Document Description
The project includes a Site Development Permit, Planned Development Permit, General Plan Amendment, Community Plan Amendment, CIPOZ, Rezone, Vesting Tentative Map, Sewer Easement Vacation and Variance from the lnclusionary Housing Regulations to develop 536 residential units on a vacant 112.3-acre property adjacent to 14455 Rancho Penasquitos Boulevard. The project entails the development of a vacant property (non-operational golf course) to create a residential subdivision with 455 multi-family attached and detached residences for those aged 55 and above, a three-story building with 81 senior affordable multi-family apartments, a 2.87-acre (net) public park, privately owned/pubiiciy accessible 2.75-miie 11Social Loop" trail, 0.52- acre privately-owned/publicly accessible park with mobility amenities, other private open space/parks and recreational amenities for project residents' use, and internal streets. Retaining walls around the site perimeter would vary from 3 to 12 feet high. The residential privacy fencing along the eastern edge of the property will be designed to also protect project uses from 1-15 noise. The project would be fully landscaped and would incorporate a variety of sustainable design features. Utilities to serve the project are available in the immediate vicinity. Vehicular access to the project site would be provided from Penasquitos Drive at the existing intersection with Jana! Way, arid from a new right-in only access road off of Carmel Mountain Road (including provision of a new deceleration lane for right-turning traffic and an emergency-only egress right-out lane from the project site onto Carmel Mountain Road). The project would provide a roundabout at Janal Way/Penasquitos Drive/Project Access and a traffic signal at Cuca Street/Penasquitos Drive/Hotel Karlan Driveway. The project also would improve and retain an existing fire/emergency access/egress connection from Del Diablo Street to the northwestern portion of the project site, as well as an existing off-site emergency access/egress between Andorra Way and Corte Raposo. As part of the project approval, a General Plan Amendment is needed to change the designated land use from "Open Space" to "Residential" and an amendment to the Rancho Penasquitos Community Plan is needed to change the on site designated land uses to a combination of Low.:Medium Density Residential (i.e., 5 to 10 dwelling units per developable acre), open space, and parks, including both neighborhood and commercial parks. The project also proposes a zoning change from residential and commercial zones RS-1-14 and CV-1-1 to residential and open space zones RM-1-1, RM-3-7, OR-1-1, and OP-1-1. A Community Plan Implementation Overlay Zone would be placed over the residentially zoned portions of the site to require discretionary review of site development proposals. Permits will be required from the Army Corps of Engineers and the Regional Water Quality Control Board to impact and reestablish an unvegetated ditch that runs through the eastern portion of the site.
