Document Description
The proposed project would develop 2.5 acres of the 20-acre project site. The proposed project is a Planned Unit Development and would substantially grade the 2.5-acre area for 19 residential townhouses and associated utilities and one access roadway meeting the City’s street standards. The townhouses would be built into the hillside and range from three to four levels with various designs. Access to the townhouses would occur via a new on-site roadway with a cul-de-sac accessed from Campus Drive. The remaining 17.5 acres would remain as open space to be potentially maintained by the future Homeowner’s Association or an alternative mitigation entity, depending on the results of the EIR. There are currently no proposed improvements to the open space.
