“Site planning is the art of arranging structures on the land
and shaping the spaces between;
an art inseparable from the architecture it serves.
More than a practical art, its aim is both moral and aesthetic:
to make places that enhance everyday life.”

    Kevin Lynch, Cambridge 1971




CASE NO.:    17-96-23

WHEREAS, the above referenced applicant has submitted an application pursuant to Chapter 16, Subdivision, of the Solana Beach Municipal Code to create a 24-lot Subdivision of land on property owned by the applicant; and

WHEREAS, a General Plan Amendment, Rezone and Specific Plan has been previously or concurrently approved by Council action following public notice and discussion; and

WHEREAS, the application has been duly processed according to applicable law; and WHEREAS, the application is consistent with those prior approvals; and

WHEREAS, on February 18, 1997, the City Council held a duly noticed public hearing to consider the tentative subdivision; and

WHEREAS, at the hearing the City Council received and considered evidence concerning the proposed application; and

WHEREAS, the View Assessment Structure Development Permit procedure as contained in Chapter 17.62, View Assessment, of the SBMC are deemed satisfied as referenced in the Specific Plan and no further on-site View Assessment for those 24 lots within the Specific Plan area is required unless the Specific Plan is modified; and

WHEREAS, the City Council has considered and, on December 11, 1995 by separate resolution, certified the Final Environmental Impact Reports and supporting documents for the applications; and

WHEREAS, this decision is based upon the applications, evidence presented at the hearings, written correspondence and petitions submitted to the City Council, the Final EIR’s, visits to the sites and other legislative facts;

NOW THEREFORE, the City Council of the City of Solana Beach, California, does resolve as follows:

1. That the foregoing recitations are true and correct.

2. That the previously prepared and certified Environmental Impact Report dated December 11, 1995, satisfies the California Environmental Quality Act requirements for this project.

3. That the request for a Tentative Subdivision Map dated December 23, 1996, and on file with the Community Development Department is conditionally approved based upon the following Findings and subject to the following Conditions.

A. Findings: Pursuant to Section 16.24.140 of the Solana Beach Municipal Code the City Council makes the following Findings:

I. The Tentative Parcel Map is consistent with the General Plan and the Zoning Ordinance and Specific Plan. The proposed density of development is consistent with the three dwelling unit per acre density permitted by the underlying Low Residential land use designation. The subdivision is consistent with the LR zone in terms of type of use and density of development.

II. The design and improvement of this subdivision is consistent with the setbacks, floor area ratio, lot design, height, parking, view assessment, and density regulations of the Specific Plan which has been incorporated into the Zoning Ordinance.

III. The site is physically suitable for the detached single-family residential development because it has more than adequate area to provide for the building pads, parking, and yards for each residential dwelling unit.

IV. The project site is physically suitable for the density of development because the majority of the site has a relatively flat topography slope. The size and flat topography of the property will accommodate three dwelling units per acre with usable open space/yard area for each unit. The project density is also consistent with the density permitted by the General Plan and Zoning Ordinance and Specific Plan.

V. The design of the subdivision will not cause any serious public health problems because all public utilities are available to serve future residents of this development, including sewer and water, for the project. The project will not interfere with existing public utilities to adjacent properties.

VI. The design of the subdivision will not conflict with existing sewer, drainage, vehicular access and other utility easements on site and on adjacent properties.

VII. The subdivision does not convert residential real property to a common interest development.

VIII. The subdivision is not subject to a contract entered into pursuant to the Williamson Act.

B. Conditions: Unless otherwise stated, prior to obtaining the Final Subdivision Map or obtaining any permits as appropriate upon reliance on the approval, the Applicant shall:

I. In lieu of re-vegetation as specified in the FEIR, the Applicant shall pay an in-lieu fee to be placed into a fund administered by the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy for appropriate lagoon conservation measures. This fund will be kept separate from all other funds of SELC and can be audited at any time. The fee shall equal one-half the approximate cost of the proposed re-vegetation plan, and the amount shall be specified in the Specific Plan. (At the February 18, 1997 City Council meeting, this Applicant’s fee was conceptually agreed to not exceed $42,500.) (BP)

