Document Description
The City of Buena Park (City) is processing a request to implement a series of discretionary actions that would ultimately allow for the subdivision of the existing parcel (APN 039-283-25) into two new parcels. The southern parcel (Parcel 1) would maintain St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church and surface parking on 1.44 acres. The newly created 1.76 acre parcel occupying the eastern and northern portion of the site (Parcel 2) would be developed with a primary residential apartment building and 9 single-story casitas accommodating 66 residential units and a 3,000 square foot community center. The residential apartment homes, including 62 one-bedroom units and 4 two-bedroom units, will be reserved for seniors aged 62 and over, with one of the 66 units being an exempt manager’s unit. The Applicant is seeking a General Plan Amendment to High Density Residential, a Zone Change to Medium-Density Multifamily Residential (RM 20), a modification to use permit, and a Development Agreement to accommodate the Proposed Project. The Project will also necessitate a Tentative Parcel Map to divide the one parcel into two.
