Sandy Lane development in Carmel Valley approved

The board approved the 10-home Sandy Lane development with a 12-1 vote. The new development is planned for south of Highway 56, along Rancho Santa Fe Farms Road.

Mark Perlman, of the Marker Company, came back to the board with changes requested at a previous meeting: They added a small pocket park to give children a place to play and removed a perimeter wall, in the spirit of Pacific Highlands Ranch’s goal to avoid closed loop subdivisions.

The development will have four floor plans, no parking in the interior streets and some homes will have frontage on Rancho Santa Fe Farms Road for a more open feel.

Board Vice Chair Manjeet Ranu made it a condition of the board’s approval to use more inviting materials than asphalt on the community’s interior streets, such as pavers or scoured colored concrete. Perlman said they would work something into the plan — they avoided using pavers to make it easier for kids to ride on with their skateboards or scooters.

The sole vote against the project was member David Bartick, who didn’t like the fact that the project doesn’t have interior parking, forcing visitors to park on the street.
