Lot size too small

A group of concerned neighbors is trying to block the Lennar Homes application for a Planned District on the Hirsch property overlooking Sabercat Historical Park in Mission San Jose.

The property is currently zoned as R-1-8 (residential, single-family, 8,000 sq. ft. minimum lots.) The Planned District will have 33 houses, most of which will be on 50 ft. wide lots of less than 6,000 sq. ft.

The neighborhoods east & west are zoned R-1-10 (10,000 sq. ft. min.) The Planned District is being generally based on R-1-6 standards (6,000 sq. ft. min.) and yet it fails to meet seven of the nine R-1-6 zoning requirements.

The plan creates a new narrow cul-de-sac with no sidewalk or parking along the south side. Over 300 vehicle-trips PER DAY will be added to the Castillejo Road or Via Orinda outlets.

Please help us by attending the Fremont Planning Commission meeting on Jan. 10th at 7 p.m. at the City Hall Council Chambers.
