Reliez Terraces Residential Subdivision

Apr 03, 2017 08:51PM ● By Jennifer Neys

On February 28, a study session was held by the planning commission to review and provide preliminary feedback on a proposal from Mt. Diablo View Associates, LLC, for a 17-lot, single-family residential subdivision proposed for the former Molino property at 2150 and 2198 Pleasant Hill Road. The project site is approximately 4.42 acres, and the proposed subdivision would have lots ranging in size from 8,171 square feet to 17,549 square feet. The project is anticipated to be a Planned Unit Development (PUD) to facilitate clustering and allow for lots smaller than 10,000 sq. ft.; however, it will be required to comply with the general plan density range of 3.1 to 4.5 units per net acre for the single-family, medium density land use designation. The project will include new private streets, landscape areas, and frontage improvements.

The site was owned by the Molino family and included two residences with a ravioli business, which operated out of the main home for many years. In 2016, the current property owner obtained city approval to demolish both existing structures. Additional general plan goals, policies, and programs will be reviewed in greater detail in the subsequent planning permit review process. The site is also noted in the housing element as a housing opportunity site, with the potential for at least one unit for moderate income households and at least three or more market rate units.
