Proposed Land Use Plan and Land Use Summary


The proposed Lime Rock Valley Specific Plan provides for the development of 426 (57%) of the property's 740 acres.  The 426 developed acres are comprised of 34 acres of roadways and facilities and 392 acres of home sites and community parks.  42% of the developed area will be large estate-type lots, 1 to 5 acres in size.  These estate lots will be located at the perimeter of the property to create a sense of continuity with surrounding developments where 5-acre lots are common.  58% of the developed area will be low density housing, with lots ranging from 1/5 to 1/2 acre in size.  All of the development will be low-density residential, with a gross density of 1.08 homes per acre.


The proposed Lime Rock Valley Specific Plan preserves 314 acres (43%) of the property as public and private open space.  This allows many of the natural characteristic of the property to be maintained and protects the rural feel of El Dorado County.
