2. The 31.24± acre project is located at 3410 77th Street West.  The 0.2 acres located west of Palma Sola Boulevard is in the RES-6 (Residential – 6 dwelling units per acre) and the remaining property is located in the RES-16 (Residential – 16 dwelling units per acre) Future Land Use Categories. RES-16 allows consideration of suburban or urban residential uses; the project gross density is 6.63 du/ac and the net density is 10.94 du/ac.

3. Special Approvals:  Partially located within the Coastal High Hazard Area and a Perennial Stream (Palma Sola Creek).  These Special Approvals were approved with the previous application and the proposed revisions do not affect staff support of  these Special Approval requests.

4. The project provides 12.12 acres of open space (38.8%); exceeding the requirements of the Planned Development District.

5. Project access is from 75th Street West and an emergency and proposed construction access on Palma Sola Boulevard.
