Document Description
The proposed project proposes a planned development consisting of a General Plan Amendment, Zoning Ordinance Amendment, Planned Development Plan, a Development Plan and a Vesting Tentative Map. If approved, these entitlements would allow the development of a planned residential, mixed-use, project on 214.1 acres of land in the northeastern portion of the City along the N. River Road alignment. The proposed project would allow for the development of up to 585 dwelling units for an overall density of approximately 2.73 dwelling units per gross acre. The Draft ElR evaluated development of a total of 689 residential units throughout the analysis, for an overall density of approximately 4 dwelling units per gross acre. The total residential unit count has since been reduced from 689 to 656. The total residential unit count has again been subsequently reduced from 656 to 585. The proposed project would also allow for a variety of agricultural uses, housing types, a boutique hotel or restaurant/retail, an education center, and flexible commercial uses on the site. Approximately 68.1 acres would be dedicated to agriculture throughout the project site. Another 17.0 acres of the site are planned for park and open space features, including parks, buffers, trails, and farm plots.
