July 13, 2016 (Spring Valley) – The proposed Sweetwater Place  residential project in Spring Valley will be considered  Friday by the County Planning Commission. This project has twice been rejected by the Spring Valley Community Planning Group.

The meeting begins at 9 a.m. at the County’s conference center hearing room at 5520 Overland Ave. in San Diego. Public testimony and participation are encouraged.

The applicant seeks a General Plan Amendment , rezoning and a tentative map and site plan to build 122 condominiums and a two-acre public park on an 18-acre property. The project includes a trail along Jamacha Boulevard that connects to new park and a new bus stop on Jamacha Boulevard.

The site was originally slated for State Highway 54 (SR-54) extension, but Caltrans has since abandoned the SR-54 extension project and sold the property. The proposed main access would be from  Jamacha Boulevard at the existing Folex Way intersection. Secondary access is  proposed off of Sweetwater Springs Boulevard and would also provide access to the park.

The site currently is subject to the  General Plan Land Use Designation of Public/Semi-Public and is proposed to change  to Village (VR-7.3).

The current Zoning for the site is Holding Area (S90) and is proposed to change to Variable Residential (RV).

A   Tentative Map is to subdivide the   property into two lots; one for the park and one for the 122 condominiums.A Site Plan is also included to demonstrate conformance to the Spring Valley Design Guidelines and the Special Study section in the Spring Valley Community Plan and to establish the exterior setbacks.The project site is located on the north side of Jamacha Boulevard (SR-54) at Sweetwater Springs Boulevard, in the Spring ValleyCommunity Plan Area, within unincorporated San Diego County (APN 505-231-36)
