Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration No. 08-13 analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with a proposal to subdivide the 11.65-acre former Lamb School site to accommodate 81 lots for new detached single-family homes. All existing school buildings and site improvements are proposed to be demolished with the project. The project is proposed as a Planned Unit Development (PUD) utilizing varying lot sizes at approximately 3,600 sq. ft. (45 feet wide by 80 feet deep). The project is adjacent to the City's 2.6-acre park site and proposes improvements including a practice field, tot lot, lighting, picnic area and parking. The project proposes to provide crosswalk access from the neighborhoods on the south side Yorktown Avenue to the 2.6-acre park that is adjacent to the project site and includes striping improvements on Yorktown for vehicle ingress/egress to the site. The project includes water quality and stormdrain improvements including construction of approximately 2,080 linear feet of storm drain.
The project requests a General Plan Amendment to change the existing General Plan designation of Public (Residential Low Density) (P(RL)) to Residential Low Density (RL-7). This project also proposes a Zoning Map Amendment to change the existing zoning of Public-Semipublic (PS) to Residential Low Density (RL). The project is located at 10251 Yorktown Avenue, 92646 (northside of Yorktown Avenue, east of Brookhurst Street).
