Document Description
Final EIR #616 analyzed a proposal by the Project Applicant for the development of a residential community of a maximum of 340 single family homes including two estate lots on 469 acres on an undeveloped site located within the unincorporated area of Orange County. Final EIR #616 analysis included the construction of a gated community with large lot, low-density residential neighborhoods at an overall density of 0.73 dwelling units per acre. Once developed, approximately 62 percent of the project site will be open space, parks, and landscape areas. The project would also include at least 12 acres of active and passive parks, 7 miles of trails (pedestrian, bicycle and equestrian) with linkages to existing trails and open space areas, two underground water reservoirs, fuel modification areas, and limited continued oil production. The residential areas will have an average lot size of 18,553 sq. ft. Two estate lots in Planning Area 2 are custom sites 21.78 acres and 2.08 acres in size. The proposed Project is designed to cluster residential pads to maximize open space preservation and preserve the natural ridgelines and topography to the greatest degree possible, including all major ridgelines bordering Chino Hills State Park. The construction operations are anticipated to require grading of approximately 15 to 16 million cubic yards, which will balance on site. Alternate access configurations have been advanced and can be approved through conditions contained within the proposed Esperanza Hills Specific Plan. The Project proposes a General Plan Amendment from 5 Open Space to 1B Suburban Residential, a Zone Change from A1 Agricultural and A1-(O) Agricultural with an Oil Production Overlay to S Specific Plan and adoption of the Esperanza Hills Specific Plan.
