Document Description
Adopt Ordinance No. 06-16 - An Ordinance of the City Council of the City of Irvine approving Zone Change 00387433-PZC to revise text approving Zoning Code and Change the Zoning from 1.3 Conservation Open Space to 2.3M Medium Density Residential for the Lambert Ranch Property. The proposed project consists of a General Plan Amendment (00387430 - PGA), Zone Change (00387433 - PZC), Conceptual Master Plan (00387431 - PMP), Park Plan (00387432 - PPP), and Vesting Tentative Tract Map (00388680 - PTT) to allow for the development of 169 single-family dwelling units on a 51.1-acre site. There are three planned detached housing types, and the existing Lambert Family Home will be retained. From the main entry to the community, a landscaped "esplanade" provides a physical and visual connection to the existing "landscaped" hillside. The end of the esplanade provides a link to the 1.77-acre neighborhood park with a resort/lap pool, tot lot, community building, and barbecue areas to be utilized by the surrounding community. A component of the neighborhood park will include an area located in a small valley at the southeast base of the hill, preserving and enhancing the existing landscape. Several small park areas, gardens, and the esplanade are provided in the immediate area of residences and will be landscaped and have furniture available for the enjoyment of all residents. A system of paseos and trails provides an extensive pedestrian network, providing direct access to the smaller homes and recreational facilities.
