Present Land Use
Horse Boarding Facility and undeveloped / Residential Estate (R-E) / Conservation-Residential
Document Description
The Project Applicant proposes to subdivide the 75.4 acre property. 30 developable lots plus a lot for common open space would be located on the 7.4 acre northeastern portion of the project site currently operated as the Alpine Rock Ranch, which would be removed. Development would include 27 market-rate single-family residences and 12 affordable multifamily units configured as 3 lots with 4 units each. The remainder of the property not included as part of the residential development area is sloped and heavily wooded; it would remain in University ownership and preserved as open space. Within this open space hillside, a fire access road and looped public trail are proposed, and an ongoing Vegetation Management Plan would be implemented to reduce and manage wildfire risk on the property.
