Carmel Valley planning board OKs new subdivision plan for Worsch Way

By Karen Billing

The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board Sept. 27 unanimously recommended city approval of a plan for a new 11-lot subdivision on Worsch Way.

Developer Gary Levitt went through an extensive process with the regional issues subcommittee earlier in the year, abandoning his original plan to have eight “green” homes on the hill because there was too much resistance from the neighbors.

“We had the idea of doing something different,” said Levitt. “The neighbors really felt we were approaching it wrong. They felt very strongly about doing something that fitted into the existing community.”

Levitt says his plan now fits the community just right, grading the hill down and having a “straight subdivision” of 11 homes at street level. The lots will range in size from 4,789 square feet to 7,967 square feet off Worsch Drive and Del Mar Trails.

Neighbors in attendance were very happy with the plan and expressed gratitude that Levitt listened to their concerns.

One neighbor preferred his original plan.

“I’m really disappointed,” said neighbor Karen Cody. “I think we could’ve ended up with a jewel rather than just the same of everything.”
