Creekwood Housing Development

Project Description

The dwelling at 280 Casa Grande would be demolished and the development site would be reconfigured into one parcel for a proposed 62-dwelling condominium project. The dwelling at 270 Casa Grande would remain, but the lot area for this dwelling would be reduced. To accommodate the development, the site would be regraded to create street improvements and elevated building pads for new dwellings, and new bio-retention/floodwater basins would connect to Adobe Creek on the adjacent City-owned parcel to the east (APN 017-041-042). The project also proposes to construct a pedestrian pathway adjacent to Adobe Creek to connect to the Casa Grande Subdivision that abuts the site to the south, and, potentially in the future, connect to the Casa Grande Senior Apartments to the north. The proposed pedestrian pathway would also connect to a new pedestrian bridge (also located on the City-owned parcel to the east) over Adobe Creek that would connect this site and the residential areas west of Adobe Creek with the existing pathways and residential areas to the east on Spyglass Road. Vehicular, emergency, and pedestrian access would be provided from Casa Grande Road via a new private street. All new dwellings would be sold as condominiums.

Senate Bill SB-330

This is the first development proposal presented to Petaluma that is subject to SB-330, “The Housing Crisis Act of 2019”. According to the State of California, SB-330 aims to increase certainty in the development process for applicants and housing advocates, speed the review of new Housing Development Projects, preserve existing affordable housing, and prevent certain zoning actions that reduce the availability of housing. In February 2021, Planning Staff made a presentation to the Planning Commission on SB-330, and the Planning Commission staff report provides useful background related to SB-330, and its effect on City processes:
