The Project involves the development of an active adult community of 1,017 single-family homes and a 17,500 square foot (sf.) to 25,000 sf. Amenity Center on the west side of the Project site. Development on the east side of the Project site includes 67 conventional single-family residential units, a 200 room resort hotel, a 65,000 sf. neighborhood commercial center, and an approximately 4-acre assisted living/skilled nursing/memory care facility with up to 100 beds. The Project would include the creation of a 45.3-acre on-site agricultural preserve and a 153.5-acre off-site agricultural preserve, and an approximately 25-acre open space park on the easterly hills of the property, above the commercial area adjacent to the existing golf course.
The Project will result in permanent impacts to 383 acres of California tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense) habitat. The Project is expected to result in incidental take of California tiger salamander, which is designated as a threatened species under the California Endangered Species Act. The ITP referenced above as reissued by CDFW to a new Permittee, and incorporating Amendment 1, authorizes project related incidental take of California tiger salamander subject to various conditions of approval that will, among other things, minimize and fully mitigate all the impacts of the authorized taking.
