Document Description
A GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENT to redesignate a portion of the site from Park, Open Space and Recreation to Residential; Community Plan Amendment to redesignate a portion of the site from Open Space to Medium Density Residential; A REZONE from RM-2-5 and RS-1-14 to RM-1-3 (Residenital-Multiple) and OC-1-1 (Open Space-Conservation); SEWER EASEMENT VACATION; VESTING TENTATIVE MAP to create two lots; PLANNED DEVELOPMENT PERMIT; and a SITE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT to construct a 55 multi-family residential unit development. The project would split the 15.2-acre lot into two separate lots; 4.9-acre Lot 1 would include the proposed project development; 10.3-acre Lot 2 would consist of an open space lot. The multi-family residential units would be within five separate structures. The structures would be clustered in the center of Lot 1 near the terminus of Paseo Montril. Each structure would be up to 40 feet in height. The proposed residential development would adhere to Design Guidelines specifically developed for the site. Each unit would include a one or two-car garage, with bicycle parking provided within each garage. The development would include exterior open space use areas intended for residents to utilize, including a dog park, community bar-b-que and picnic areas, landscaped areas with seating, and private balconies. Future maintenance and operation of the project would be through a homeowner’s association (HOA) that would be responsible for all private roads, private utilities, and common amenities. The project would preserve the area outside the graded footprint that contains Environmentally Sensitive Lands (ESL; steep slopes or sensitive biological habitat) within a Covenant of Easement. The Covenant of Easement would in include land use restrictions with the intent to preclude future development and to preserve the area. Various site improvements would also be constructed, including internal infrastructure improvements comprised of hardscape, landscaping, utilities, and retaining walls. Allowable deviations from development standards are proposed that include side yard setback, front yard setback, and height. The vacant approximate 15.9-acre project site is located at the terminus of Paseo Montril. The General Plan designates the site Park, Open Space and Recreation; whereas the land use designation is Open Space and zoned RM-2-5 (Residential Multiple) and RS-1-14 (Residential-Single) in the Rancho Penasquitos Community Plan. Additionally, the site is within Airport Influence Area (MCAS Miramar – Review Areas 2), Airport Land Use Compatibility Overlay Zone (MCAS Miramar). (Assessor’s Parcel Nymner:315-020- 00.)
