Document Description
Annexation No. 2021-03 is a request by Quest Equity, LLC, to annex one parcel totaling 32.35-acres into the City limits of Visalia, and to detach said parcel from Tulare County Service Area No. 1. The Higgins Ranch Tentative Subdivision Map No. 5585 is a request to subdivide the 32.35-acre parcel into a 174-lot single-family residential subdivision with additional landscape and lighting district lots. A Tentative Parcel Map (TPM 2022-01) has also been submitted in order to facilitate financing and split the phasing of the project into two phases. The project will include the construction of local streets within the subdivision, connection to Cherry Avenue to the north and Lovers Lane to the west. Frontage street improvements will also be required along both streets. These types of improvements include construction of curb, gutter, sidewalks, and the installation of park strip landscaping and streetlights throughout the subdivision. The subdivision is anticipated to provide vehicular connectivity to a future subdivision to the east of the subject site. The project site is located on the southeast corner of the S. Lovers Lane and Cherry Avenue intersection (APN: 127-030-018).
