Present Land Use
44,721 square feet (s.f.) single-family residential parcel, General Plan Low Density Residential/Urban. The property is located within an existing residential neighborhood and adjoins developed parcels on all sides, except along the street-front side on Upland Road. The property slopes upward from Upland Road with an average slope of approximately 12%.
Document Description
The project requires a Minor Subdivision, Grading Permit, and General Plan (GP) Amendment for a 3-lot subdivision of a 44,721 square feet (s.f.) single-family residential parcel, with proposed lot sizes of 12,010 s.f., 19,023 s.f., and 13,687 s.f. The GP amendment would change the Land Use Designation from Low Density Residential to Medium-Low Density Residential, which would allow the parcel's subdivision into 3 parcels. Applicant proposes to demolish a house built in 1920 and an existing septic system, build 3 new single-family residences, and connect the 3 new parcels to a public sewer and water system (property is not currently located in a sewer or water district). Project includes removal of a 54" d.b.h. Heritage Valley Oak tree (Tree #3), as well as 6 other significant trees. A total of 850 c.y. of cut is needed for driveway improvements.
