Present Land Use
Governed by Bonita Glen Specific Plan (1977). The site is currently designated under SP as commercial retail; however, as stated in SP, apartments and condominiums, when consistent with the adopted conceptual plan, and when approved under the project plan process and procedure, pursuant to section 2.6, are permitted within the project area of Bonita Glen SP. The SP also states planning commission, upon the recommendation of zoning administrator, may adjust said standards and regulations upon finding that said adjustment will not adversely affect the nature, character, design, order, amenity or intent of the proposed project or SP. According to SP, the project site is currently designated as commercial retail in city GP, but has been zoned as central commercial zone under the zoning plans of city and county of SD GP. As stated in sp, this zone is oriented toward retail commercial and compatible uses, which are characterized by a strong emphasis upon qualitative community design. The CCD uses are those suited to the East Chula Vista-Bonita area and are the foundation of the SP.
Document Description
The project is a 170-unit apartment development within six three-story garden-style buildings (two 21-plex buildings, two 18-plex buildings, and two 13-plex buildings) and one four-story, podium-style building (66 units). The development would consist of 6 studio units, 122 1-bedroom units, and 42 2-bedroom units on approx 5.3 acres. Total building area for the proposed project is approx 149,913 sf. The proposed project includes and total of 231 parking spaces; 101 covered spaces and 130 uncovered spaces. The project also includes recreation areas including a swimming pool, clubhouse, and a small park that will be open to the public. The proposed project uses State Density Bonus provisions that promote affordable housing through the use of density bonus, incentives or concessions, waivers or reductions to development standards, and parking ratios in accordance with section 65915 of the Government Code and Chapter 19.90 of the Chula Vista Municipal Code. The proposed project provides 9 affordable dwelling units (5%) restricted for 55 years to lower income households (50% of the area median income) in a recorded restrictive covenant. The proposed project site is currently bifurcated by an existing ephemeral stream. The ephemeral stream runs south from the northwest corner of the site to the southern boundary of the site. Under the proposed project, the ephemeral stream would remain in a natural state with graded embankments to the east and west of the existing ephemeral stream. Note: See MND for full project description.
