Vacant lots / E-1 One-Family Residence Zone / Residential, Three Units per Acre

Document Description
The project consists of five inter-related applications located at the end of the lower portion of La Vista del Oceano Drive (which is currently unimproved), centrally located in that neighborhood. The affected project site totals approximately an acres and a half with the individual residential lots averaging approximately 13,700 sf. Four of the vacant lots are proposed for development with new residences and associated improvements: 1568 La Vista del Oceano Dr. (035-180-085); 1570 La Vista del Oceano Dr. (035-180-084); 1575 La Vista del Oceano Dr. (035-170-023, 022); and 1576 La Vista del Oceano Dr. (035-180-058). The upper three lots (1568, 1570, and 1576 La Vista del Oceano Dr.) would be accessed from a private driveway that comes off of La Vista del Oceano Drive. Each site proposes a single-family residence with two covered parking spaces (ranging from approximately 2,700 to 3,900 sf) and one uncovered guest space. Estimated grading for the homes and roadway would consist of approximately 3,427 cy of cut and 3,076 cy of fill outside the main building footprints and 1,543 cy of cut and 5 cy of fill within the building footprints. The proposal includes raising the La Vista del Oceano Drive road bed a maximum of 8 feet (where the unimproved roadway abuts this project) and completing the connection from Ricardo Avenue to the lower paved portion of La Vista del Oceano Drive. Due to topographical constraints, the raising of the road bed, and a shared driveway for the upper lots, numerous retaining walls (which vary in height) will be required for this project. These tallest retaining walls would be approximately 11 feet tall, although most would be less than 6 feet. Additionally, guard rails/fences will be required in certain areas for safety purposes. Overall construction time for the proposal would be approximately 14 months.
