Document Description
The applicant, Chelsea Investment Corporation, proposes to develop a 288-unit affordable housing project on a 12.90-acre parcel (APN 053-740-040). The parcel is zoned CT-Tourist Commercial and will require a rezone to R3 - Multiple Family Residential to accommodate the project. A General Plan Amendment from Tourist Commercial to High Density Residential is also necessary to achieve consistency with the General Plan. A tentative subdivision map is also proposed to create a total of 5 parcels. Four parcels will accommodate each project phase with one parcel dedicated for a stormwater retention basin. A copy of our the Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration and all supporting documents is available by visiting our webpage: www.cityofelcentro.org/communitydevelopment/6th-and-spear-apartments/.
