NOD - Notice of Determination
Present Land Use
The Southwest Estates project is a 12.94 acre site in Southwest Santa Rosa. The project is near the intersection of Burgess Drive and Bellevue Avenue. The site is bound by Colgan Creek on the south; Bellevue Ranch Subdivision to the north; Elsie Allen High School and Burgess Drive to the west; and undeveloped lands to the east. The project site is in an area which is rapidly urbanizing with numerous pending and approved subdivisions along Dutton Meadow to the east of the site. The project site is currently vacant with a large stand of Eucalyptus trees on the southern portion of the property. The property was most likely used as grazing land in the past. The property has two General Plan Designations. The lower third of the site is designated Medium Density Residential and the upper two thirds of the site are designated Low Density/Open Space. The site is currently zoned PI (public institutional).
The proposed project involves the development of 10.88 acres of undeveloped land into a single-family residential development with associated infrastructure such as public streets, sanitary sewer lines, utility lines, and storm drains.
The project will result in impacts to 10.88 acres of CA tiger salamander habitat including temporary impacts to 0.70 acres; the Project will permanently remove 10.18 acres of CA tiger salamander habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of CA tiger salamander, which is designated as a threatened species under CESA. The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take that may occur as a result of Project implementation.
