    If anyone wants to see an example of similar projects and the potential downside, view this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRSdiq3sOTc It may be an extreme example, but the one of the common factors is a building project with a scale that is totally inappropriate for its location.

    Hi Judy,
    Thanks to Leslie Arroyo, Communications Director with SSF, for this update today:

    ‘The final PUC meeting has not been scheduled yet. We expect it to be in early-mid April. Once AGI-KASA schedules this, we will post on our website (main home calendar so that it stands out), publicize in our Weekly Events on the Horizon, will post on NextDoor, Facebook, and Twitter, and will send out a note to all folks who asked to be alerted to PUC news.’

    The Oakmont Meadows from the SSF Staff report:

    ‘Project Description The northerly portion of the original 10-acre parcel is the proposed development site, approximately 4.91-acres in area. The site continues to be undeveloped land.

    A known constraint on the project site is the presence of the San Andreas fault traces; because of the presence of the fault traces, habitable structures are not permitted within a 50-foot setback zone from the main San Andreas fault trace and a 25-foot setback zone from the ancillary fault traces, though roadways, open spaces and detached garages are permitted within these setbacks.

    According to the “Residential Developable Areas” site plan (Attachment 1), 3.39 acres (69%) of the site are comprised of existing earthquake fault and setback zones, and an additional 0.49 acres (10%) are considered too steeply sloped to be developed. Based on this, the remaining developable area for residential uses is 1.03 acres (21%).

    Warmington Residential is proposing to subdivide the parcel to develop 22 single-family attached townhomes. Of the 22 townhomes, eight would be located near the intersection of Westborough Blvd and Oakmont Drive, accessed from a new road off of Oakmont Drive, directly across from Bantry Lane. The remaining fourteen townhomes would be located along the interior of the site, accessed from Shannon Park, which would be extended as a private road from its current terminus within the Oakmont Estates development.

    While the fault traces present a development constraint, the applicant has utilized the required setback areas to provide open space amenities, including both active and passive areas, planted storm basins, and all interior connections for the site, including the extension of Shannon Park Court, sidewalks, and guest parking areas. Approximately 70% of the total site area would serve as common areas.

    The residential component includes seven three-bedroom units, ranging from1,544square feet (sq.ft.) to2,173 sq. ft., and fifteen four-bedroom units, ranging from 2,441 sq. ft. to 2,616 sq. ft. All of the units include a two car garage (detached for five of the units, attached for the remaining seventeen units), with fourteen guest parking spaces. The proposed site plan, architectural details, and landscaping plan are all detailed in the project plan set (Entitlements Resolution, Exhibit B).

    Building Architecture The Oakmont Meadow project’s architectural design reflects a contemporary design, with a stucco and lap siding material palette that is common throughout the area. The design includes muted colors that are intended to allow the buildings to blend into the surrounding hills and trees. Rooflines are a mixture of gable and shed roofs. Architectural elevations are included on Sheets A2.0-2.6 in the project plan set (Entitlements Resolution, Exhibit B).’

    The City will build anywhere there is a patch of land, even if there is an earthquake fault.

    This project will have only 3 affordable units.  As a reminder, to those who think the City is hearing the pleas of  the  working poor, the households that need  4 jobs tp keep up with politicians raising fees, taxes, assesments, on and on. 

    The property values will will not drop, and they are not building enough affordable housing for the demand.

    Where is it written that the site must be 8 stories? Is there a contract? Or is there some other mandate that has yet to be revealed?
