In addition to assisting the City of Antioch with the review and processing of the project application, Raney prepared an EIR for 130 acre residential development project.
The proposed Cedar Flat Estates project is located in northeast Galt and consists of a 120-unit Planned Unit Development, gated subdivision with an associated 10-foot wide bicycle/pedestrian trail along an ephemeral drainage.
The proposed gated age-restricted community will include a total of 860 dwelling units, which includes 78 lofts. The project is proposed to include a range of residential products, including Independent Living buildings (three story), Villa Duplexes, detached Villas, and Assisted Living buildings.
The Curtis Park Village project included obtaining the appropriate entitlements for the infill development of approximately 250 single-family home sites, 310 multi-family housing units, approximately 50,000 square feet of first floor commercial uses with multi-family housing on upper floors, approximately 150,000 square feet of neighborhood-serving commercial uses, and five to six acres of park/open space.
The 19J Sustainable Communities Environmental Assessment (SCEA) project includes remove two existing commercial buildings totaling 9,780-square foot (sf), associated ancillary buildings, and concrete areas for the construction of a mixed use residential and commercial development.
The proposed Aspen 1 project includes a mixed use Planned Unit Development with a combination of multiple types of residential project and densities as well as a commercial center and commercial mixed use.
The proposed Johnson Rancho EIR project was primarily composed of three separate properties – the Johnson Rancho property, the Bear River Hop Farm property, and the Dave Browne property. Requested entitlements included annexation, General Plan amendment, and pre-zone.
The Eastview Specific Plan project consists of a mixed residential development, including parks, open space, schools, minor commercial and public facilities, and associated infrastructure on approximately 337 acres. Requested entitlements included Annexation, Pre-zoning, General Plan Amendment, Specific Plan Approval, Vesting Tentative Map(s), and creation of a Mello-Roos or other special financing district.
The Galt Walmart EIR project is another project that faced a great deal of public scrutiny, thus requiring extensive public facilitation on behalf of and in coordination with the City.
The Mace Ranch Innovation Center project consists of the proposed development of 2,654,000 square feet of research/office/R&D uses on a 212-acre agricultural site within unincorporated Yolo County, adjacent to the City of Davis city limits. The applicant is seeking to develop the project within the City of Davis; therefore, the project site would need to be annexed to the City.
The PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn project includes the demolition of the existing on-site hospitality structures (e.g., 60-room hotel and conference center) to construct a new, 61-room multi-level hotel, two residential condominium buildings totaling 34 units, and an underground parking garage.
