4.9 Development Plan
Design Review for the project will occur at three (3) levels. First, the Master Developer will review all applications for development by Neighborhood Builder(s)/Developer(s) in accordance with the Master Developer Design Review process. Following review and approval by the Master Developer of individual applications, application will be made to the City of Santa Paula. Finally, the applicable HOA will review any homeowner landscaping, fencing or signage applications requiring its approval.
Before the City issues any residential, commercial or institutional building permits for any specific phase, a Development Plan must be approved for such development.
The primary purpose of the Design Review, as set forth in SPMC Chapter 16.226, is to determine that individual tracts are being developed in a manner that conforms with the goals and standards specified by this Specific Plan and to ensure compatibility with all appropriate City regulations. The Design Review Committee has the authority to approve, amend or deny development plans within the intent of the development standards of this Specific Plan.
The Committee will meet to review development plans within fifteen business days after a complete application is provided for review. Decisions of the Committee may be appealed to the Planning Commission within 15 business days after the Committee determination. The Planning Commission, within 40 days of reviewing said appeal, can affirm, reverse, or modify the decision of the Development Plan Review Committee. The Planning Commission decision may be appealed to the City Council by following the same procedure set forth above for appeal to the Planning Commission.
