Document Description
The proposed project is a General Plan Amendment and Zone change of the 21-acre site from Light Industrial to Residential Medium High Density (approx. 12 acres) and Open Space (approx. 7 acres). The remaining two areas are roadways. Additionally, approx. two acres would be dedicated for an on-site roadway. The applicant of the proposed project is 440 Kings Village, LLC (applicant). Per the Land Use Element of the City's General Plan, the allowable density for the Residential Medium High Density is 5-9 units per gross acre. However, as described in CH. 17.12 of the City of Scotts Valley Municipal Code (SVMC), the minimum individual lot area within the R-M-6 zone is 6,000 sf. This would allow for the potential future development of up to 87 dwelling units on the 12 acres of re-zoned R-M-6 land. Based on anticipated site constraints and City development requirements, a conservative maximum allowable density of 87 residential has been assumed for purposes of environmental review. A final maximum allowable residential density for the site will be determined through a Planned Development process for the site which will be required once a specific project applicant has been submitted. Regardless of dwelling unit count, future residential development on the site will be limited to disturbed areas, which includes the existing buildings and paved parking and roadway areas. A portion of the project site includes a secondary access road (Kings Village Road) from the industrial area up to Bean Creek Road. This roadway will limited to emergency vehicle access only, as well as non-vehicular access for pedestrian and bicyclists.
