Document Description
Parcel Merger Application No. 2012-041 will merge six existing parcels totaling 98.94 +/- acres created by the parcel map recorded in Parcel Maps Book 28, Page 20, MCR. Major Subdivision Application No. 2012-042 will subdivide the merged 98.94 acre parcel into 26 lots ranging in size from 2.52 acres (net) to 12.79 acres (gross). Four of the proposed lots (Lots 1-3 and 23), totaling approx. 12 acres are located within the Community Commercial land use classification of the Catheys Valley Community Plan and thus will be available for commercial uses. The remainder of the lots are located within a residential land use classification and will be available for residential uses. Primary access to the project is proposed from Hornitos Road, a 72' wide public access and utility easement intersecting with State Hwy 140, which also fronts the subject site. Access to interior roadways is via a proposed extension of Catheys Valley Drive, an approx. 2,200' foot interior "dead end" road terminating at a proposed cul-de-sac and emergency exit located at the South property boundary near proposed lot 18. In addition to Catheys Valley Drive, three interior 60' wide easements are proposed all of which are cul-de-sacs. One of these cul-de-sac easements provides direct access from Hwy 140 to three lots. Access to one lot located at the south west corner of the site is via right of way easements (not shown) providing access to this lot from School House Road. An emergency exit (only) is proposed by way of an extension Catheys Valley Drive across APN 016-110-031, a 246-60 acre parcel owned by the applicant, connecting to School House Road. The emergency access easement is a proposed 60-foot wide non-exclusive easement for road and emergency exit purposes. Water supply to serve proposed lots will be provided through a combination of individual wells and shared wells at a ratio of 1 well per 4 lots. Individual wells would be allowed to be developed for each parcel, and septic systems are proposed for each individual lot.
