Mountainside
The Mountainside project is a 16 unit townhome development located at 413 Rainbow Lane, east of Canyon Lodge. Two of the units would be freestanding single family homes and 14 units would be within 7 duplex buildings. All units would be 3 stories with 3 bedrooms and a 2-car garage. The project consists of a tentative tract map, variance, use permit, design review, and adjustment.

A variance is requested to reduce the 25-foot setback along Rainbow Lane to 16 feet and to increase building height from 35 feet to up to 43.9 feet for certain buildings. An Alternate Housing Mitigation Plan (AHMP) is proposed to pay fees in-lieu of providing an on-site housing unit.
