The proposed project will establish 128 single-family detached homes on 40.7 acres and approximately 68.5 acres of open space comprised of natural hillsides, re-established grasslands, a restored Santiago Creek riparian corridor and a managed vegetation/fuel modification zone. The Project includes adoption of the Trails at Santiago Creek Specific Plan. The 40.7 acre single-family detached residential neighborhood will be located in the south-central and southwestern portions of the site abutting an adjacent vacant County-owned parcel. The density of the residential portion of the project equates to 3.1 dwelling units per acre, which is reflective of residential lots in existing surrounding neighborhoods. The single-family detached lots will range in size from 8,000 square feet to 9,000 square feet (82 lots); 9,200 square feet to 10,000 square feet (17 lots); and 10,000 square feet and greater (29 lots). The site is 109.2 acres and currently contains disturbed, undeveloped land that previously supported mining activities and currently supports a sand and gravel operation. The site is currently comprised of 12 parcels and is bisected by Santiago Creek in an east-west direction. The amenities in the open space area will include multi-use trails, trail paseos for hiking and bicycling access, expansion of, and connection to, the 1,269 acre Santiago Oaks Regional Park, and other amenities.
