Document Description
The City is considering an application by the owner of a 43.08-acre site on the south side of State Route (SR) 24 to construct a residential subdivision. The City's General Plan allows the property to be subdivided into 33 acres of open space and 10 acres of low-density residential housing (up to a maximum of 20 units). The proposed project comprises 16 residential lots and one open space lot on the 43.08 acre parcel. Although the City's General Plan identifies the Southwood Valley as a potential residential development site, the proposed project is not consistent with the General Plan land use map and would therefore require a General Plan amendment.
