Villas at Sierra Meadows 4&5 Residential Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Document Description
The proposed Project consists of the construction of up to 80 single-family residential units and a neighborhood park on an approximately 20-acre parcel. To facilitate the development, the Project also includes a General Plan Amendment, a Tentative Subdivision Map, a Conditional Use Permit, and Annexation to the City of Porterville. The City of Porterville General Plan designates the northern part of the site as Public Institutional and the southern part as Low Density Residential; the Project would amend the land use designation of the northern portion to Low Density Residential as well. Under previous action in 2014, the City prezoned the Project site and much of the surrounding area to RS-2 (Low Density Residential). The Tulare County Local Agency Formation Commission would act on the annexation component following application by the City.
