Document Description
The project involves zoning-level entitlements: a General Plan Map Amendment, a rezone, a Specific Plan Amendment to the Airport Area Specific Plan, a Minor Use Permit for a mixed-use project, Conceptual Site Plan, a Development Agreement, and environmental clearance and permitting for necessary off-site improvements. The requested entitlements would allow for up to 12,500 sf of non-residential space and 280 residential units on the 11.7-acre site. Conceptual site plans for the site reflect the development of 19 residential buildings, two mixed-use buildings, and one clubhouse building. In addition, the project would provide a roundabout at the intersection of Tank Farm Road and Santa Fe Road and interim improvements for Santa Fe Road including two travel lanes and Class IV bike paths.
