San Juan Bautista Standard Plans


Copperleaf Residential Development

The 12.52- acre Project is located on the north side of Old San Juan Hollister Road, about 300 feet east of the intersection with The Alameda/Salinas Grade Road, in the City of San Juan Bautista, California. State Highway 156 is adjacent to the Project’s northern boundary. There are two entrances to the Project from the Old San Juan Hollister Road. No site access will be available from State Highway 156.

The Copperleaf residential development will consist of 45 new single family residences and with an open space area that includes a drainage retention pond (Lot A). An existing municipal well will be relocated to the southeast corner of the site (Lot B). The homes will meet City R-1 zoning standards that include: minimum lot area (gross) – 7,000 square feet; density range of 0.50 to 5 dwelling units per acre; and building coverage of 40 percent and a floor to area ratio (FAR) of 0.45. In addition, the Project will include curbs, gutter, sidewalks, street trees, landscaping, and street lighting that will complement the other residential neighborhoods in the City. A masonry sound wall (height varies upon location) will be constructed along the Project’s northern boundary with SH 156. A public sidewalk will be provided along Old San Juan Hollister Road.
