Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
The +/- 20 acre parcel is currently developed with a 1,000 sf 2-story residence and appurtenant on-site sewage disposal system. Water is provided by Willow Creek CSD. GP: Property is split between Agriculture Rural (1 unit per 5-20 acres) and Agricultural Suburban (1 unit per 2.5-5 acres). Z: Property is split between Agriculture General - 1 acre minimum (AG-B-5(7)) and AG-10 acre minimum (AG-B-5(10)).

Document Description
The subdivision of a +/- 20 acre parcel into three parcels of approximately 14.92, 2.57, and 2.54 acres each. The proposed 2.57 acre parcel is developed with a residence and associated sewage disposal facility. Water service is provided by Willow Creek CSD. The applicant has provided sewage disposal testing and an R-2 Soils Report to verify that the proposed parcels will be suitable for residential development. The parcel's southern property is the centerline of Willow Creek. A 100' wide Streamside Management Area will be established through this application. The project includes a Zone Reclassification for a zone boundary adjustment to realign the existing zoning boundary between the AG zones establishing 1 acre (AG-B-7(1)) and 10 acre (AG-B-5(10)) minimum parcel sizes to better match the proposed parcel configurations and underlying General Plan land use designations and density. The zone boundary adjustment will preclude further subdivision.
