Document Description
The project proposes General Plan amendments, a rezoning, and a Planned Unit Development (PUD) allowing a development density of 20 dwelling units per usable acre on a 4-acre portion of the project site. The rezoning would also require that any development proposal on the PUD portion of the parcel provide a minimum of forty (40) percent of the total number of housing units as affordable. Following project approval, development of the PUD portion of the project site would be by-right in that the use and density for the site would not be discretionary. The PUR portion of the site contains a maximum of 4 usable (developable) acres equating to a maximum of 80 dwelling units, and is located on the eastern-most portion of the subject parcel. The remainder of the project site would be designated in the general plan and zoned to accommodate an approximately 3-acre visitor accommodation use, an approximately 4-acre medical facilities use. The proposed project6 would amend the General Plan Land Use Designation of the parcel from "Visitor Accommodations (C-V)," and to "Commercial-Office (C-O)," Residential, Urban High (R-UH)," and "Visitor Accommodations (C-V)," and would amend Figure 2-5 in the General Plan related to Coastal Priority Sites to accommodate the change in Land Use Designation. Additional, the section of the Seacliff Village Plan relating to specific uses on the parcel would be amended to allow for the proposed residential and medical facility use on the project site. Finally, the parcel would be rezone from "Special Use (SU)" to "Multi-Family Residential, 2000 square feet per unit, Regional Housing Needs Combining Zone District Development of the remaining portion of the subject property not included in the PUD would not be "by-right" and would still be subject to further environmental review. Location is intersection of State Park Drive and Highway 1 in the Seacliff Village area.
