 CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 09



Meeting Date: March 25, 2003

Subject/Title: Rezoning of an approximately 14.7 acre site from a mix of R-2 and R-3 (Moderate and High Density Multi-Family Residential) to Planned Development Zone 63 (PD-63) and establishing development standards for property generally located south of Lone Tree Way and east of Shady Willow Lane.

Submitted by: Community Development (Oshinsky/Hill) 

Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager



RECOMMENDATION
Introduce and waive the first reading of an ordinance approving the rezoning of a 14.7 acre site from a mix of R-2 and R-3 to PD-63 with development standards.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None.

BACKGROUND
The subject property is an underdeveloped 14.7 acre site generally located south of Lone Tree Way and east of Shady Willow Lane. The property has been purchased by the Affordable Housing Development Corporation to develop a 178-unit apartment project. This project will provide 36 units of affordable housing to very-low income households. They are requesting a rezone of the property and the adoption of development standards in order to move forward with this project. The project itself is exempt from the RGMP process due to its location within the northwest quadrant. The establishment of a planned development zone with the creation of specific development standards which will accommodate this development is preferable. The recommendation to rezone and the design review for the project were approved by the Planning Commission on March 10, 2003. The proposed development standards are consistent with comparable multi-family zoning designations and are set forth below:

DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS FOR PD-63
In order to regulate this development and move forward with the project as proposed, the following development standards for PD-63 will need to be adopted as summarized below:

Minimum Lot Area: Six thousand (6,000) square feet
Minimum Lot Width: Fifty (50) feet
Minimum Street Frontage Setback: Ten (10) feet
Minimum Rear Yard Setback: Twenty (20) feet
Minimum Side Yard Setback: Five (5) feet with an aggregate of fifteen (15) feet
Allowable Dwelling Units/Bldg: The maximum number of dwelling units within an individual building shall not exceed eight (8)
Maximum Lot Coverage: The main residential buildings and all accessory buildings shall not cover more than forty (40) percent of the lot area
Maximum Building Height Limit: Two (2) story units not to exceed thirty (30) feet. One (1) story units not to exceed twenty (20) feet.

These proposed development standards are consistent with other development standards for similar multi-family zoned properties within the City. 

FISCAL IMPACT
None. The adoption of development standards in itself will not create a fiscal impact.

WHEREAS, the City Council held a public hearing on the proposed rezoning on March 25, 2003, for the purpose of reviewing the application, considering the Planning Commission's action, and considering all comments made by the public with respect to this proposed zone change; and

WHEREAS, after the close of the public hearing, the City Council considered all public comments received both before and during the public hearing, the presentation by City staff, the staff report, which includes an analysis of the consistency of the proposed project with all other goals and policies of the City and the General Plan, and all other pertinent goals, policies, regulations and documents regarding the proposed zone change; and

4. The proposed rezone has been processed in accordance with the applicable provisions of the California Government Code and the California Environmental Quality Act.

5. That the subject property regulated as a planned development will clearly result in a more desirable use of land, and a better physical environment than would be possible under any single or combination of zones.

6. That the PD designation for the subject property presents a unified and organized arrangement of land uses which are appropriate in relation to adjacent or nearby properties.

7. On the basis of the whole record before it, there is no substantial evidence that this project will have a significant effect on the environment.

8. The rezoning will provide standards resulting in development that is consistent and compatible with surrounding uses.

9. That the natural and scenic qualities of the site are protected with adequate available public and private open spaces designated on the development plan.
