Agenda Item #1 – Orchard Hills

Located at the northern most section of Neighborhood 3, north of Ridge Gate / New Point. The Irvine Company requests approval for the development of 124 detached single-family homes in neighborhood 3 of Orchard Hills.  All units are two stories with three or four bedrooms. There are three different floor plan types ranging in size from 1,897 to 2,774 square feet. All required resident parking is provided within two-car garages. Orchard Hills is allocated a total of 4,385 units in the Zoning Ordinance.



Agenda Item #2 – Orange Tree Square Retail Center

Located at the corner of Walnut Avenue and Jeffrey Road. Pacific Design Group on behalf of the property owner is requesting approval for the demolition of the existing gas station and for the construction of a new retail building. There will be no increase in square footage at the center as a result of this project. The property owner has not decided what tenant will go into that space, but a restaurant would be a permitted use there. The traffic review considered a restaurant, as that would be the highest intensity use related to vehicular travel. As part of the project, a number of street and access improvements are proposed.



Agenda Item #3 – Montessori Child Care Center

Located at 1 Doppler. Adaptive Architecture, on behalf of Little Tree Montessori, seeks approval to establish a Montessori Child care center for up to 288 children, aged 2 to 6 years, with up to 28 staff.  It will provide a much needed service to both the commercial and residential development in the area.
