Placer supervisors approve Greyhawk III project in Granite Bay
June 07, 2016
The proposed Greyhawk III subdivision project in Granite Bay was approved by a 4-0 vote (Supervisor Robert Weygandt was absent) today by the Placer County Board of Supervisors.
Located at the northeast corner of Sierra College Boulevard and Eureka Road, the 20.55 acre housing project includes 28 detached, single-family residences on the eastern portion of the site and 44 attached residential “halfplex” units on the western portion.
As recommended to the board by the Placer County Planning Commission, supervisors adopted an ordinance to rezone the eastern parcel of the project site, which reduces lot sizes and increases the allowable density from 2 units per acre to 2.8 units per acre. The proposed zoning change is consistent with existing residential and commercial land uses and densities in the immediate area.
The board also approved a conditional use permit allowing a multi-family development on the western portion of the parcel and residential development on the eastern portion of the parcel.
“Under the Granite Bay Community Plan, the developer could have proposed 102 units, building as high as 50 feet,” said District 4 Supervisor Kirk Uhler. “Limiting the project to 72 units and only two stories high is a great compromise.”