II. At the Applicant’s request, the Applicant may satisfy its Affordable Housing obligation off-site under Chapter 17.70 of the Zoning Ordinance without increasing the number of single-family homes. (At the February 18, 1997 City Council meeting, the Applicant stated they shall satisfy their obligation off-site. Ordinance 214 presently requires the Applicant to provide either three affordable housing units or two units and an in-lieu fee of $54,000.) (BP)

III. Improvements to the storm drain catch basin at the north end of North Rios Avenue to mitigate effects on the Lagoon shall be developed to the satisfaction of the City Engineer. (DCE)

IV. The affordable housing requirements for two new units and $56,000, or three new units as established by Chapter 17.70 shall be met proportionally prior to the issuance of building permits. (BP)

V. CC&R’s for the project shall be submitted for approval by the City Attorney prior to the recordation of the Final Subdivision Map of the property and shall contain provisions relating to the following: (FM)

a. Developer shall include a list of plant species which shall not be planted within specific portions of the subject project.

b. Pools and Spas shall never be drained into streets, storm drains, backyards or over fences.

c. Street sweeping as required by the FEIR or more frequently as determined appropriate by the City Engineer shall be done at the expense of the H.O.A.

d. Developer shall distribute General Rules provided by the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy to all new homeowners for their educational use.

e. No feeding of pet cats outdoors.

f. Dogs shall be kept on a leash when outside their fenced yard.

g. Meandering path shall be planted by developer and maintained by H.O.A.

h. Tree heights shall be limited to 25 feet or roof top height, whichever is less.

VI. The impacts on public schools serving residents of development of the subject property shall be fully mitigated by the owner and/or developer to the satisfaction of the Solana Beach School District and the San Dieguito Union High School District, as well as the City Council, as indicated in correspondence dated February 4, 1997, referencing signed Mitigation Agreements with both School Districts. (FM)

VII. The mitigation measures identified in the Final EIR, and its certifying resolution, are hereby incorporated as conditions of approval of this Tentative Subdivision Map, Final Subdivision Map and building permits as appropriate.

VIII. The Final Map shall reflect the elevations and details referenced in the Specific Plan.

C. EIR Mitigation Measures and Conditions shall be as follows:

I. An open barrier such as that illustrated in Final EIR Figure 19 shall be used for any necessary perimeter fencing on the west and south sides of the project. The design of the fencing shall be to the satisfaction of the Solana Beach Community Development Director. (This condition shall not apply as perimeter fencing is not proposed.) (BP)

II. Any solid surfaces, regardless of the style of the wall or barrier, shall either be coated with one of the new polymers specifically designed to allow easy removal of graffiti or shall be left as an irregular masonry surface easily amenable to cleaning by sand blasting. (This condition shall not apply to natural wood fencing.) (BP)

III. Landscaping throughout the proposed subdivision shall be allowed subject to specified height limitations. The planting of tree species normally known to grow to heights in excess of 25 feet shall be prohibited, as shall be the planting of vegetation on any portion of a lot that would, in combination with that species’ known height at maturity, likely exceed 25 feet above the elevation of the lot’s building pad. (BP)

IV. Landscape plantings along the eastern property boundary slope shall be limited to low- to moderate-growing materials that will not exceed the height of the adjacent home within the Subdivision. (BP)

V. Appurtenant structures such as potting sheds, fences, satellite dishes, gazebos, etc., shall be prohibited on site wherever their placement would interrupt existing neighboring viewsheds. (BP)

VI. Roofing materials shall be limited to earthen colors, and non-reflective materials. Roof line designs shall be architecturally varied, wherever possible, so as to provide diversity of appearance. The exteriors of the proposed residences, appurtenant structures and their future modifications, shall be limited to earthen colors. (BP)

VII. The development shall be responsible for half-width improvements of both North Rios Avenue and Patty Hill Drive as they front on the proposed subdivision, these improvements shall include curbs and gutters as required by the City of Solana Beach. Such improvements to be performed to the satisfaction of the City Engineer. (FM)

