Tuscan Ridge Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
The project site consists of 163.12 acres of what was formerly the Tuscan Ridge Golf Course, located on the southeast side of Skyway, in unincorporated Butte County, between Chico and Paradise, California. The site is currently highly disturbed, with large graveled and/or paved areas void of vegetation, due to damage sustained immediately before, during, and after the 2018 Camp Fire. Three unused and unoccupied structures associated with the previous Tuscan Ridge Golf Course currently exist on-site: a 2,440-square-foot (sf) grill building, an 1,830-sf clubhouse, and a Quonset hut. In addition, an existing potable water well and associated system, including two 10,000-gallon aboveground storage tanks, as well as an existing wastewater treatment system, including septic tanks, leach field, and disposal ponds, are located in the southwestern portion of the site. The project site currently has a County of Butte General Plan land use designation of Planned Unit Development (PUD) and is zoned Planned Development.
Document Description
The proposed project would include subdivision of the project site to develop a total of 165 residential units, 15.9 acres of commercial development, 4.1 acres of landscape, 36.7 acres of open space, 49 acres of special utility district, various on-site road improvements, and a sanitary waste disposal station. The proposed project would require County approval of a Planned Development Rezone; Vesting Tentative Subdivision Map; and a Minor Use Permit for development within the Scenic Highway Overlay Zone. Other approvals necessary to implement the proposed project would include Paradise Irrigation District (PID) operation and maintenance of the proposed project’s water and sewer lines. PID maintenance of such facilities would be covered by an extraterritorial service agreement or annexation of the project site into the PID service area, which would be subject to approval by the Butte Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo).
