Document Description
The Project proposes to rehabilitate one existing single-family residence to be used as an office for the Great Scott Tree Service (GSTS) administrative functions, remove the second residence (previously converted for office use) and the structures related to animal keeping, create parking areas for the tree service vehicles and equipment, and create a concrete pad for drying wood chips associated with GSTS tree cutting operations. Four separate gated driveways would provide access to the Project site: two entries with access directly from Linear Lane and two driveways from the existing private driveway that extends onto neighboring properties (from Linear Lane. Landscaping, walls and fencing are proposed to be provided within and around the Project site. The Project proposes three bioswales that would extend along a portion of the northern perimeter of the Project site, adjacent to Serrano Creek. The bioswales would provide for improved water quality and would be underlain with an underdrain. The underdrain from each bioswale would pipe flow and then discharge into a proposed detention basin. The Project proposes a General Plan Amendment, Zone Change, approval of a Development Agreement, Use Permit, and a lot line adjustment.
