Proposed Feather River Ranch Subdivision Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Zoning: Airport Business Park / General Plan: Airport Business Park
Document Description
The Project is the subdivision of a 44.97-acre site into 172 single-family lots. Current General Plan land use designation is Airport Business Park (ABP) and zoning district is Airport Business Park (ABP) with an Airport Influence Area Overlay (AIA-O). None of these designations allow the development of residential uses at the densities requested of 3.82 units/acre for the proposed Project. Therefore, a General Plan amendment and rezone will be required to approve the Project. The Proposed Project includes a request to change the General Plan land use designation to Medium Low Density Residential and a request to rezone the property to the Single Family Residential (R-1). The Site is within the B1 and B2 compatibility zones for the Butte County Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan. This compatibility zone does not allow residential development at the density proposed for the Project without an override by the City Council. The Site is currently vacant undeveloped land. Elevations range from 230 feet above mean sea level (AMSL) at the southwest corner of the Site to 190 feet AMSL at the northeast corner, generally sloping from west to east.
