Document Description
Use Permit 03-19-5257 is a request to develop 66 single-family attached units in a duplex condominium configuration and associated improvements including common area and private front yard landscaping in the neighborhood known as "Oreste". Sixty-two of the units are designed as "front loaded duplex" homes, where each home's front door and attached garage is located off a common alley/drive aisle, predominantly in an eight-unit clustered configuration. Four units facing Denali are designed as a conventional single-family duplex with attached garages oriented toward the street. The proposal includes a total of 8 court enclaves. Seven enclaves are comprised of 8 dwelling units, and 1 enclave is comprised of 6 dwelling units. For enhanced architectural curb appeal and a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood, the Plan 2 unit has been designed with the front door elevation oriented along the frontage streets, Siena and Denali. Pursuant to the approved Serrano Summit Area Plan (Area Plan 2009-01 ), the project requires a Use Permit as it requests minor deviations from the development standards in the Area Plan to reduce the front yard setback on 9 units and to exceed the The Serrano Summit project was originally part of the City of Lake Forest Opportunities Study, which resulted in an amendment to the City's General Plan and the rezoning of five properties to allow for residential development. The Opportunities Study was evaluated under a Program Environmental Impact Report (SCH# 2004071039) which was certified by the City of Lake Forest City Council in June 2008. A subsequent project specific Environmental Impact Report (SCH# 2011051009) was prepared for the Serrano Summit project (Tract 17331) and the Serrano Summit Area Plan (Area Plan 2009-01) and certified by the Lake Forest City Council in February 2012. The Serrano Summit-Civic Center Addendum to the project specific Environmental Impact Report was certified by the Lake Forest City Council in November 2016. The Serrano Summit-Civic Center Addendum was not challenged and thus is presumed valid in accordance with Public Resources Code section 21167.2. The proposed Use Permit (UP 03-19-5257) is consistent with scope of the approved Area Plan and Tentative Tract Map 17331. Therefore, the adopted EIR and Serrano Summit-Civic Center Addendum serve as the environmental documentation for the project in· compliance with the requirements of CEQA. No further environmental review is necessary pursuant to Public Resources Code section 21166 and· State CEQA Guidelines section 15162.
