NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Single Family Detached Residential (SFD-R) General Plan Designation; Single-Family Residential - Scenic Park Overlay Zone and Equestrian Overlay Zone (RS-SP-EQ)
Document Description
The proposed project would involve a request for approval of a Development Plan, Tentative Map, and Density Bonus to allow for the construction of 83 single-family homes on approximately 12.45 acres of the 16.78-acre project site. The project would also include approximately 34,391 square feet of private recreational and amenity area within the development. The project is subject to State Density Bonus Law (Government Code Section 65915) and local Density Bonus provisions (Section 3032 of the Zoning Ordinance). The General Plan designation for the project site is Single Family Detached Residential (SFD-R) with a zoning designation of Single-Family Residential - Scenic Park Overlay zone and Equestrian Overlay zone (RS-SP-EQ). Four (4) of the proposed 83 single-family homes (5 percent of the total) would be designated as deed-restricted affordable housing. The remaining 79 homes would be sold at market rate. The proposed affordable homes would be distributed evenly throughout the community. In order to accommodate the project as allowed under Density Bonus Law, the project cannot physically comply with all of the development standards that apply to standard single-family residential projects. Based on the proposed design to accommodate Density Bonus units, the project anticipates seeking waivers of development standards, including reduction of lot sizes, equestrian development standards removed, reduction or redistribution of setbacks, reduction of open space/landscape minimums, increased floor area ratio (FAR) per lot, and retaining wall heights.The average proposed lot sizes would be approximately 3,200 square feet with homes ranging in size from 1,850 to 2,250 square feet. Primary access to the project site would be from Guajome Lake Road, which would be improved as part of the project. Guajome Lake Road would be improved the length of the property frontage, connecting to Albright Street. Road improvements would include 40-foot curb to curb improvements including a 5.5-foot parkway and a 4.5-foot sidewalk. The internal private road would be 28 – 32 feet wide with 5-foot sidewalks. Each proposed home would include a 2-car garage, and a private driveway that would allow for additional parking of 2 more cars. All homes would be developed on the southern portion of the project site which has been previously disturbed and graded. The project may be required to clear part or all of the Coastal Sage Scrub to provide a fuel modification zone for fire requirements. This will be addressed in the EIR. The project would avoid the northernmost portion of the project site along the riparian corridor, preserving approximately 3.77 acres of the 16.78-acre project site as open space. In existing conditions, the project site is mostly vacant and previously disturbed, with one existing residential house in the northern portion of the property.
