An Ordinance of the City of Delano Adopting a Development Agreement between the City of Delano and County Line Farms, L.P. The proposed Development Agreement would be in conjunction with the development of Tentative Tract Map 6570 which proposes to subdivide approximately 320 acres into 1,228 single family residential lots, four neighborhood park sites totaling 13.5 acres in size, a school site, two drill island sites and a temporary storm water retention basin. Should the proposed school site, drill island sites and retention basin sites not be developed, these area are proposed to contain a potential additional 80 single family residential lots, for a total of 1,308 lots within the tentative tract map. The property is generally located north of Cecil Avenue, west of Hiett Avenue, south of County Line Road, and east of Mettler Avenue within the northwestern portion of the City of Delano. The property is zoned R-1 (Single Family Residential Zone District) and includes Assessor Parcel Nos. 520-010-03, 520-010-16 and 520-010-18.
In summary of the Agreement: the Development Agreement would have a 15 year life. The agreement would allow modification of certain zoning standards, including but not limited to front yard setbacks, lot size, and minimum house size. The Agreement would further allow for development impact fees to be held in place for a set number of residential units or five year increments whichever occurs first. With the approval of the Development Agreement, with certain exceptions, the project would not be subject to additional changes to the City of Delano codes.

The Community Development Department of the City of Delano has prepared a Mitigated Negative Declaration and related Mitigation Monitoring addressing potential environmental impacts associated with the project.
