CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 11

Meeting Date: October 28, 2003

Subject/Title: Public Hearing to consider a rezone request (RZ 02-11) and related Vesting Tentative Subdivision Map (TSM 8561) for 511 single family homes for the proposed Rose Garden Residential Development, east of the Union Pacific Railroad Tracks between Lone Tree Way and Neroly Road.

Submitted by: Community Development Department (Mitch Oshinsky/Winston Rhodes)

Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION
The City Council take the following action:

Introduce and waive the first reading of an Ordinance approving the Rose Garden Environmental Impact Report and RZ 02-11, rezoning approximately 133.4 acres from a mix of R-1-E, R-1, and R-2 to PD-65, creating six subareas and establishing specific development standards for each of the subareas.

PREVIOUS ACTION
The site was annexed into the City in November 2000. The site was zoned R-1-E consistent with the 1993 General Plan and was included in the Central Brentwood Annexation. In November 2001, as part of the General Plan Update, the zoning for two portions of the site was changed based on landowner requests. Approximately 31.3 acres immediately adjacent to the Union Pacific Railroad tracks was rezoned from R-1-E to R-2 and approximately 20 acres was changed from R-1-E to R-1 resulting in the present mix of three residential zones for the site. This project was considered and approved by the City in 2002. The project was the subject of a lawsuit and referendum and the City Council rescinded all prior approvals as part of a litigation settlement agreement last year. The Planning Commission recommended approval to Council of the rezoning request RZ 02-11 at its meeting of September 22, 2003.

BACKGROUND
On September 22, 2003, the Planning Commission approved the Vesting Tentative Subdivision Map (VTSM 8561) and the corresponding Design Review (DR 02-34) for the Rose Garden project. The project is located on 133.4 acres north of Lone Tree Way, west of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks, and south of Neroly Road. The project includes 511 residential lots, 7 neighborhood parks totaling approximately 8.7 acres, and open space and trails totaling approximately 8.9 acres including a private swim club (see the attached Development Plan). The Planning Commission conditioned the project to include additional public park space to assure compliance with the City’s public parkland standard of 5 acres per 1,000 population. The applicant agreed to add lots 313 and 314 to Parcel B in the southeast portion of the site to meet the City public park space standard (reducing the total number of lots from 513 to 511).

ANALYSIS
The General Plan includes four separate land use designations for the site. The approximate acreage and applicable mid-range and maximum density for each planned residential land use category is as follows:

General Plan Dwelling Unit Potential
Designation Acres Mid-range Maximum

Very Low Density
Resid. (1-3 du/ac.) 80.01 160 240

Low Density
Resid. (1.1–5 du/ac.) 18.51 56 93

Medium Density
Resid. (5.1-11.0 du/ac.) 29.78 238 328
Open Space 5.10 0 0

133.40 454 661

The combined General Plan mid-range density for the project site is 454 dwelling units. The maximum combined density for site allowed under the General Plan is 661 dwelling units. The applicant is proposing to create 511 residential lots which is 57 units (or 13 percent) above the mid-range density but less than the maximum potential lots allowed under the General Plan. The applicant is complying with the City’s Affordable Housing Ordinance and is therefore entitled to a 9.22 percent (or 42-unit) density bonus above the mid-range density. In exchange for the 15 additional units over mid-range, the applicant is proposing a private swim club amenity, substantial assistance with the construction of the temporary (“shoofly”) bypass roadway for the Lone Tree Way under-crossing project, and the realignment of Neroly Road to address a long-standing local roadway safety concern.

The General Plan calls for the maintenance or establishment of buffers and open space edges between Brentwood and the neighboring cities of Oakley and Antioch. The rezone request reflects an open space buffer along the common boundary with Oakley as well as along the western edge of the PD-65 zone adjacent to the Union Pacific Railroad tracks.

