|Zoning administrator Peter Gilli recommended last week that the City Council approve a new master plan for Mayfield that increases park space by a half acre and reduces building heights to three stories along Whitney Drive and parts of Mayfield Avenue.
The city is buying .39 acres of park space to add to what was a one-acre park near Diablo Avenue. It will bring the project's total park space, in two parks, to 3.53 acres on the 26-acre site.
Gilli also recommended developer Toll Brothers' detailed plan for its first phase, area one, which is 42 single-family homes adjacent to the existing neighborhood. The company proposes to start a year long demolition process in June 2008, after detailed plans for areas two, three and four come before the council next year. The master plan is set for a council hearing in December.
The project at 100 Mayfield Ave. calls for a total of 450 homes in Mountain View and another 45 on the Palo Alto side.
