April 8, 2024 ALUC Action Summary

Action:  Review and approve, or approve with edits, the April 8, 2024 Fresno County Airport Land Use Commission Action Summary.

City of Fresno Plan Amendment/Rezone and Planned Development Permit (Brenda Thomas) [ACTION]

Summary: The City of Fresno received a Vesting Tentative Tract Map from a representative of Wilson Homes pertaining to approximately 28.6 acres of property located at the northeast corner of the East McKinley Avenue Alignment and North Armstrong Avenue. The project proposes the development of 326 single-family residential lots within a gated subdivision with private streets.

The City of Fresno's Plan Amendment/Rezone Application No. P22-00388 is proposing to amend the Fresno General Plan from the Low Density Residential (1-3.5 Dwelling Units Per Acre) land use to Medium Density Residential (5-12 Dwelling Units Per Acre), and the Official Zone Map from the RS-3 (Single Family Residential, Low Density) zone districts to the RS-5 (Single Family Residential, Medium Density) zone district. The proposed project would be developed at approximately 11.4 dwelling units per acre, and is consistent with uses allowed within this zoning district.

Planned Development Permit P22-00387 proposes a private gated subdivision with modified development standards, private streets, and open space/recreational facilities within the community. The maximum permitted building height in the RS-5 zone district is 35 feet, and the proposed planned development does not propose to modify the maximum height limit within the subdivision. An Environmental Impact Report is being prepared for the project.

The subject property is located within the Fresno Yosemite International Traffic Pattern Zone which has no limits on dwelling units per acre. The only prohibited use for residential projects is hazards to flight which is defined as:

  • Physical (e.g.,tallobjects), visual, and electronic forms of interference with the safety of aircraft operations
  • Land use development, such as golf courses and certain types of crops, as outlined in FAA’s Advisory Circular 150/5200?33B
  • Hazardous Wildlife Attractants on or Near Airports, that may cause the attraction of birds to increase is also prohibited
The open land requirement is 10%. Open land requirements are intended to be applied with respect to an entire zone. This is typically accomplished as part of a community general plan or a specific plan but may also apply to large (10 acres or more) development projects.
The subject property does not sit within Fresno Yosemite International Airport's noise contours. An airport disclosure notice is required.

Action: ALUC staff recommends that the Fresno County Airport Land Use Commission approve a Finding of Consistency for Plan Amendment/Rezone Application No. P22-00388 and Planned Development Permit P22-00387.
