Document Description
The proposed project involves the development of 111 low-density residential units, a 15,765 SF pocket park, and stormwater retention basin. The project will require re-zone of the project site from R-1-7 and C-3 to R-1-4, and a general plan amendment for the project site from Neighborhood Commercial and Medium Density Residential to Low Density residential. The proposed project would result in on-site infrastructure improvements, including new local residential streets and new and relocated utilities. The proposed project would include the signalization of the Cartmill Avenue/De La Vina Street intersection, as well as frontage improvements, including sidewalks.
