The project proposes a General Plan Amendment and Re-Zone of two existing parcels from their existing general plan designations to High Density Residential (HDR) and zoned (DR-20) to implement the City’s newly adopted Housing Element. The proposed sites are identified in the Housing Element as sites Site B and D. Site B (APN 139-031-020) is a 0.64-acre parcel zoned low-density single family residential (20-R-1). Site D (APN 137-260-021)is a 3.71-acre parcel zoned recreational (REC). The project does not include a development proposal. The proposed General Plan Amendment and Re-zone does not have any specific development proposal at this time. The proposed re-zone and General Plan Amendment would allow a future proposal of up to a maximum of 20residential units per acre. Future development proposals would be subject to City review, including environmental review, as applicable, for compliance with CEQA.
