The Project Site is comprised of six existing legal parcel, totaling up to 19.91 acres. The applicant is proposing to build one single-family residence on each of the six parcels. The proposed residences are two stories in height, with a height of approximately 27 feet above grade, and floor area of approximately 2,700 square feet each according to the preliminary architectural plans. The actual sizes and heights of the residences may differ from the preliminary plans when ultimately built.

A CUP is also required for the water distribution system, Ball Mountain Mutual Water Company, which serves the subject parcels and two adjoining parcels (APN 3231-010-026 & 3231-010-029). Each of these two adjoining parcels contains a single-family residence.
