Document Description
Proposed Residential Development The proposed includes the subdivision of the 16.1-acre project site into seven (7) residential lots, including the existing single-family lot. The existing single family home will be retained and remodeled on Lot 1 that will contain ~1.09 acres with a development pad of ~18,550 sf. The six additional residential lots --Lots 2 through 7 - will be developed with new single-family homes. These six lots will range from ~1.15 acres to ~4.18 acres; the development pads will range from ~16,530 sf to ~28,030 sf (net developable land area). The new residential lots were designed to respect the ridgelines, and to be relatively secluded from existing from homes to the north and south. The proposed lots lie significantly below both the primary ridgeline to the northwest and below the three secondary ridgelines that fall from northwest to southeast, with the two flanking secondary ridgelines continuing the fall beyond the Project Site toward Coto de Caza Drive.
