City of Paso Robles

Last month, the Paso Robles City Council approved a master-planned residential community development with 911 dwelling units, an 8.1-acre public park, 10.1 acres of green open space, trails, play areas, 10.2 acres of conservation area, and up to 47,000 square feet of mixed-use commercial. 

The Beechwood Owners Group is proposing the establishment of the Beechwood Specific Plan area, which would include over 234 acres currently owned by six different property owners. 

The 911 residential units would include single-family homes and multi-family units, ranging in density from 3 dwelling units per acre (du/ac) to 24 du/ac. The residential housing types include detached single-family homes, duplexes, triplexes, townhomes, and compact multiplexes. Affordable housing will be achieved through the presence of accessory dwelling units (ADUs).

The project envisions 3.8 acres of bicycle and pedestrian paths that connect the neighborhood to nearby amenities.

The Paso Robles Planning Commission identified four architectural styles that are appropriate for the residential buildings in the Specific Plan area: Craftsman, Farmhouse, Mediterranean and California Contemporary. 

The proposal included certification of the Final Environmental Impact Report, General Plan Amendments, Specific Plan Adoption, Oak Tree Removal Permit for the removal of 18 oak trees, and a Development Agreement.
