Chris Borchert, Principal Planner, City of Hesperia
The Hesperia City Council has been grappling with several issues involving: the 5% ramp down of water allotments to Mojave River Valley purveyors; a somewhat sudden surge in apartment construction; and the consistent impact to Fire land Police services being caused by the small lot tract home developments more recently built within the city. They agreed to put forward a ballot initiative to allow the voters within the City of Hesperia decide on several growth management related development standards which include the following:
Change the minimum lot size for all single family residential to a minimum of 1/3 acre or 14,520 square feet, up from 4,500 and 7,200 square feet;
Change the maximum density for all multiple family residential development to 8 units per acre, down from 15 & 20; and
Restrict the entitlement length to the minimum required periods and not approve extensions of time.
