Project Background 

The project site comprises a 27-acre parcel addressed 950 North Silent Ranch Drive, located north of Grand Avenue and Palm Drive. The project site is currently vacant and undeveloped, with the exception of one single-family residence and three existing flood/debris structures. The southerly 12 acres of the project site are zoned Single-Family Residential (E-7, 20,000), and the northerly 15 acres of the project site are zoned Open Space.

The project proposes to subdivide the portion of the property zoned for single-family use to accommodate 12 new residential lots and a new private road within a gated community. The existing single-family residence at 950 Silent Ranch Road will remain. The proposed new lots range in size from approximately 20,000 square feet to 32,000 square feet. The portion of the project site zoned Open Space will be placed under a building restriction where no development can occur, with the exception of the construction of the three new flood/debris structures and an access road proposed to replace the existing three flood/debris structures. Construction activity includes grading for the residential lots, private road and flood/debris structures. The property owner is not proposing construction of any residences at this time.

The City has hired Dudek, Inc., an environmental consultant, to conduct the environmental analysis and prepare an Initial Study for the project pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Staff anticipates that a draft version of the Initial Study will be completed and provided to the City for review by early 2019.

Public Hearings and Schedule

This project requires the approval of a Tentative Tract Map to allow the creation of a new subdivision, a Development Plan Review to allow grading to create the private road and building pads, and a Variance to allow grading into steep slope areas to accommodate the new flood/debris structures as required by Los Angeles County Flood Control. As such, this project requires public hearings by both the Planning Commission and City Council. Public hearing notices will be mailed to all property owners within 500 feet of the subject property and be published in the San Gabriel Valley Examiner when this item is scheduled for public hearings. No public hearings have yet been scheduled for this project.
