Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
Subdivision creating 27 lots ranging in size from 2.61 acres gross (2.50 acres net) to 16.87 acres. The total acreage of the project site is 114.84 acres. The proposed lots are located within a residential land use classification and will be available for residential uses. Access to the project is from an extension of Hornitos Road (south of Highway 140) into the project site. Hornitos Road at State Highway 140 is improved with a left turn lane. The extension of Hornitos Road on-site is via a 60-foot-wide non-exclusive easement offered for dedication. This easement connects to Guenthart Way at the northeast corner of the project site, which also connects to State Highway 140 at an existing CalTrans encroachment, recently improved through the encroachment permit process for another land division. The applicant proposes a “gate to Cal Fire specifications” at the intersection of the project site access road and Guenthart Way, and this access to State Highway 140 is shown as an access to be used for “emergency access purposes”. Four additional on-site 50-foot-wide non-exclusive cul-de-sac easements created for use and benefit of the subject lots are proposed for access within the project site. There is an existing ranch road on-site, which is the proposed main access road alignment for only a small portion of the route. There is an existing highway access encroachment (off proposed Lot 12), which is not proposed for access to the project site. The project site is located at 2748 Highway 140, Catheys Valley and is known as APN 016-110-049. It is in Sections 3 and 10, in Township 6 South, Range 17 East, MDBM. It is in the USGS 7.5-minute Catheys Valley topographic quadrangle.
