixed-use apartments and "hoffices" (home/depot), courtyard homes, zero lot-line homes, and flats. Amenities of the Creekston proposal include careful attention to the space between buildings to provide opportunities for interaction among residents, and the combination of residential and commercial uses on the site. A transit facility with a public art component is proposed along Orcutt Road. Creek enhancements are also proposed.
