Document Description
PROJECT DESCRIPTION The Project proposes to develop a 326-unit residential subdivision within the City of Hanford. An approximately 8-acre portion of the site at the northeast corner of the property is intended to be removed via a lot-line adjustment. The Project is within the City of Hanford’s Sphere of Influence but will be annexed into the City. The Project will be developed with a 326-unit single-family subdivision, a 3.58-acre park, and a 3-acre retention basin. Lots will range between 5,000 to 7,000 square feet and would be developed with single-family residential units. Associated utility and right-of-way infrastructure would also be developed in accordance with City of Hanford standards and regulations. Approvals include: • Approval of Tentative Tract Map 943 • Prezoning – Because the project site does not currently have a City of Hanford zoning designation, prezoning of the site is required. The project site would be prezoned to the R-L-5 zone. • Site Plan Review – The Project will require approval of an SPR • Annexation into the city limits by Kings County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo)
