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).

Document Description
This proposed project involves the development of 9.89 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 9.89 acres of CA tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense) habitat including temporary impacts to 0.53 acres; the Project will permanently remove 9.36 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 of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project implementation. Minor Amendment No. 2, as approved, modifies the previously issued ITP to decrease the Project Area and required Habitat Management Land area. In approving Minor Amendment No. 2, CDFW determined, among other things, that no substantial increase in the nature or scope of the previous authorization by the ITP, and that no new significant or substantially more severe environmental impacts than previously considered and disclosed would occur.
