Three acres of Planning Area 9 is currently developed as the Chardonnay Hills Recreation Center and is not part of the subject application as it is under separate ownership and no changes are proposed). The proposed Specific Plan zoning changes include a request to change the zoning designation from L-1 (one acre minimum) to Low Medium (7,200 sf minimum) in Planning Area 7, and from L-1 to L-2 (20,000 sf minimum) in Planning Area 9.

No specific plan land use change is proposed for Planning Area 9. The Tentative Tract Map (No. 23103-2) is a request to subdivide 18.3 acres into 40 parcels, including 37 residential lots and 3 open space lots (Planning Area 7 - 29 residential lots and Planning Area 9A - 8 residential lots).
