Document Description
A minor subdivision of one approximately 26.6 acre parcel into two parcels of approximately 10.1 acres and 16.5 acres. The property is currently developed with three single family residences and the proposed subdivision will site one residence onto a separate parcel while two of the residences will be sited on the other parcel. One of the residences on proposed Parcel 1 was placed without Building Permits and is a violation. The SP is sought to legitimize this Secondary Dwelling Unit (SDU). The properties are served by one-site water and sewage disposal. The site is heavily constrained by access issues resulting from a substandard road that exceeds the allowed length under section 3112-11 of the Firesafe Ordinance. Firesafe exceptions have been sought, but only granted for the substandard width per section 3112-3 of the Firesafe Ordinance. Other than the Eel River located > 1,000' to the southwest, there are no known creeks or other wet areas on or adjacent to the site and existing development.
