Document Description
This project is a substantial redesign from a previously submitted planned development proposing 22 residential lots and a ten acre ski lake. The current proposal is for a merger of two lots to allow for the subdivision of the new 534 acre parcel into 5 parcels (Parcel 1 = 5 acres, Parcel 2 = 5 acres, Parcel 3 = 51.2 acres, Parcel 4 = 83.3 acres, Parcel 5 = 389.9 acres). The proposal also includes a major use permit to construct an 11 acre water-ski lake and a deviation from road standards to allow for a road that exceeds 1000 ft in length. The site is currently used for grazing land and is relatively flat. The project proposes water from onsite wells and private septic systems. The lake is proposed to be filled by groundwater. The project also proposes up to six (6) special events at the ski lake per year. A portion of the property is in a flood zone and Long Valley Creek, a tributary to Putah Creek, crosses the property. The majority of the property contains serpentine soil. The project proposes avoidance of wetland features onsite for construction of the pond and road improvements, with soil excavated for the pond to be redistributed onsite with no exportation of fill proposed.
