Forest Green Estates-Project Details
Existing Land Area
- Property Size: 81.1 acres
- Number of Trees on site: 1920
- Creeks: One watercourse, La Colina Creek, bisects the site; several
channels are tributary. The developer maintains that the main watercourse will
remain in its current state. The future status of the tributaries is much more
- Wildlife: Scrub jay, steller's jay, turkey vulture, wild turkey, red-tailed
hawk, black-capped chickadee, bushtit, button's vireo, tufted
titmouse, hummingbird, and woodpecker.
- Steepness: The site topography rises in a southerly direction, away
from the existing residential neighborhood at approximately 180 feet
above sea level toward the Regional Park at 430 feet. The landform
is variable, mostly gently sloping (flatter than 4:1) in the central part
of the site. Localized areas adjacent to the gullies and shallow
canyons are steeper than 15:1.
- Existing General Plan designation: Very Low Density Residential
(0-5 DU/acre), and Preservation Resource Area (above 400'
- Existing zoning designation: SFR-2, Single Family Very Low
Residential District (minimum lot size 6,000 sq. ft.), CRR,
Community and Regional Recreation District (above 400' elevation)
- Estimated Number of Homes to be built: 120
- Largest lot: 107,500 sq. ft.
- Smallest lot: 6,000 sq. ft.
- Average lot size: 12,763 sq. ft.
- Net Residential Development Area: 34.57 acres
- Common Open Space: 40.85 acres
- Amount of grading: 145,000 cubic yards
(Cut and fill balanced on-site, no off haul, no importation)
- Number of Trees to be removed: 132
- Number of Replacement Trees: 411
- Soil stabilization techniques: Deep buttress shear key, ranging in
depth from 40 to 60 feet on the downhill side and 40 to 50 feet wide
at the base, will be constructed on the uphill side of the buttress.
A series of inclined tie-backs will be placed underground between the western
property line and Road "A". Deep shaft/horizontal tube drains will be used to
dewater the southern portion of the site.
- Site drainage techniques: Four detention basins and seven water
quality basins will be used to detain and filter surface water runoff.
Peak discharge will not exceed the predevelopment condition.
- Entryway design:
- Clark Road will be the primary entrance (monument sign wall, no
- Wesley Way will be secondary entrance (landscaped).
- La Colina will be an Emergency Vehicle Access, existing gate
relocated 90 degrees, landscaped.
- Off-site improvements: Slope stability mitigation work at the top of
La Colina, between the Regional Park and the first houses.
- Amenities: 4.4 ac. park, pedestrian path system, 30 acres of accessible open space.
