The property is subject to the "Foothill/Trabuco Specific Plan" (FTSP) which was crafted to preserve the character of the canyons; the FTSP limits the uses of the property but ensures that the canyon areas will be developed responsibly and stay beautiful for generations to come.
Development of three (3) dwelling units is allowed per the FTSP, subject to satisfying the other requirements of the FTSP.
"The purpose of the Specific Plan effort was to set forth goals, policies, land use district regulations, development guidelines, and implementation programs in order to preserve the area’s rural character and to guide future development in the Foothill/Trabuco area."1
"The Foothill/Trabuco Specific Planning Area encompasses approximately 6,500 acres located within the foothills of the Santa Ana Mountains. The area is bounded on the north by the Silverado/Modjeska Specific Plan Area and the Cleveland National Forest; to the south by the Rancho Trabuco, Rancho Santa Margarita and Robinson Ranch Planned Communities; to the east by the Cleveland National Forest; and to the west by the Santiago Rancho project and the Foothill Ranch and Portola Hills Planned Communities. The Foothill/Trabuco area contains abundant natural and scenic resources, including oak woodlands, ridge lines, stream courses and the backdrop of mountainous terrain within and adjacent to the Cleveland National Forest."2
"The Trabuco Canyon Planning Area is located in the interior of the Specific Plan Area. All properties within the planning area, with the exception of the properties on the south side of Trabuco Creek, are dependent on access to Live Oak/Trabuco Canyon Road. The planning area is bounded on the north by the Silverado/Modjeska Specific Plan Area, on the east by the Cleveland National Forest and on the south by the Plano Trabuco Planning Area. The planning area includes O'Neill Regional Park and portions of the Cleveland National Forest.
The planning area consists of major and minor ridgelines with intervening wooded canyons. The majority of existing development with in the Specific Plan Area is located within this planning area along Trabuco Oaks Drive and Mountain View Road. Development potential is most limited within this planning area due to the abundance of significant natural landforms and biological resources, the limited traffic capacity of Live Oak Canyon/Trabuco Canyon Road, and the lack of public sanitary sewers and sewage treatment capacity."3
