Public Hearing on Proposed Development off Moss Springs, Bluewater, Moss Landing Thursday September 27, 2012
The Planning Commission's Staff Report is posted online for the public hearing scheduled for Thursday, September 27, 2012 at 4:00 pm, 700 2nd Avenue South at the Howard Office Building Auditorium.I will be attending the meeting to oppose the proposed plan by Developer Mark Marshall. Based on feedback from residents and the staff's recommendation, the maximum density of 132 lots for RS3.75 is too much for the area. I have informed the developer that it is suggested that he continue to work with the community on a plan that is more reasonable and that can be placed under a SP which is a Specific Plan Zoning.
The Public Hearing is scheduled and all are invited to make comment. Additionally, thank you to everyone who attended the community meeting with the developer on Monday, September 10, 2012.

Staff Recommendation




Rezone from AR2a and R10 to RS3.75

Zone Change

A request to rezone from Agricultural/Residential (AR2a) and One and Two Family Residential

(R10) to Single-Family Residential (RS3.75) zoning for properties located at 3120 Bluewater Way,

2929 Moss Spring Drive and at Moss Spring Drive (unnumbered), approximately 800 feet east of

Owendale Drive (11.42 acres).

Existing Zoning

Agricultural/Residential (AR2a) requires a minimum lot size of two acres and intended for uses that

generally occur in rural areas, including single-family, two-family, and mobile homes at a density of

one dwelling unit per two acres. The AR2a District is intended to implement the natural

conservation or rural land use policies of the general plan. This proposal includes approximately

6.67 acres in AR2a zoning. Up to 3 lots could be permitted in the AR2a portion of the site.

R10 requires a minimum 10,000 square foot lot and is intended for single-family dwellings and

duplexes at an overall density of 4.63 dwelling units per acre including 25 percent duplex lots. This

proposal includes approximately 4.75 acres in R10 zoning. Up to 20 lots could be permitted in the

R10 portion of the site.

The current zoning could yield approximately 23 lots. Five of these lots could be duplex lots,

resulting in a total of 28 dwelling units.

Proposed Zoning

RS3.75 requires a minimum 3,750 square foot lot and is intended for single-family dwellings at a

density of 9.87 dwelling units per acre.

The proposed zoning could yield up to 132 lots.





Residential Low-Medium (RLM) is intended to accommodate residential development within a

density range of two to four dwelling units per acre. The predominant development type is singlefamily

homes, although some townhomes and other forms of attached housing may be appropriate.

Item #18

Metro Planning Commission Meeting of 09/27/2012

Consistent with Policy?

No. RLM policy recommends a residential density of 2-4 dwelling units per acre. The proposed

RS3.75 zoning district could result in a residential density that is more than double the

recommended density of the RLM policy (9.87 units per acre). The residential lots in the vicinity of

the proposed zone change are 10,000 square feet in size. This lot size is at the upper limit of the

density recommended by the RLM policy. RS3.75 zoning would permit lots that are approximately

one-third the size of the surrounding lots.

Traffic study may be required at time of development.


Projected student generation 10 Elementary 8 Middle 9 High

Students would attend Lakeview Elementary School, J.F. Kennedy Middle School, or Antioch High

School. All three of the schools have been identified as being over capacity by the Metro School


There is no capacity for elementary or middle school students within the cluster.

However, there is capacity within an adjacent cluster for high school students.

The fiscal liability for ten elementary students is $200,000, and for eight middle school

students is $188,000. This data is for informational purposes only and is not a condition of


This information is based upon data from the school board last updated October 2011.

Metro Planning Commission Meeting of 09/27/2012


Staff recommends disapproval of the zone change request. The proposed RS3.75 zoning district is
not consistent with the RLM land use policy.
