Document Description
The applicant proposes to subdivide three parcels containing a total of 15.8 +/- acres into 5 residential lots varying in size from 1.5 acres to 2.4 acres, each lot to be developed with a detached single family home, and a 5.2 acre remainder parcel containing an existing single family residence. There will be two internal private road systems with entry gates. The property is proposed to be rezoned from the A-2 (General Agricultural) zone to the P-1, Planned Development District. The development would also be subject to approval of a preliminary and final development plan. An exception is proposed to allow a cul-de-sac longer than 700 feet per Section 92-6.002. The project also consists of a General Plan Amendment to re-designate approximately 10.23 acres from the Agricultural Lands (AL) designation to the Single Family Very Low (SV) designation so that the entire project area is within the same SV designation. Approval of the possibility of allowing second units is also part of the application. An existing trail easement is proposed to be relocated. This project description also includes an annexation to Landscaping and Lighting District L-100. The project also includes a request to amend the location of an access road within an abutting property containing an approved minor subdivision (MS040008) owned by the subject property owners.
