Sunset Drive Townhomes Project

Present Land Use
Northern portion of the site: General Commercial (GC)/Commercial (C-1); Southern portion of the site: Medium High Density Residential (MHD)/Multi-Family Residential (R-M (15))
Document Description
The Project involves approval of a General Plan Amendment, Zone Change, Site Development Plan, Condominium Housing Permit, and Tentative Subdivision Map, to develop 38 two-story townhomes and associated improvements on a 4.32-acre site. The project site is located on the west side of Sunset Drive/S. Emerald Drive and is split by an existing driveway that serves the Green Valley mobile home community. Of the 38 proposed townhomes, 24 units would be located north of the Green Valley mobile home driveway on 3.09 acres, and 14 units would be located south of the existing driveway on 1.18 acres. The 38 townhomes would be split amongst 10 buildings on-site. The northern portion of the site is currently designated as General Commercial (GC) with an associated zoning designation of C-1 (Commercial) in the Vista General Plan 2030 (City of Vista 2011). The project proposes the site be redesignated to Medium Density Residential (MD) with an associated zoning of Multifamily Residential (R-M (10)). The southern portion is currently designated Medium High Density Residential (MHD) which allows 15 dwelling units per acre (du/acre) and has an associated zoning of Multi-Family Residential (R-M (15)). The land use and zoning designation for the southern portion of the project would remain as is in proposed conditions, as the proposed 14 units on the southern portion of the site would be consistent with the current land use and zoning. The project would require a General Plan Amendment and Rezone for the northern portion of the project site, which would allow for the development of 24 residential units. Site access is proposed via one full access driveway serving the 24 units in the northern portion of the site, as well as two driveways serving the 14 units on the southern portion of the site. The southernmost access point for the southern portion of the site, closest to Sky Haven Lane, would serve as emergency access only, while the northern driveway would provide day to day access for the southern 14 units. The project site currently features an existing residence and associated structures which would be demolished prior to project development.
