Description:    Design Review and Tentative Map for 27-unit townhouse complex on Parcel 2 of the North Village. The project consists of three separate buildings, each of which contains 9 townhomes with attached two-car garages. The townhomes will be marketed as middle-income for-sale units that are affordable to households earning up to 160% of the area median income. The Tentative Map application (TM 2022-06) seeks to establish 27 airspace condominium units and a common parcel providing circulation, open space, a courtyard with seating, a BBQ center and a pet activity area.  


Location:            201 Dovetail Lane (Parcel 2 of North Village Project)


Applicant:           Comstock Healdsburg, LLC



Determination:   On May 20, 2019, the Healdsburg City Council certified the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the North Entry Area Plan (SCH# 2018062041) and adopted related findings, a Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program, and a Statement of Overriding Considerations. An Environmental Checklist & Addendum to the FEIR were prepared for the North Village Project (MCUP 2019-04) approved by the Planning Commission on February 11, 2020; and the Development Agreement for the North Village Project (DA 2020-01) adopted by the City Council on April 6, 2020. In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines Section 15183, further environmental review is not required because the project components under consideration would not result in on-site, off-site or cumulatively significant effects on the environment that were not examined in the FEIR.
