The proposed project consists of the development of a 108 single family lot subdivision in the R-7,000 zone. As part of the proposed project a General Plan Amendment and Zone Change request are required to change the existing Light Industrial designations to the designations identified above. The project would include dedicating and improving a 200-foot-wide drainage channel along the southerly tract boundary. The Residential Planned Development (RPD) would allow for lot sizes that are smaller than 7,000 square feet and would ensure that future plot plans and elevation submittals include enhanced architectural details.
Subsequent to the City’s approval of all discretionary actions by the City of Lancaster Planning Commission on April 15, 2013 and by the City Council on May 14, 2013, the Joshua tree was listed as a candidate species under the California Endangered Species Act. To streamline the Incidental Take Permit (ITP) process, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife has requested that the City revise the Initial Study to specifically address impacts to the Joshua tree from the proposed project and to identify appropriate mitigation measures. This initial study has been revised to address impacts to the Joshua tree onsite; no other changes to the adopted initial study have been made. All new language can be found in Section IV.a on pages 21 through 23 of this document. No new mitigation measures, with the exception of the mitigation measure for the Joshua tree, have been added
