This is a request to rezone a 4.82± acre parcel from Rural Residential (R-A) to Planned Development (P-D) to increase the maximum building site coverage from 40 to 50 percent, and to subdivide the parcel into 17 single-family residential lots ranging in size from 8,000 to 10,594 square feet. Romie Way will be extended through the site which will connect to a cul-de-sac (proposed to serve lots 1-5, 9-16, and Lot A) that will include a stub-out to serve future development east of the project site. The remaining lots (lots 6-8 and proposed Lot B) will have access and road frontage onto Story Road. If approved, each residential lot could be developed with one single-family dwelling, an accessory dwelling unit, and a junior accessory dwelling unit. The setback requirements will be consistent with those of the County’s R-A zoning district. 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 for the development through a 13,098 square-foot expansion (Lot A) of an existing stormwater basin located on APN 024-022-029, which currently serves an existing residential development to the south.
The project site is currently improved with one single-family dwelling and an attached two-car garage; the single-family dwelling and garage will remain on proposed Lot B of the proposed subdivision map. Improvements for curb-gutter and sidewalk are proposed for each lot as part of this project. The project is surrounded by single-family lots to the north and south and the Denair Community Services District facility to the west. An agriculturally-zoned ranchette parcel is to the east of the project site. The applicant has requested an alternative to the County’s Agricultural Buffer requirement of a 6-foot-tall wooden fence to be installed along the easterly boundary of the proposed basin and along the eastern property lines of proposed lots 15 and 16; a barricade per Public Works’ Standards and Specifications is proposed along the street stub to the east to prevent trespass onto the adjacent agriculturally-zoned parcel.
