Document Description
The Oaks Specific Plan (Project) site consists of two existing parcels totaling 42.9 acres. These two existing parcels consist of approximately 2.5 acres and approximately 40.4 acres. The Project includes a land division to create two parcels: one encompassing 8.8 acres (Parcel 1) and the second parcel encompassing 34.1 acres (Parcel 2). Parcel 1 is proposed for the multi-family residential development and associated subterranean parking and Parcel 2 is proposed for the four-story parking structure and existing industrial office building. The Project includes the implementation of two Planning Areas: Planning Area 1 (multi-family residential) is proposed within Parcel 1 and Planning Area 2 (existing industrial park) is proposed within Parcel 2. Planning Area 1 includes the construction of 264 residential units within four buildings, subterranean parking with 274 parking spaces, 161 surface parking spaces, hardscape, landscape, and grading. The residential buildings would include three floor levels of residences and one subterranean level for parking. Planning Area 2 includes the construction of a four-story parking structure that includes 925 parking spaces to replace surface parking that will be removed to accommodate the proposed parking structure and residential development. In addition to the structured parking spaces, the Project includes the construction of 187 new surface parking spaces for the existing industrial office building. Project construction includes the removal and encroachment into the protected zone of various oak and landmark trees. Conceptual grading calculations indicate a total of approximately 84,481 cubic feet of export material. Project construction includes two phases that will not overlap. Phase 1 includes the construction of the proposed parking structure and is anticipated to begin in 2023 and be completed in approximately 16 months. Phase 2 will include construction of the proposed residential buildings and is anticipated to begin in 2024 and be completed in approximately 24 months in 2026. The Project would require the following approvals. • General Plan Amendment 2019-70563 • Zone Change 2021-70556 • Specific Plan 2021-71106 • Residential Planned Development 2021-70558 • Development Permit 2022-70098 • Land Division 2021-70557 • Protected Tree Permit 2021-70559 • Development Agreement 2022-70052 • Environmental Impact Report 2021-71100 • Demolition Permit • Grading Permit • Building Permit