The applicant, Pulte Homes, is seeking to rezone the project site from a mix of R-1-E, R-1, and R-2 zones to PD-65 and adopt specific development standards for the project site. The rezone request is necessary to create one zoning district and establish site-specific development standards for seven separate parcels comprising the property covered by the related vesting tentative map. The rezone request includes the creation of six subareas in conjunction with the establishment of PD-65 with accompanying development standards (see Attachment C of the proposed ordinance). Four subareas include 481 single-family detached homes, pocket parks, trails and open space on 126 acres. These subareas establish minimum lot sizes ranging from 3,000 to 7,000 square feet. A fifth subarea includes 30 attached single-family “duet” units on approximately 3.1 acres interspersed throughout the PD-65 zone. The last subarea includes a private swim club to provide a recreational and social focal point for the neighborhood.

The swim club is proposed for private use serving the neighborhood only. However, provisions have been included in PD-65 to allow an expanding food service component and special swim-related activities with a Conditional Use Permit requiring further Planning Commission review.

The proposed PD-65 standards allow for a unique mix of lot sizes and ultimately housing choices and various affordability levels. The standards establish a neighborhood setting in which residential lots are situated in close proximity to “pocket” parks and trails. The standards provide for a unique subdivision with a creative and complementary range of uses consistent with the General Plan. Approval of the development standards for PD-65 is necessary for final approval of the proposed vesting tentative subdivision map request.

Although the project abuts vacant parcels over an acre in size, the project complies with the City’s density transition policy. East of the proposed subdivision are two proposed projects that either have or are seeking a zoning designation that would enable subdivision of adjacent lots of a similar size. The proposed Rose Garden project includes 8,000- 9,000 square foot lot sizes adjacent to vacant land where 10,000 – 11,000 square foot lots are currently proposed in conjunction with the Magnolia Ranch and Blumen Ranch development projects.

An Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was prepared for this project in accordance with the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). A copy of the document was previously provided too the City Council and is available for the Council’s review in the Community Development Department. Several potentially significant impacts were identified; however, mitigation measures were included to reduce those impacts to less than significant levels. The Planning Commission and Staff recommend that the Council approve the project EIR as part of the action taken on the rezone request.

The Planning Commission has recommended approval of the PD-65 development standards which will allow the applicant to develop the site to its potential while maintaining consistency with the residential designations of the site and ensuring compatibility with existing and future land uses in the vicinity of the site. The Planning Commission and Staff believe that approval of the proposed development standards would serve to implement the goals and policies of the General Plan by facilitating development of the project site and will not adversely impact the development of adjacent parcels. An ordinance to rezone the project site and adopt development standards has been prepared for consideration by Council.

FISCAL IMPACT
The project developer is required to pay all relevant fees as specified in the conditions of approval for the Vesting Tentative Subdivision Map. The project, once developed, would generate additional property tax for the City. The project will also increase demand for the urban services the City provides which will result in ongoing service delivery costs associated with the new neighborhood.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Brentwood hereby finds and determines as follows:

