Information
SUBJECT:
Request for approval of a Final Plat Amendment to revise the no-build area on Lot 402 in Stone Canyon Neighborhood IIA, located at 1269 N. Tortolita Mountain Circle
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends approval.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
The purpose of this request is to consider a Final Plat Amendment to revise the no-build area on Lot 402 in Stone Canyon Neighborhood IIA, located at 1269 N. Tortolita Mountain Circle (Attachment 1). Per the Rancho Vistoso Planned Area Development, encroachment into no-build areas may be approved, without a land area trade, when the encroachment does not contain any protected environmental resources.

Historically, no-build areas were platted in Stone Canyon to protect environmental resources, such as rock outcrops and steep slopes. However, many of these areas were delineated using aerials with the understanding refinement in the field may occur on occasion. The proposed Final Plat Amendment (Attachment 2) is to revise the no-build area to gain approximately 1,674 square feet of buildable space.

Staff met with the applicant onsite and confirmed the proposed areas of encroachment do not contain any protected environmental resources (see Attachment 3). As such, staff recommends approvals finding the request is in compliance with the Rancho Vistoso Planned Area Development. 
BACKGROUND OR DETAILED INFORMATION:
Final Plat Amendments not considered minor as defined by the Zoning Code, require Town Council approval prior to being officially recorded with Pima County.

In 2006, the Final Plat for Stone Canyon Neighborhood IIA was approved and features several lots with no-build areas, which were established to protect environmental resources such as steep slopes and rock outcrops common in the area. Many of these areas were delineated using aerials with the understanding refinement in the field may occur on occasion.

Per the Rancho Vistoso Planned Area Development, encroachment into no-build areas may be approved, without a land area trade, when the encroachment does not contain any of the aforementioned protected environmental resources.

Staff met with the applicant onsite and confirmed the proposed areas of encroachment do not contain any protected environmental resources (see Attachment 3). As such, staff recommends approvals, finding the request is in compliance with the Rancho Vistoso Planned Area Development.
