Council agrees to development project changes

By From page A9 | March 12, 2014

VACAVILLE  — City Council members gave the unanimous go-ahead Tuesday to move forward with changes for three development projects located in or near the southeast corner of Vacaville.

Council members asked a couple of quick questions about traffic patterns during construction and zoning changes before the area is annexed into the city, but agreed to the changes that involved multiple resolutions and ordinances for the areas known as Southtown and Vanden Meadows.

In part, the changes involved General Plan amendments and zoning issues. Two of the zoning changes are pre-zoning alterations because the property isn’t yet annexed into the city.

An 11-acre parcel will move from an agricultural designation to a residential low-medium density and an 8-acre parcel will be rezoned from a controversial 192-unit apartment site with a high-density label to a low-density residential area for 32 proposed homes.

The third project change involved the Southtown 1A development, which calls for 141 single-family homes. The change for the 33 acres is from residential low-density to residential low-medium density. Lot size would change from a 5,000-square-foot minimum to a 4,500-square-foot minimum.

    Was there any comments about the traffic this will cause. Probably not, fees come before quality of life of south town citizens.

    But I'm sure they'll build a new fire station over there... to park their Cadillac plan in.
