Morgan Hill Devco Residential Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Zoning: Residential Detached Medium; General Plan: Residential Detached Medium
Document Description
The proposed project would subdivide a 69.4-acre project site into 320 lots to facilitate the development of 223 one- to two-story single-family detached houses, 42 court-style houses, 21 senior (i.e., age-restricted) cottages, and 34 senior duet units. Out of the 223 single-family houses, 23 of them include an accessory dwelling unit (ADU), and all 21 senior cottage units include an ADU. The project would include approximately six acres of private open space and four acres of public open space. The project also proposes off-site improvements to Jackson Park, Jackson Elementary School, Hill Road, and Barrett Avenue. The project proposes to realign a small portion of Tennant Creek, where it bisects Barrett Avenue, and would concurrently improve the Barrett Avenue culvert to improve flow of runoff. A zoning amendment is proposed to add the Planned Development Combining District, which would allow for a variety of unit types ranging from single-family detached units to multi-family attached units.
