December MAC Meeting Summary

Supervisor Report:

Bayside Fields:
The MAC members will receive an informational presentation on Bayside Fields, a proposal to develop recreation uses on a 17.3 acre area on the existing 34.6 acre Bayside Church Granite Bay Property (APN 048-030-083-000, 046-090-042-000). Current approvals allow for recreation uses associated with church activities, but do not allow for organized tournaments and events or regular league use. The applicant is requesting approval from the Planning Commission of a Conditional Use Permit Modification to allow for regular league and tournament use. The parcel is located approximately one-half mile north of Douglas Boulevard between Sierra College Boulevard and Cavitt Stallman Road. The site is designated as Rural Estates (RE 4.6-20 acre minimum) in the Granite Bay Community Plan and is zoned F-B-X-20 Acre Minimum (Farm, 20-acre minimum). Proposed uses include a field area for three to five soccer fields, children’s play area, picnic area, concession/restroom building, storage building, and parking. Approximately 5.7 acres of the 17.3-acre site would be used for passive recreation.
Presenter: Kris Steward, on behalf of Bayside Church
