El Camino Real home approved amid neighbor concerns

By Karen Billing

The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board approved a proposed private residence on El Camino Real with 10-1-3 vote, despite some push back from the home’s future neighbors. The single family home is planned for a parcel on El Camino Real past between Derby Downs Road and Sea Country Lane.

The 2,400-square-foot home will be on a 4,129-square-foot lot.

Rodney Hunt was the one board member to vote against the proposal and three board members abstained.

Neighbors expressed concerns that it is not a safe ingress/egress for a home. “El Camino Real is a speedway, it’s a very unsafe place to stick a house,” one neighbor said.

The planning board also received several letters in opposition to the project, with concerns that the .09-acre lot was even developable.

Manjeet Ranu, planning board co-chair, said the city determined that the property is a “lawful lot” and that the applicant has complied with all city traffic engineer suggestions. Many of the board members were complimentary of applicant Steven Ott’s design and plan.

The plan will next go to a city hearing and notice will be given to neighbors within 300 feet. Neighbors in attendance said they plan to fight the development all the way.
