Project Description

Request for: 

  1. A General Plan Amendment to change land use designations from Limited Commercial, Traffic Sensitive, and Urban Residential, 5 units per acre, to Limited Commercial and Urban Residential, 12 units per acre; 
  2. A Zone Change from Limited Commercial (LC) Traffic Sensitive (TS) and Low Density Residential (R1), to Planned Community (PC); 
  3. A Major Subdivision to create 11 parcels;
  4. Preliminary and Precise Development Plan for Planned Community Zoning;
  5. Design Review; and
  6. A Sign Program. 


The proposed project would redevelop an existing mixed-use development at 12 Calle Del Monte, that currently includes the Boyes Food Center and several detached cottages. The project would increase the total number of housing units from 12 to 37 and increase the amount of commercial space on the site from 3,000 to 7,000 square feet. The project would include eight new townhomes distributed between two new buildings and 29 for-rent dwelling units distributed between the existing Boyes Food Center building and a new mixed-use building. The project includes a request for a general plan amendment, zone change, preliminary and precise development plan, design review, and sign program. The Permit Sonoma file number is PLP18-0013.