VIII. The development shall provide limited improvements to the intersection of Patty Hill Drive and Barbara Avenue. At a minimum the present alignment of Patty Hill Drive shall be re-configured within the present travel way to provide a reverse curve section at the junction with Barbara Avenue (See Final EIR Figure 28 for a conceptual design). This improvement shall be completed to the satisfaction of the City Engineer. (FM)

IX. The development shall provide appropriate stop controls at the project entrance (Street “A”, See Final EIR Figure 4) to the satisfaction of the City Engineer. (FM)

X. The development shall contribute proportionately to the future improvement of the intersection ramps at both the northbound and southbound movements to and from Interstate 5 at Lomas Santa Fe Avenue. (At the February 18, 1997 City Council meeting, the Council accepted that the determination of the developers’ contributions should be on a pro rata basis, using the anticipated ADTs of 240 trips per day as establishing a reasonable contribution fee.) (DCE)

XI. Owner shall be required to enter into a School Impact Mitigation Agreement (“SIMA”) with the Solana Beach School District (“District”) which provides for adequate funding to construct and/or lease Owner’s proportionate share of school and support facilities necessary to serve new students generated by new residential development with the District’s boundaries. The actual dollar amount required for mitigation in the SIMA, on a per unit basis, depending on product type, shall be mutually agreed upon by Owner and District after good faith negotiations. It is expressly agreed by Owner and the City of Solana Beach (“City”) that Owner cannot and will not obtain final subdivision tract maps and City will not approve any final subdivision map for this Subdivision until a SIMA executed by both Owner and District is presented to the City. Funding required under the SIMA shall be paid prior to the issuance of any building permit and may, at the option of Owner and District, be in the form of a special tax levied under a community facilities district (“CFD”) to be formed by the District and annexed into by Owner. If Owner elects to annex into a CFD, Owner must have irrevocably voted to annex into the CFD prior to the approval of any final subdivision map by City. Owner agrees that the funding required under the SIMA shall not be subject to the limitations set forth in Government Code Section 65995(b)(1) or any future amendment thereto, or any other school fee limitations enacted after the approval of the tentative map for the project. (FM)

XII. The development project will be required to fully mitigate the impact of its development on school capacity within the San Dieguito Union High School District. In this regard, the developer of the project shall, prior to obtaining a building permit for any lot, enter into a mitigation agreement with the affected school district to provide sufficient funds to construct facilities to fully meet the needs generated by the development. (FM)

XIII. The Home Owner’s Association of the proposed subdivision shall, through a contract with the City of Solana Beach or other appropriate entity, have the streets of the subdivision swept on a year-round monthly basis. Street sweeping shall include the streets internal to the subdivision as well as the proximate part of North Rios Avenue and Patty Hill Drive. Street sweeping shall be by means of a vacuumized sweeper and at least three passes per monthly cycle shall be made along each specified curb. This street sweeping will be continued in perpetuity, for the life of the residential project. (DCE)

XIV. See substituted In-Lieu Re-vegetation Fee, Condition 2.B.I.

XV. In order to fulfill the City’s requirement for the maximal utilization of xeric landscaping materials, the project shall make use of native plant species whenever feasible. The use of native materials would limit in some small way the potential for additional nonnative invasions of the lagoon and provide a very limited amount of habitat within the bounds of the Subdivision. (The Specific Plan provides for a list of plant species that are not allowed within the development.) (FM)

XVI. The developer shall prepare, to the satisfaction of the Director of Community Development, Covenants, Conventions and Restrictions (CC&R’s) for the proposed development including a condition notifying the home owner of the proximity of the lagoon, of the biological value of the lagoon, of the need to regulate subsidized predators and providing such additional information and educational material as may be appropriate. An effective homeowner notification mechanism with enforcement provisions shall be included. (FM)

XVII. CC&R’s for the proposed development shall include a condition restricting the ownership of cats to indoor animals and shall prohibit the feeding of cats outside of the residences. (At the February 18, 1997 City Council meeting, the Applicants stated their intent to only restrict no feeding of pets outdoors as agreed to by the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy.) (FM)

XVIII. CC&R’s for the proposed development shall include a condition restricting pet dogs to fenced yards unless otherwise leashed and requiring the home owner to clean up pet waste. (FM)

