Project Description

The project is a request for the approval of Tentative Parcel Map to subdivide one 66,645 sq. ft. parcel into the following four parcels:

  • Parcel 1          19,305 net sq. ft.

  • Parcel 2           17,947 net sq. ft.

  • Parcel 3           16,980 net sq. ft.

  • Parcel 4           12,415 net sq. ft.

Parcel 4 will be accessed from Main Street via a 20 foot wide access easement. The remaining three parcels will be accessed from Shaw Street via a proposed 24 foot wide access easement. Secondary egress will be allowed onto Main Street for Parcels 1, 2, and 3. Ingress from Main Street to Parcels 1, 2, and 3 will be limited to emergency vehicles by a future access gate. Shaw Street will be widened to 24 feet between the east and west property lines of Parcel 1. Grading required for future access and utility improvements will include an estimated 650 cubic yards of cut and 550 cubic yards of fill. Approximately fourteen (14) trees will need to be removed to accommodate the widening of Shaw Street and installation of a future driveway and utilities. These physical improvements will require the approval of additional permit. The proposed subdivision will be served by the Los Alamos Community Services District (LACSD) and the County Fire Department.

Existing structural development on the property includes a single-family residence, garage, outdoor kitchen, barn, water tower base, windmill, accessory dwelling unit (ADU), covered patio, and shed. The existing garage, shed, and covered patio will be demolished to accommodate proposed access and utility easements. All other structures will remain. After the subdivision, Parcel 4 will contain the existing residence, outdoor kitchen, and barn.  Parcel 3 will contain the existing water tower base, windmill, and ADU. Parcels I and 2 will remain vacant. The separation of the ADU onto a separate parcel than the existing primary residence will make it the primary dwelling unit on Parcel 3 at the time of recordation.
