The son and daughter-in-law of the late state Senator John A. Nejedly have applied to Walnut Creek's zoning administator to subdivide the political patriarch's 13-acre grass- and oak-covered property into four parcels for the development of three new homes.
Their request will be considered at the Zoning Administrator's meeting next Wednesday.
Nejedly purchased the property in 1951 (not far from where I grew up and now live). Senator Nejedly, in his trust, sought to maintain the rural nature of the land; he also wanted to repay his his son, James, and James' wife, Jaine, for taking care of the estate as he was ailing.
The couple are now moving forward with plans that seem headed for approval. According to a staff report prepared by Zoning Administrator Andrew Smith, the proposed subdivision, together with its design and improvements, is consisent with the General Plan and single-family zoning policies for that area. The community development director also found that the project would cause no substantial adverse environmental impacts.
