Document Description
The project proposes to develop a 38-unit townhome community consisting of nine three-story townhome buildings with attached two-car garages. The townhome buildings would utilize four different floor plans that consist of two-, three-, and four-bedroom units, with sizes ranging from approximately 1,236 to 1,925 square feet. Two of the 38 for-sale townhome units would be moderate for-sale affordable units. The townhome buildings would have a maximum building height of 35 feet measured from above natural/finished grade, with protruding architectural features extended up to 36 feet. Each townhome unit would include an attached two-car garage, totaling to 76 parking spaces in garages. Additionally, 35 open surface parking spaces would be provided on-site for guests and residents for a total of 111 parking spaces. Approximately 35,499 square feet of common open space areas and 15,874 square feet of active recreation areas are proposed throughout the site. Construction activities are anticipated to occur in one phase for approximately 25 months and require approximately 3,400 cubic yards of cut and fill to be balanced on-site. The project would require the following City discretionary actions: General Plan Amendment, Site Development Permit, and Tentative Tract Map.
