Document Description
The applicant is proposing an ~104 ft long, 2 lane extension of Monte Cresta Drive from its existing terminus ~1,000 ft northwest of Barclay Way, below (west of) All View Way in the San Juan Hills area of the City of Belmont. The site is currently an unimproved roadway/pathway primarily used by local residents as an open space recreational trail. The roadway extension has been designed to comply with the design standards of the City's Hillside Road Standards - San Juan Hills, as specified in Section 7-13 of the City Municipal Code Item (e) 4 through 9, as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act. The roadway would be a total of 38 ft in width, including two 10 ft wide travel lanes two 5.5 ft wide sidewalk. A 2 ft wide planter strip would be included on the east side of the new roadway. The roadway extension would be supported/protected by retaining walls on both sides, which will require an Encroachment permit from the City of Belmont. These walls would range from 2 to 6 ft in height. The project also would include access to 3 potential driveways, as well as underground extensions of water, storm sewer, sanitary sewer gas, and electric utility lines. It also would include street lighting. tHe project woul require cut and fill of 196 cubic yards of material, to be balanced on the site. Construction of the roadway would occur over a period of about 3 months. The roadway would provide access to 3 currently inaccessible residentially designated lots just west of the western terminus of Monte Cresta Drive (APN's 043-243-340, 043-165-170, 043-165-180). Two of those lots (west of the proposed new roadway) could potentially be developed with small houses (limited to 900 to 1,200 sf each, including garages) while the lot east of the proposed extension could be developed with an up to 3,300 sf house.
