The City proposes to acquire and annex approximately 693 acres (“Hull Properties”) in the Western Hills for open space preservation, while allowing the potential for future low-density residential development on the approximately 54 easternmost acres, consistent with existing development in the Western Hills within the City of Ukiah limits. In addition, the “Noguera Properties”, totaling approximately 14 acres, are included in the annexation proposal for access only, but will remain under private ownership. In accordance with CEQA Guidelines Section 15378 the “Proposed Project” includes the following: 1) Acquisition and annexation of the parcels; 2) Prezoning the parcels to PF and R1-H (and associated Zoning Map and General Plan Map Amendments upon approval of the annexation application); 3) Lot Line Adjustments to reconfigure existing parcels into seven lots (“Development Parcels”) for future potential development; 4) Development Agreement between Hull Properties and the City allowing up to one single-family home and one accessory dwelling unit on each Development Parcel (14 units total); and 5) site improvements including extension of City utilities, road improvements, and construction of a water tank.
