The project site is approximately 5 acres and is located within the Orcutt Community Plan (OCP), identified as "Key Site 18/Southpoint" (KS18). The OASIS property is comprised of two APNs (105-020-063, -064), which together are one legal lot. The OASIS property is part of an approximately 33-acre common open space lot (Lot 165) of the original Southpoint Estates subdivision.

Background

The OASIS property is part of the original open space for the Southpoint Estates residential subdivision and rezone approved in 1979, Tract Map TM 12,679/Rezone Ordinance No. 3106 (79-EIR-1). The last three of five recorded units of the Southpoint Estates project were processed under a subsequent tentative map, TM 13,345 (82-EIR-18). Most of the area now referred to as OCP Key Site 18 was designated for open space and non-commercial recreational use as part of the Southpoint Estates project approvals. More information regarding the property permit history is publicly available on County microfiche and in the current project file.
