You are right as to the lot size. I should have been more precise in stating that they could get the permits to build single family homes like those in the La Merced and Racquet Mountain areas on the larger lots (if they would sell the land) today as opposed to their high density condominium housing proposal.Cook-Hill could get permits TODAY to build single family homes (like those in the La Merced or Racquet Mountain areas)in the Hills, if they wanted to.
Actually I disagree.
PXP/ Montebello Land Company, Cook Hill do not plan on R1 single family dwellings which have to be on lots at least 6,000 sq ft.
They cannot build multiple dwellings on one big project size lot and only provide "air rights" and no titles to individual properties.
They would have to have R-3 zoning or a Planed Unit Development which is what they are going for with their (un) "specific plan".
They would have to have a condo association
Condominium land ownership is incompatible with the current R1 zoning.
Without selling lots there is no project possible without rezoning.
The Citizens of Montebello would refenderize any attempt at ticky tacky Condo zoning in the hills
I was thinking of the big picture. Thanks for the admonishment.
