REPORT NARRATIVE:

Montecito Estates – Tract No. 10535 is a 24-lot subdivision located at the northeast corner of Diana Avenue and Lotus Way (Attachment 1 Site Map).  The developer, D.R. Horton Bay, Inc., has completed all the conditions specified by the Planning Commission in the approval of the Tentative Map on October 22, 2019. 

 

The City Council is required to approve the map if it conforms to all the requirements of the Subdivision Map Act, and any conditions of approval for the Tentative Map.

 

The developer has furnished the City with the necessary documents to complete the processing of the Final Map and has made provisions to provide the City with the required fees, security, and insurance prior to recordation of the Final Map. The Final Map (Attachment 2) conforms to the requirements of the Subdivision Map Act, and conditions of approval have been met.  Staff recommends that City Council authorize the City Manager to execute a Subdivision Improvements Agreement (Attachment 3), and a Stormwater BMP Operation and Maintenance Agreement (Attachment 4) pending review and approval by the City Attorney.

 

 

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT: Involve

On October 22, 2019, the Planning Commission approved the Tentative Map. Residents within a 300 feet radius were informed of the Planning Commission’s intent to approve the Tentative Map for the project, in which a public hearing was held to allow the public to be involved and voice their concerns over Tentative Map requirements.

 

ALTERNATIVE ACTIONS:

There is no feasible alternative action as the developer has met the requirements of the tentative map conditions approved by the Planning Commission to file for a final map approval.
