MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
General Plan - Residential land use classification within the Yosemite West Special Planning Area.
Yosemite Scenic Wonders- Proposed development on the 6.22-acre project site, the project proponent proposes to reclassify the parcel from the Yosemite West Special Planning Area land use classification to the Special Plan land use classification and rezone the parcel from the Rural Residential zone to a new zone called Yosemite West Mixed-Use Zone. The additional parcels potentially involved in project development are not proposed for reclassification and rezone.
The new zone as proposed by the project proponents includes the following as permitted uses:
• Multi-family units up to four dwelling units per acre.
• Laundromats not for public use.
• Maintenance support facilities for servicing local home enterprises
• Private office space.
• Self-storage facilities for private use.
Conditional Uses are proposed to be:
• Bulk storage of gasoline, propane, or similar petroleum products for private use.
(Note: It is likely that single family residences and secondary residences as well as vacation rental and bed and breakfast uses will be added as permitted uses in the final version of the new mixed-use zoning text that will be considered for adoption.
Key components of site development as would be allowed by the reclassification and rezone are as follows:
The project includes five multi-unit buildings; three small buildings of about 1,100 sq. ft. each would contain two 1-bed, 1-bath units; two larger buildings of about 2,400 sq. ft. each would contain four units each, two 1-bed, 1-bath and two 2-bed, 2-bath units. There will be a one-bed apartment unit in the laundry facility structure. These facilities will total approximately 10,808 square feet. The units are proposed to house 32 people.
The conversion of an existing garage building on the site will include the installation of a 600 sq. ft. laundry facility to be used to centralize laundry services for the vacation rental facilities managed by Scenic Wonders. The project proponents state that the laundry facility will save approximately 12,068 round trips per year to vacation homes within Yosemite West by Scenic Wonders housekeeping staff, which would be about a 63 percent reduction in local traffic.
