The Vineyards at Deer Creek (the Project) is a proposed residential community of up to 2,400 residential units within Special Planning Area (SPA) 2 of the Brentwood General Plan, at least 80% (1,920 units+/-) of which will be age-restricted active adult and a maximum of 20% (480 units+/-) will be un-restricted market-rate housing.
The Project site is currently located outside of the City of Brentwood's city limit lines, Sphere of Influence (SOI), and Urban Limit Line (ULL). Thus, the entitlements include requests for annexation, prezoning, SOI Amendment, and ULL Amendment (by voter initiative pursuant to Measures J and L). The average gross density across the Project site would be three dwelling units per acre, which is beyond the scope of the General Plan land use designation for SP A 2, thus requiring an amendment to the General Plan. Each of the six residential neighborhoods may have a neighborhood recreation center. A centrally located community recreation center will serve as the focal point to the community and include a variety of indoor and outdoor recreation amenities. Located adjacent to Balfour Road and Deer Valley Road, an approximately 20-acre commercial/civic area is envisioned for civic events and functions. Integrated throughout the Specific Plan area will be approximately 225 acres of permanently established agricultural and open space land use areas. The areas will include extensive areas of vineyards, olive groves, and open space, reinforcing the characteristics of a Mediterranean environment. To improve traffic circulation and safety, off-site roadway improvements include, but are not limited to, widening Balfour Road from two to four lanes and extending American Avenue west and north to Balfour Road.
