Document Description
Request to rezone Planned Development (P-D) (288) to a new Planned Development and to subdivide a 15.9± acre parcel into 67 single-family lots ranging in size, from 6,000 to 12,631 square feet in size. P-D (288) was established by General Plan Amendment 2003-01, Rezone 2003-03, & Tentative Map 2002-02 – Riopel Property (“Pope Subdivision”), which created the Rural Residential-zoned 53-lot subdivision located immediately west of the project site. Two parcels containing a dual-use drainage basin and park serving the subdivision were also carved out of an adjacent 19.16± acre parcel leaving the 15.9± acre portion which was not approved for further subdivision or use. Consequently, development of the site requires a new rezone and tentative map. If approved the applicant proposes for construction to begin within two years of project approval. The proposed vesting tentative subdivision map includes 67 single-family lots with proposed maximum lot coverage of 50%, and two lots, “A” and “B”, to be dedicated to serve as an agricultural buffer and park expansion. If approved, each lot could be developed with one single-family dwelling, an accessory dwelling unit, and junior accessory dwelling unit. Elevations of the proposed housing have been provided by the applicant and can be viewed under Attachment 1 – Maps. The setback requirements will be consistent with those of the County’s R-1 zoning district. The map’s proposed circulation patterns will extend existing County-maintained roads Chalmer and Corona Ways and provide the subdivision access to both existing County-maintained Riopel Avenue and Arnold Road. A “can-serve” letter for water and sewer services to serve the residential development has been issued from the Denair Community Services District for the project. Stormwater is proposed to be managed by the existing basin located on Assessor Parcel Number (APN) 024-022-030. Improvements for curb-gutter and sidewalk are proposed for each lot as part of this project. “Lot B” is proposed to provide a 6,391-square foot expansion to the existing County park parcel located on APN 024-022-029. The project site is currently vacant, was previously planted in row crops, and is surrounded by single-family lots to the west and agriculturally-zoned ranchette parcels to the north, east, and south. County-maintained East Zeering and Arnold Roads provide physical separation between the proposed subdivision and the ranchette parcels to the south and east. In accordance with the Agricultural Element of the General Plan, a proposed 1.36± acre parcel “Lot A” and the proposed extension of Chalmer Way will provide an approximately 150-foot buffer between the proposed single-family lots and the 5± acre ranchettes to the north. Lot A will remain a fenced, vacant parcel with landscaping until the parcels to the north develop. Additionally, a 6-foot high uniform fence will be installed along the perimeter of the developed area to prevent trespass onto adjacent agriculturally-zoned lands.
