Community

The previously approved project had 876 bedrooms across 292 structures, while the proposed project has 645 bedrooms across 10 structures.

Transportation

The previously approved project was entirely residential thus traffic would be generated for employment.

This project is a live/work campus thus traffic is greatly reduced with traffic limited to off peak times.

Public visits will be ‘booked’ in advance with the neighboring facility in Orange County so as to not create any additional ‘trips’.

Bridge Restoration

Rather than replace this existing stone-clad bridge, it is being restored to form part of the infrastructure of the proposed project.

Ridge Line

101 feet lower and 60 feet higher than previous project

The previous development required the clearing of forest at the ridge line; the highest part of the site. The highest buildings in this project are 101 feet lower than the previously approved project and begin at an elevation 60 feet higher.
