Document Description
The Project Applicant, Pinn Brothers Development, is proposing to subdivide an existing 11.43-acre parcel located at 14521 Quito Road into ten-lots ranging in size from .92 acres to 1.2 acres. The Project would create a new private cul-de-sac with a connection to Quito Road. The private street would provide access to seven parcels and the remaining three parcels would take access from Vessing Road. A .34-acre portion of the site (Lot A) is located on the opposite side of Quito Road and would be dedicated to the City of Saratoga for open space use. The Project subdivision improvements (road and storm drain improvements) would require the removal of 56 protected trees. If the subdivision is approved, it would allow for the construction of ten, new single-family homes and accessory dwelling units. The site is bounded to the north by single family homes, to the east by Quito Road, to the south by Vessing Road, and to the west by Single family homes. To the east across Quito Road is San Tomas Aquino Creek, which is the City boundary line with the Town of Los Gatos. San Tomas Aquino Creek crosses under Quito Road onto the project site and runs north through the north-eastern corner of the site along Quito Road. There are three existing structures on site that are accessible from an unpaved driveway off Quito Road. The three structures include a single-family home, an accessory structure, two abandon wells and an in-ground swimming pool. All existing structures would be demolished. The property is covered by native trees with many Coast Live Oaks. An Arborist Report was prepared, and 683 trees were inventoried. Over five hundred of the trees are classified as protected trees under the City of Saratoga Tree Regulations. Tree species include, but are not limited to Coast Live Oak, Black Walnut and Black Acacia. The Project subdivision improvements include the new streets, utility and storm drain improvements and would require the removal of 56 protected trees.
