DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

Request to consider Rezone Z16-0002/Planned Development PD16-0001/Tentative Subdivision Map TM16-1528/Vineyards at El Dorado Hills submitted by OMNI Financial, LLC to request the following: (1) Rezone (Z16-0002) to apply the Planned Development Combining Zone to the existing underlying zoning of Estate Residential, Five-acre resulting in zoning of Estate Residential, Five-acre-Planned Development; (2) Planned Development (PD16-0001) establishing a Development Plan to allow efficient use of the land and flexibility of development under the proposed Vineyards at El Dorado Hills Project tentative subdivision map, including modifications to select Estate Residential, Five-acre zone development standards including lot size and setbacks, a Density Bonus in the amount of 19 base units, and gated private roads; (3) Phased Tentative Subdivision Map (TM16-1528) creating a total of 42 single family residential lots ranging in size from 43,560 to 46,562 square feet over four phases, which could result in four large lots, one 6.22-acre roadway lot and five open space lots totaling 65.58 acres; and (4) Design Waiver to revise the 101C road easement width standard from 50 feet to 30 feet. The property, identified by Assessor’s Parcel Number 126-100-024, consisting of 114.03 acres, is located north of Malcolm Dixon Road, in the area east of Salmon Falls Road and west of Arroyo Vista Way, in the Rural Region in the El Dorado Hills area, Supervisorial District 4.  (County Planner: Evan Mattes)  (Environmental Impact Report prepared; State Clearinghouse No. 2017102026)

 

On October 24, 2019, staff presented a summary of the project to the Planning Commission.  There was discussion between staff, the applicant's representatives, and the Commission regarding the right-turn restriction from Chartraw Road on the southbound left turn to Green Valley Road, as well as modification to the El Dorado Hills Fire Department Conditions of Approval.  Two public comments were received with one requesting additional time to review the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) and the another one requesting the project be annexed into the EL Dorado Hills Community Service District's service area. Following closure of deliberation and public comment, Commissioner Williams recommended approval of the project, with a second from Commissioner Hansen. The motion passed 3-0, with Commissioners Miller and Shinault being absent.    

 

ALTERNATIVES

The Board may elect to approve the project with changes to the Conditions of Approval; Continue the item to a date certain for additional information and future action; Continue the item off-calendar, which would require a new public notice for future consideration and action; or Deny the application.  A Denial action may need to be continued to a date certain so that staff can prepare Findings for Denial.
