23.40.010 Specific plan district.

A. Purpose. The purpose of the specific plan (SP) district is to designate unique planning areas within the City for which the City Council has adopted or requires adoption of a separate planning document, a specific plan, consistent with the General Plan and State law (Sections 65450 through 65457 of the Government Code). Specific plan purposes, content requirements, and procedures are outlined in EGMC Section 23.16.090, Specific plans.

B. Designation. On the zoning map, all property within a designated specific plan area shall be delineated in a manner similar to that of any other zoning district except that each SP-zoned area shall also bear a number or name that distinguishes it from other specific plan areas. The assignment of the SP designation and number or name serves to provide a reference to the corresponding specific plan adopted by the City Council. If there are unique zoning regulations and standards applicable to the land area, such provisions will be established in the adopted specific plan. The following specific plans have been adopted and designated on the zoning map under the following ordinances:

1. Laguna Ridge specific plan (Ordinance No. 15-2004, adopted July 21, 2004).

C. Allowed Uses. Except as otherwise provided, allowed uses within the specific plan area are those listed uses in the specific plan.

D. Development Standards. Except as otherwise provided, development standards within the specific plan area are those standards listed in the adopted specific plan. [Ord. 6-2019 §3 (Exh. A), eff. 4-26-2019; Ord. 26-2006 §3, eff. 8-11-2006]

Special planning area purposes, content requirements, and procedures are outlined in EGMC Section 23.16.100, Special planning area.

B. Designation. On the zoning map, all property within a designated special planning area shall be delineated in a manner similar to that of any other zoning district except that each SPA-zoned area shall also bear a number or name which distinguishes it from other special planning areas. The assignment of the SPA designation and number or name serves to provide a reference to the corresponding special planning area documents and exhibits adopted by the City Council.

C. Development Standards. The minimum net area, lot width and public street frontage of each lot in the RM-1 zone shall be as set forth below. The public street frontage for lots fronting on a curved street or on the curved portion of a cul-de-sac street may be measured along an arc located within the front fifty (50' 0") feet of the lot, and based on a center point coincidental with the center point of the street curve. If such arc is further than twenty (20' 0") feet from the right-of-way line of the street, that arc will be considered the front yard setback line of the lot.

D. Yards. No building, structure or mobile home nor the enlargement of any building, structure or mobile home shall hereafter be erected or moved onto property in the RM-1 zone unless the following yards are provided and maintained:

1. Front Yard. There shall be a front yard depth of not less than twenty (20' 0") feet. No recreation vehicles, trailers, or boats shall be stored or parked in said front yard, except for in the driveway.

2. Rear Yard. There shall be a rear yard depth of not less than twenty (20' 0") feet. On a corner lot the rear yard may be provided opposite the side street yard instead of at the narrow end of the lot, provided the combined area of the substituted rear yard and the interior side yard shall not be less than the area which would be required for the area of a normal rear yard and interior side yard. The resulting interior side yard at the narrow end of the lot shall not be less than ten (10' 0") feet. On an interior lot the minimum depth of the required rear yard may be reduced to ten (10' 0") feet if an equivalent or greater amount of space is added to the required side yard area so that the combined total area of the rear and side yards is equal to or greater than the minimum area which would otherwise be required for the combined rear and side yards.

3. Side Yard. There shall be a side yard of not less than five (5' 0") feet for one (1) story buildings and mobile homes and seven and one-half (7' 6") feet for two (2) story buildings and mobile homes.

4. Side Street Yard. On corner lots there shall be a side street yard of not less than fifteen (15' 0") feet for all single-family detached mobile homes and accessory structures. All other buildings shall provide side street yards of not less than twenty-five (25' 0") feet.

E. Roofed Area. The total roofed area including mobile homes, accessory buildings, ramadas, canopies, carports, and awnings shall not exceed fifty (50%) percent of the net area of the lot. [Ord. 8-2011 §§18(B), (C), eff. 6-24-2011; Ord. 26-2006 §3, eff. 8-11-2006]
