Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

This Pre-Application Conceptual Review is being presented as a required process associated with Board Policy J-6, "General Plan Amendment Initiation Process", which requires an "initiation" hearing before the Board.  This hearing is for determination of compliance with the criteria of Policy J-6 only.  There are no entitlements or approvals authorized from this Pre-Application public hearing.  This item is for discussion  purposes only.

 

This is a request to consider Pre-Application PA19-0003/Town Center West Planned Development submitted by Oakmont Senior Living for an Initiation Hearing (Conceptual Review) for a proposed Specific Plan Amendment for the El Dorado Hills Specific Plan and Town Center West Planned Development to allow the inclusion of Mixed Use Development in the plan area.  The proposed future Mixed Use Development would include a mix of commercial development and feature an age-restricted residential development of up to 20 residential units per acre, as part of the Development Plan for the center located in Village U. The property, identified by Assessor’s Parcel Numbers 117-160-011, 117-160-012, 117-160-013, 117-160-014, 117-160-031, 117-160-048, 117-160-049, 117-160-050, 117-160-051, 117-160-052, 117-160-053, 117-160-054, 117-160-055, 117-160-056, 117-160-057, 117-160-064, 117-160-065, 117-160-067, 117-160-068, 117-160-069, 117-160-070, 117-180-014, 117-180-015, 117-180-016, 117-180-017, 117-180-018, and 117-180-019, consisting of 116 acres, is located on the west side of Town Center West Boulevard, north and south of the intersection with White Rock Road, within El Dorado Hills Town Center West, in the El Dorado Hills area, Supervisorial District 1. (County Planner: Aaron Mount)

 

The purpose of the change is to provide the potential for development of a mixed use area that buffers the existing residential neighborhood from future commercial development in Town Center West and to provide for a transitional housing option for the surrounding age-restricted housing developments in the immediate vicinity.
