PLU: Vacant (primarily chaparral) and one residence
Z: Open Space 5 (Orange County), Rural Residential and General Commercial (Riverside County)
The proposed project would be located adjacent to Ortega Highway in Cleveland National Forest on primarily undeveloped land, straddling both Orange and Riverside Counties. The proposed project includes two development scenarios, Project A and Project B, both of which include the development of 159 single-family residential lots, with minimum residential lot size of 1.5 acres, and the relocation of St. Michael's Abbey. St. Michael's Abbey would include a monastery, convent, church, private high school, boarding facilities, and other ancillary facilities.
Project A would develop the single-family residences and abbey on two non-contiguous parcels totaling approximately 639 acres. Project B would involve a land exchange with the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). The applicant would transfer approximately 469 acres to the USFS for open space, and the USFS would transfer approximately 234 acres to the applicant for residential development. If the land exchange is approved, Project B would develop the single-family residences and abbey on approximately 563 contiguous acres.
Upgrades to existing water and wastewater treatment facilities would be required for the project. Water facility improvements would include both upgrades both within the project site and off-site areas. Wastewater treatment facilities improvements would include construction of on-site treatment facilities.