1. That the rezone request provides a better land use planning approach and more comprehensive zoning designation than exists prior to the application; and
2. The site is physically suitable for the type and density of development proposed, in that the General Plan designates the site for a mix of residential uses, the proposed density is less than the maximum allowed under the General Plan and the project complies with all applicable requirements of the Zoning Ordinance; and
3. The proposed rezone request has been processed in accordance with the applicable provisions of the California Government Code and CEQA, in that a FEIR and MMP has been prepared for the project; and
4. The design of the project and proposed rezone request is not likely to cause serious public health problems, in that the FEIR analyzes all potential project impacts related to public health and includes mitigation measures that reduce all potentially significant impacts to less than significant levels; and
5. The City Council has reviewed and considered the FEIR. The FEIR reflects the independent judgment and analysis of the City Council. The Council hereby certifies that the FEIR is adequate and objective and complies with CEQA and incorporates the findings and conclusions of the FEIR herein by this reference; and
6. The proposed rezone request will establish clear development standards for the uses permitted under the General Plan, the Zoning Ordinance, VTSM 8561 and DR 02-34; and
7. The proposed rezone request is consistent with the City’s previously expressed intent to adopt development standards prior to or in conjunction with the approval of any specific projects.
8. The proposed rezone request will provide development standards resulting in development that is consistent and compatible with surrounding uses, in that the design of the project and the conditions of approval for the project, including all mitigation measures, will reduce impacts on surrounding property owners to less than significant levels; and
9. That the PD zoning district for the subject property presents a unified and organized arrangement of land uses which are appropriate in relation to adjacent or nearby properties
10. The proposed rezone request will provide for adequate public uses and private open space, in that the project complies with all applicable goals and policies of the General Plan, as well as with all applicable requirements of the Zoning Ordinance; and;
11. The project will not create a detrimental imbalance between the public service needs of its residents and available fiscal and environmental resources (Government Code Section 65863.6); and
12. The rezoning request will result in more desirable use of land and an improved physical environment than would be possible under any single or combination of existing zones because the proposed 133-acre development plan has been designed as a coordinated development between seven separate parcels that includes shared infrastructure, a combination of attached and detached single-family uses and unique public as well as private amenities.
13. The rezone request involves areas that have suitable relationship to one or more abutting public streets which will provide physical access to the project site, and said streets as planned are adequate to carry any traffic generated by the development, in that Lone Tree Way is a major arterial that bounds the south side of the project, and Neroly Road is a minor arterial that bounds the north side of the project, and that the project includes a traffic analysis that is incorporated into the FEIR, which further analyzes all potential impacts related to transportation and circulation and includes mitigation measures to reduce all potentially significant impacts to less than significant levels, and that based on the traffic analysis conducted for the project, there is sufficient capacity with appropriate improvements to accommodate the traffic anticipated to be generated by the development and the adjacent land uses in the vicinity; and
14. The plan for the proposed development presents a unified and organized arrangement of homes and service facilities which are appropriate in relation to adjacent or nearby properties, and adequate landscaping and/or screening buffers are included to ensure compatibility, including masonry sound walls along the southern and portions of the western and northern project site boundary, where homes abut arterial roadways or are near to the Union Pacific Railroad Tracks; and
15. The natural and scenic qualities of the project site are protected with adequate public open spaces because the project plans will provide for the retention of open space along the western and northern boundary of the project site and through the construction of a network of on site pedestrian/bicycle trails and neighborhood park amenities that will facilitate recreation in the vicinity of the project, for the neighborhood and the community..
16. The effect of this ordinance on the housing needs of the region surrounding Brentwood has been considered by the City Council, which has balanced those needs against the public service needs of its residents and available fiscal and environmental resources (Government Code 65863.6)
17. The FEIR identifies the significant and potentially significant environmental impacts associated with the Project and proposes mitigation measures to avoid or substantially lessen significant and potentially significant impacts. These mitigation measures have been included in the MMP.
18. Compliance with the MMP will be included in the Project conditions of approval. Therefore, all significant environmental impacts will be reduced to an acceptable level in that all such effects can be avoided, will be avoided or reduced to a less than significant level.
19. The proposed rezoning request and accompanying development standards are consistent with the existing City General Plan and other applicable City plans because the provisions are consistent with the residential and related land use designations and with the planned density allowed for the project area.
20. The development of the project site, in the manner proposed by the applicant, will not be detrimental to the public welfare, will be in the best interests of the City and will be in keeping with the general intent and spirit of the Zoning Ordinance and with the City’s General Plan, including all relevant Elements thereof, adopted by the City, in that the FEIR analyzes all potential impacts of the project and includes mitigation measures to reduce all potentially significant impacts to less than significant levels.
21. On the basis of the whole record before it, there is no substantial evidence that this rezone request will have a significant effect on the environment.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Brentwood does hereby ordain as follows:
