Cameron Meadows (TM23-0003)
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Undeveloped/Residential, One-Acre (R1A)/High Density Residential (HDR)
Document Description
The Project proposes to subdivide the 104.04-acre site into a 161-residential lot subdivision. The proposed Project qualifies for protection under the state Density Bonus Law (“DBL”) (Cal. Gov. Code secs. 65915 – 65918, as amended by AB 2334). Under the DBL, the Project is allowed limited waivers to development standards that would physically prevent the proposed Project from being built at the permitted density. The state Department of Housing and Community Development (“HCD”) confirmed for the County that the proposed Project’s “base density” under the DBL is “five dwelling units per acre because that is the highest available density.” Therefore, re-zoning the Project site is neither proposed nor necessary for the proposed Project to achieve the proposed density of 1.55 units per acre. Proposed residential lot sizes would range from approximately 6,300 square feet to 16,686 square feet and the proposed single-family homes would range from approximately 2,600 square feet to 3,587 square feet. The Project would provide 16 attached accessory dwelling units that would be deed-restricted at a rate affordable to low-income households (based on El Dorado County median incomes set at the time of application), and range from approximately 697 to 772 square feet. The proposed project contemplates use and recordation of phased final maps.
