The proposed project, Lima Property Specific Plan, would guide the future development of a new master planned community on 347 acres. The proposed buildout would include development of 1,280 residential units, 30,000 square feet commercial space, a K-8 elementary school site, and open space/recreational amenities. An additional 65 residential units, or a total of 1,345 residential units, would be developed if the Southside School District makes the decision not to acquire the school site. Groundwater is expected to be the primary source of water supply. Three wastewater treatment options are being considered for the Plan Area, including 1 )connecting to the City of Hollister system, 2) constructing a stand-alone treatment plant, and 3) construction a system to serve the Plan Area and adjacent Tres Pinos wastewater treatment system.
