Present Land Use
The approx 3.48-acre site is zoned R-1-10 nad GPD of S which is single family residential LUD. A residential care facility is allowed subject to the issuance of a CUP. The property is generally vacant and disturbed due to previous grading and fill material being stockpiled on the property. Soil has been built up in multiple areas and a retaining wall up to 14 ft in height was constructed with a fence on top to stabilize the soil onsite. The property is bordered by Reidy Creek and Escondido HS agricultural operations to the east, and limited single family residential development and the Rincon del Diablo Municipal Water District offices and corporate yard on the north. Centre City Parkway borders the property along the western and southwestern boundary. The Quail Creek Apt complex (active senior living) is located further to west across Centre City Pkwy.
Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The project requires discretionary approval of a proposed CUP to allow development of a residential care facility within a single-family residential zone; Grading exemption(s) for retaining walls in excess of 10 ft in height; and a GPA to allow structures up to 3 stories in height within the R-1-10 zone (single family residential, up to 10,000 sf min lot size). The draft IS/MND provides a preliminary assessment of the environmental impacts of the proposed new 3-story (median height of 34'5"), approx 71,316 sf, assisted living/senior care facility to include 22 memory care and 74 assisted living units (totaling 96 beds) and 45 parking spaces, including one van and one accessible space. Access to the project would be provided by a single driveway fronting onto Centre City Parkway on the west side of the subject property. Centre City Parkway is proposed to be widened across the project frontage to provide a transition lane for ingress and egress into the site. The existing creek along the eastern boundary of the proposed development area is proposed to be retained and preserved as a project feature.
