The project requires a Combined Development Permit, which would include the following: 1. Standard Subdivision Vesting Tentative Map for the division of a 130.8-acre parcel into 29 parcels that include 26 residential parcels (Lots 1 to 26, ranging in size from 1.4 acres to 3.7 acres, with an average lot area of 2.2 acres) and three separate open space areas totaling 73.2 acres; 2. Use Permit for development on slopes over 30 percent; and 3. Use Permit to allow the removal of 215 coast live oak trees for the construction of roads & future development of residences on the project site. The project may additionally include a zoning amendment to add a building site-8 (B-8) zoning overlay district to ensure that the property is not further subdivided & to restrict the potential for intensification of uses beyond the first single family dwelling on the proposed 26 residential lots. Future development of residential lots would require additional permits, such as grading & building permits.