XIX. Additional testing of the site for adverse concentrations of agricultural chemicals shall be accomplished prior to the issuance of a grading permit. This study shall be conducted by a qualified consultant approved by the Community Development Director. If pesticide or other adverse residues are encountered a remediation plan shall be designed and implemented. If significant levels of pesticides or other toxins are encountered, the developer shall complete a risk assessment to address the possible migration of toxic components through foundations and building pads. These studies and assessments shall be sufficient to scientifically validate findings and address the pesticide/toxin exposure risks for the entire project. (DCE)

XX. Watering of freshly graded surfaces (both cut and fill) shall be conducted to the maximum extent allowed by the on site engineering geologist in order to control fugitive dust. Additional use of water based suppressant and dust control mitigation strategies/chemicals shall be required to absolutely minimize fugitive dust transport outside of the project’s boundaries. (DCE)

XXI. The grading contractor shall be notified in writing, prior to the issuance of grading permits, of the presence and potential presence of chlorinated pesticides, including DDT. The grading and excavation plans shall include an on-site monitoring program to determine both personnel exposure limits (PEL’s) as well as potential for off-site disbursing of airborne or solid-borne pesticides. (DCE)

XXII. Prior to grading of the site a “mounding” study shall be conducted to determine the potential for groundwater rise beneath the finished subdivision. Such a study requires determination of the depth to the existing perched water table, determination of the hydrological conductivity of the water bearing soils (Bay Point Formation), and completion of appropriate computer modeling to ascertain the potential extent of groundwater rise under future conditions. (DCE)

XXIII. Prior to grading of the site a comprehensive engineering geology study of the site shall be conducted to the satisfaction of the Solana Beach City Engineer. This study shall, at a minimum, be based on additional subsurface investigations and shall provide specific recommendations for grading of the site and for the design of all structural components proposed. (DCE)

XXIV. Only grading equipment fitted with exhaust silencers will be utilized in the grading of the project site. Older equipment, lacking or not retrofitted with exhaust silencers, shall not be permitted. All tracked vehicles shall be maintained on a daily basis. Special attention shall be paid to the lubrication of the tracks so as to prevent excessive noise generation. Construction activities shall be limited to the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, including maintenance of grading equipment. (FM/BP)

XXV. Grading shall be limited to the non-rainy season, roughly from 1 April through 31 October. (FM/BP)

XXVI. All graded slopes will be sandbagged during the rainy season to prevent any drainage across the face of the slope. (FM/BP)

XXVII. All finished grades will be constructed so as to direct future drainage away from cut and fill slopes. (FM/BP)

XXVIII. Any graded pads left undeveloped during the rainy season shall be constructed in a manner (utilizing sandbags and other devices as necessary) that they will act as detention basins. The surface of the pad shall act to store runoff, releasing it to the street drains only at a rate less than or equal to the natural runoff rate. (DCE)

XXXIX. Landscaping with a fast growing ground cover (temporary if necessary) shall be installed on all cut and fill slopes prior to the onset of the rainy season. Similarly, graded pads that are to be left vacant for an appreciable period of time during the rainy season shall also be temporarily landscaped with ground cover. (DCE)

XXX. Equipment deliveries, the parking of construction equipment, the parking of the personal vehicles of construction workers, and of related vehicles shall be limited to within the bounds of the subdivision during construction, until such time as the half-width improvements to North Rios Avenue and Patty Hill Drive are completed. (FM/BP)

XXXI. Lay down storage and vehicle parking shall be limited to areas within the subject property (such as the finished interior streets) following initial grading. (FM/BP)

XXXII. A qualified paleontological consultant shall be retained prior to the initiation of grading activities. The consultant shall attend all pre-grade meetings. The paleontological consultant shall monitor all excavations below the weathered zone of the site. If significant fossil materials are encountered during grading, adequate time shall be afforded to the consultant to remove the materials. All fossil materials so recovered shall be curated at an appropriate scientific institution, approved by the Community Development Director, where they shall be made available for future study and reference by qualified professionals, and a brief report of the findings and their disposition shall be made to the City Council.
