Serrano Village C2 is a proposed residential subdivision located within Serrano Master Planned Development in El Dorado Hills. The proposal would subdivide the 122-acre property resulting in the creation of a total of 50 custom graded residential lots, ranging 0.45 acre to 0.9 acre in size and four open space lots ranging from 0.6 acre to 34.7 acre in size. The development is anticipated to occur in two phases. Access to the site would be via Russi Ranch Road which would be a part of the privately maintained and owned road network within Serrano. Public water and sewer service would be provided by EID.

 

These applications were considered by the Planning Commission on November 12, 2015 and were recommended for approval (4-0), including a new Condition of Approval for the installation of a stop sign on Russi Ranch Drive.  In response to the Commission voicing concern on the two design waiver requests regarding sidewalks, Roger Trout, Development Services Division Director, explained that the Design Manual did not require sidewalks for this Village, therefore, the two requests were a moot point.  The Commission had a split vote on the Design Waiver request to exceed the standard street gradient (2-2).  The minutes from the meeting are attached.

 

Further staff research on the validity of the Design Waiver request for exceeding the road gradient for C Court and portions of A Street was conducted. As verified, the proposed road 15% gradients for these roads meet the DISM standards and have been approved by the County Engineer. Therefore, a waiver of this standard is not necessary for the project.
