The development of Dixon’s Homestead is moving forward and draft maps for the next two phases will be presented to City Council at its meeting on Tuesday.
The Homestead Project is a multi-phased development in South West Dixon, south of West A Street near Pitt School Road. The development would include 1,365 single and multi-family units, 32 acres of retail space and a 41-acre employment center. The development is part of Dixon’s South West Specific Plan, approved by the City Council in 2004.
Taylor Builders, the project developer, has submitted a request for a draft map of what is known as the Azevedo property, which adjoins Pitt School and West A, for the third and fourth phases of the project. The proposed map provides for 201 residential lots, six open space lots, and 10 acres that would remain owned by the Azevedo family for their home.
The draft map does not include the Weyand Ranch subdivision, as Community Development Manager Raffi Boloyan and Associate Planner Scott Greeley wrote in a staff report that the final map has already been approved.
The proposed map for the Azevedo property, Boloyan and Greeley wrote, was consistent with the design and number of lots envisioned for Homestead.
“The request is generally consistent with the general Dixon plan, the specific Southwest Dixon plan and the amended EIR for the specific Southwest Dixon plan,” they wrote.
Taylor Builders also submitted a request requesting planned development changes, which call for changes to code restrictions or density requirements in a given area. These demands include decreasing the minimum lot size, rear and front yard setbacks and minimum lot frontages in five different villages.
Boloyan and Greeley wrote that lot areas, widths and frontages for villages in the Weyand Ranch area, but proposed setbacks and lot covers may be offered for review to allow for greater development flexibility within the framework. one or more future design reviews.
“Approval of this PD change does not guarantee that an applicant will have an approved design with these standards,” according to the staff report. “An applicant will need to demonstrate quality design before these standards are permitted. The PD, effectively, sets an upper threshold for what the Planning Commission can expect to see in future design reviews for these villages. »
Staff recommends Council approve draft maps and planned development.
In other business, council will consider a budget amendment of $176,124 to acquire a new temporary office trailer for finance department staff.
The board will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 600 EA St. The meeting can also be viewed online at Cityofdixon.us/MeetingAgendasMinutesVideos.
