The project site has a General Plan land use designation of Residential Mixed (RM) and is zoned Rural (R), as defined by the County’s Zoning Ordinance and the Land Use Element of the General Plan.
The project would involve the demolition of the existing on-site residence (constructed in the late 1980s), subdivision with subsequent development of 141 residential lots, a public park and open space, utilities infrastructure, internal public streets, and improvements to Old Ranch Road. The project includes 121 single-family detached units and 20 attached duet units. A total of 15 percent of the residences will be affordable, and the applicant will enter into an affordable housing agreement with the County. Up to 25 accessory dwelling units (ADUs) will also be offered as an optional feature to home buyers. The project would require a zone change to Residential Multiple (RM) combined with a Planned Unit Development (PUD) overlay zone to expand the flexibility allowed in the development standards. Sunnyslope County Water District (SCWD) would provide water service to the project, and either SCWD or the City of Hollister would provide wastewater treatment services for the project.
