CITY OF BELMONT
NOTICE OF POSTPONED PUBLIC HEARING
This notice is to inform you that the proposed Monte Cresta Drive Hillside Road Improvement Plan has been POSTPONED and will not be scheduled for the April 17, 2012 Planning Commission meeting.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION - Monte Cresta Drive Hillside Road Improvement Plan
The applicant is proposing an approximately 104-foot-long, two-lane extension of Monte Cresta Drive from its existing terminus approximately 1,000 feet northwest of Barclay Way, below (west of) All View Way in the San Juan Hills area of the City of Belmont. The site is currently an unimproved roadway/pathway primarily used by local residents as an open-space recreational trail. The roadway extension has been designed to comply with the design standards of the Cityís Hillside Road Standards Ė San Juan Hills, as specified in Section 7-13 of the City Municipal Code, Items (e) 4 through 9, as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act. The roadway would be a total of 38 feet in width, including two 10-foot wide travel lanes, two 5.5-foot-wide parking lanes, two 2-foot-wide curb and gutters, and one four-foot-wide sidewalk. A two-foot wide planter strip would be included on the east side of the new roadway.
The roadway extension would be supported/protected by retaining walls within the road right of way on both sides, which will require approval of an Encroachment Permit from the Belmont City Council. The retaining wall below the road would range from one-to-four feet in height and the wall above the road would range from eight-to-nine feet in height. The project also would include access to three potential driveways, street lighting, as well as underground extensions of water, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, gas, and electric utility lines. Construction of the roadway would occur over a period of about three months. Details of the proposed roadway extension are indicated on Figures 2 and 3 of the Draft Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration.
The roadway would provide access to three currently inaccessible residentially designated lots just west of the existing western terminus of Monte Cresta Drive (APNís 043-243-340, 043-165-170 and 043-165-180. Should the Hillside Roadway Improvement plan be approved, subsequently two of those lots (west of the proposed new roadway) could then potentially be developed with small houses (limited to 900 sq, ft. each, including garages) while the lot northeast of the proposed extension could be potentially developed with an up-to 3,000 sq. ft. house.
This Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration and Hillside Roadway Improvement Plan will be scheduled for Planning Commission consideration at a date yet to be determined.
