- Rolling Hills Estates General Plan Update Draft EIR
- The proposed project is a comprehensive update of the City of Rolling Hills Estates General Plan (proposed General Plan Update or GPU). The proposed GPU would update the Land Use, Mobility (formerly Transportation), Housing, Conservation, Open Space and Recreation, Noise, and Safety (formerly Public Safety) Elements and would include new Sustainability Element. Rolling Hills Estates is essentially a built-out City with only two vacant parcels (other than those designated for open space), a low-density residential parcel and a commercial use parcel. The residential neighborhoods, as well as the parks and recreation areas, in the City are well-established and are not expected to change during the timeline of this proposed GPU. The primary changes included in the proposed GPU include: Apply a new Commercial District Mixed-Use Overlay to the City's Commercial District that would allow for a base residential density of 30 dwelling units per acre with an opportunity for a 50-percent density bonus for projects that provide certain community benefits; Extend the existing Mixed-Use Overlay to the properties designated for Commercial Office; Redesignate the property on the northeastern corner of Highridge Road and Armaga Spring Road from Commercial Office to Neighborhood Commercial; Redesignate of the Seahorse Riding Club parcel along Crenshaw Boulevard from Commercial Recreation to Neighborhood Commercial; Revise allowable land uses in the Institutional designation to include affordable residential uses at 1 to 2 units per acre concentrated in small portions of Institutional properties; Adjust the land use designations of several parcels to match their current uses; Envision changing Silver Spur Road from a four-lane street to a two-lane street, narrowing it to a “main street” scale street, with angled parking (instead of parallel parking), buffered bike lanes, and other amenities; Envision removing Bart Earle Way (replaced by a rear entry drive aisle to access parking) and providing the roadway space for development as an addition to existing parcels along the north side of Bart Earle Way; and Envision reconnecting Deep Valley Drive if and when redevelopment of the Promenade Mall site occurs.
