Proposed 24 unit (single room occupancy) Ultra High Density Apartment Project With Only 18 Parking Spaces
6/12/21 Update: As a refresher, the developer is utilizing SB35 (a newer law forced on local governments by Sacramento) that circumvents traditional development review and can deny the right of appeal. This project is proposing the equivalent of 44 units per acre. With the possible exception of a legal action, there is little that neighbors can do to stop this project.
It is currently under review by Project Clean Water to ensure that the runoff from the project does not adversely impact local watersheds.
10/14/20 Update: The lead County planner stated that there are no updates to report. Check back for updates and/or sign-up online.
8/6/20 Update: Per County staff, this proposal will be using the provision in State Senate Bill (SB35) to "streamline" approval of 24 single-room occupancy units on this small lot (.54 ares) on this busy and accident-prone intersection.
The developer is using SB35 to "streamline" approval in exchange for proposing an ultra-high density project which is now in pre-application phase with the County (Case No. 20PRE-00000-00003).
With just 18 parking spaces for 24 units, residents of this project will have to park in adjacent neighborhoods - - adding traffic to a busy and accident prone intersection.
I'll be touching base with County planners and will update this post.
