Hi everyone! PLEZ send emails NOW! The 2022 Sustainability Plan includes the Co’s proposal to re-zone most of Portola to urban residential high density zoning (9 undeveloped parcels immediately impacted). Planning Commissioners next meet re: this Plan on July 13.
SPPt supports growth and housing yet feels this zoning classification is infastructure overload. Concerns include no date and no funding for Portola improvements yet more cars use it all the time; the Plan reduces on-site parking requirements, there’s no increase in public transportation services and more!
SAY NO TO PROPOSED RF – R-UHF ZONING – URBAN RESIDENTIAL, FLEXIBLE HIGH DENSITY: 22- 45 units per 1 acre
1. 45 units per 1 acre is 207 units on 4.61 acres
2.. Developer Density Bonus allowances can JUMP 45 units to 81 units per 1 acre = 373 units on 4.61 acres
URGE a CHANGE TO URBAN HIGH DENSITY RESIDENTIAL ZONING – R-UH: 11 – 30 UNITS PER 1 ACRE (28 IS PREFERRED MAXIMUM):
1. 28 units per 1 acre = 129 units on 4.61 acres; 30 units per 1 acre = 138 units on 4.61 acres
2. Developer Density Bonuses allowances can JUMP 28 units to 50 units per 1 acre and to 232 units on 4.61 acres; 30 units jump to 54 units per 1 acre and to 249 units on 4.61 acres
3.. NO to heights over 35 feet, four (4) stories and/or higher
NOTE: Flashing beacons at 3 crosswalks are due to loud advocacy to PWks by SPPt. The 3 2017-18 Community mtgs were also initiated per SPPt’s efforts > these meetings produced the Portola Commercial Design Guidelines which are Appendix B in the Sustainability Plan.
