Document Description
The project is a proposal to annex and develop a 33-acre site known as the "gap" property at 11980 Los Osos Valley Road, just south of Pacific Beach High School. Approximately 19 acres of the site would be zoned for Commercial-Retail (C-R) while 12.5 acres would be open space. The retail portion of the site would be developed with approximately 163,139 square feet of commercial space with eleven separate tenant spaces (ranging from 3,500 to 68,639 square feet). A total of 844 on-site parking spaces are proposed to serve the commercial development. Additional improvements include an extension of Froom Ranch Way eastward from Los Osos Valley Road to Prefumo Creek. In the future, a bridge would be constructed over Prefumo Creek to provide access to properties to the east. The project site would be directly accessed from Los Osos Valley Road as well as from the extension of Froom Ranch Way. As part of the project, the applicants are proposing to remove existing mature riparian vegetation, excavate, and widen approximately 500 feet of the east bank of Prefumo Creek to increase floodwater conveyance along this section of creek. A habitat restoration plan is proposed to replace native riparian vegetation and enhance the creek. The proposed 12.5 acre open space area on the east side of the creek is currently planned to be dry-farmed, but could potentially be subject to future irrigation.
