Meadowood Estates Subdivision (also known as the Callan Subdivision)

Project Description

The town has received a Conceptual Plan application (which is the first step in the subdivision process) for an 8-lot subdivision for the future construction of individual homes on a 20-acre property at the north east corner Crystal Springs Road and Tartan Trail Road (assuming that Crystal Springs Road runs east/west) owned by the Callan Family Trust and presented by Brian Desler of Callan Realty Company.

A Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) has been prepared for the Meadowood Estates Subdivision project, more particularly described below, on lots 5,6,7 and 8 of Hillsborough Highlands (APN: 038-271-090, 038-110-160 and 038-121-160 (also known as the “Callan property”):
The project proposes to merge three existing parcels into a single parcel, then subdivide that single parcel into eight new parcels (lots) and construct two roads with infrastructure to serve future home construction that is anticipated but not part of this development plan. The project would include storm drainage, sanitary sewer, and water service improvements, plus electrical, cable, TV and other utilities, to serve future homes. All utilities would be constructed underground. The project would require grading of hillsides and introduction of retaining walls to conform existing slopes to a finished grade (or possible geofabric/geotextile hillside stabilization). About 100 trees would be removed initially for road/infrastructure construction, with another 222 to be removed for future home construction.

Environmental Issues

The project will require preparation of an Environmental Impact Report to address various environmental impacts including biological, traffic and transportation, geological, hydrological, visual and public services.
