Document Description
The proposed project is a combined Development Permit consisting of (1) a Use Permit to allow the construction of two new two-story single-family residences of approximately 1,770 square feet and 1,080 square feet; each structure has an attached garage, on 30% slopes; and (2) a Use Permit for the removal of 65 protected Oak Trees. The development will require a new 300 foot driveway; approximate amount of grading for the project is 580 cubic yards of cut and 460 cubic yards of fill. Develoment of the project includes the restoration of a previously graded site and the replacement of illegally removed Oak Trees. Consideration of the combined Development Permits would allow the County the opportunity to correct a grading violation for the illegal grading of an access road on slopes greater than 30% and for the removal of native vegetation and illegal removal of 21 Live Oak trees as documented in code enforcement files (CE010136 & CE010143).
