Document Description
The proposed project consists of approximately 488 acres located within the City of Montebello. The project site is contained within the Montebello Oil Field, an actively operated oil and gas production facility. The proposed project includes developing this area for the following uses: (1) 1,200 residential dwelling units contained within five planning areas occupying approximately 173.6 acres of the project site; (2) approximately 314.6 acres dedicated for Open Space (approximately a 260 acre Reserve). A series of pedestrian walkways and trails would be constructed within the Open Space area; (3) a 5.5-acre (4.3 net usable acre) public park site (available to City residents). A 1.5 acre private community center constructed for on-site residents would also be provided, in addition to five 0.25-acre pocket parks (one for each planning area); and (4) infrastructure to support the proposed project. These facilities would include sanitary sewer conveyance, portable water conveyance and storage facilities and stormwater drainage conveyance facilities. Two community entry points are proposed and would include access along Montebello Boulevard and Plaza Drive. An internal roadway network would also be constructed to facilitate on- and off-site circulation. Associated discretionary approvals would include amending the City's General Plan and a Zone Change request from the site's existing designation of Residential Agriculture (R-A-O) to Specific Plan. The proposed project would not affect on-going oil and gas extraction activities on the site. Additional approvals include, but may not be limited to, a Development Agreement and Vesting Tentative Tract Map approvals.
