Present Land Use
Currently the Project site is largely undeveloped; however, there are several trails, an unofficial bicycle motocross (BMX) course, signs of disturbance, and man-made features. One large boulder is painted with an image of an owl and is known unofficially by the community as Owl Rock. The site is zoned as R5 – Mobile Home Subdivision and has a General Plan land use designation of R 6,000 (Single-Family Residential 6,000, square foot lot). However, the proposed Project would not require a General Plan amendment or zone change as the City allows parks in areas zoned and designated for residential land uses.

Document Description
The Enchanted Hills area was recognized by the City as a park-deficient community and subsequently, the City applied and was awarded funds through the California Department of Housing and Community Development to assist in the acquisition of parcels to create a park in the Enchanted Hills area of the City. Currently, the City has applied for a Proposition 68 – Statewide Park Development and Community Revitalization Program competitive grant to construct the park. Through a series of community outreach efforts, the City prepared a conceptual plan for the Project. The plan includes a combination of passive and active recreational features as discussed below. The proposed Project consists of an active sports park. While many natural features of the site would be retained, park development would include the introduction of hardscape and impermeable surfaces as well as turfed and landscaped areas. The park plan includes a multi-use field, child play area, toddler play area, restrooms, picnic shelters, hardscape, parking lots, bridges, trails, a basketball court, BMX course improvements, art rocks, a splash pad, a skating area, and a zip line. Additionally, the Project would retain and incorporate some of the existing site features, such as Owl Rock, and formalize the unofficial BMX course that exists on the site. There are three proposed entrances to the site; one at the intersection of Weston Road and Diana Street, and two entrances that form a horse-shoe drive adjacent to and accessible from Metz Road. The Project would include on-site signing and road striping , improve Weston Road and Metz Road to their full local street alignment along the Project boundary, and provide appropriate sight distance measures in accordance with Caltrans standards. The Project also includes the undergrounding of the electrical transmission line that traverses the southern portion of the site and while the exact alignment is unknown at this time, the alignment will avoid the riparian area that is to be preserved in its natural state.
