Document Description
Annexation No. 2022-02 is a request by 4Creeks, Inc. to annex two parcels totaling approximately 59.84 acres into the city limits of Visalia and to detach said parcel from Tulare County Service Area No. 1. The Belissa Tentative Subdivision Map No. 5587 is a request to subdivide the 59.84-acre site into the following: 159 low density residential lots; 150 medium density residential lots; a high density residential lot that will be developed with a 168 unit apartment complex on a 7.15 acre site; and a 7.88 acre Neighborhood Commercial site which will be developed in the future. Conditional Use Permit No. 2022-05 is a request for a Planned Development which will include 160 low density residential lots and 150 Medium Residential lots, most of which will be less than 5,000 square feet as required by the R-1-5 zoning district. The R-M multifamily lots must be a minimum of 2 acres in area. The project will include the construction of local streets within the subdivision, connection to N. Demaree Street to the east and W. Riverway Avenue to the south. Frontage street improvements will also be required along both streets along with right of way dedications. These types of improvements include construction of curb, gutter, sidewalks, and the installation of park strip landscaping and streetlights throughout the subdivision. The subdivision is anticipated to provide vehicular connectivity to an existing subdivision to the southeast of the subject site. Conditional Use Permit No. 2023-22 is a request by 4Creeks to establish a 168-unit multifamily residential development on a 5.74 acre property within the R-M-3 (Multi-Family Residential, 1,200 sq. ft. minimum site area) Zone. The development of the property, if approved, will create additional housing units in the northwest portion of the City at a density of 5.7 dwelling units to the gross acre within the Low Density Residential designation area, 10 dwelling units to the gross acre within the Medium Density Residential designation area; and 22.1 dwelling units to the gross acre within the High Density Residential designation area; all of which are consistent with the General Plan.
