Tokay Development Co. plans to build the subdivision just north of Windwood Drive toward the Mokelumne River. The San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors approved a rezone last year to pave the way for the subdivision. Now the county Planning Commission will review the development map at a meeting Thursday.

Settlement details

Among the conditions Tokay Development faces:
• The new subdivision will not be gated.
• Benedict, Riverwood and Windwood drives must be swept and cleaned daily of construction materials and dust. Construction vehicles can drive no faster than 15 mph.
• Any sewer plant upgrades to accommodate the subdivision must be paid by the developer.
• Security guards must watch the area at night.
• Construction offices, trailers and porta-potties must be located in the northernmost area of the property, away from existing residents.
• Construction is limited from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays.
• No radios will be allowed at the construction site.
Additionally, the Woodbridge Sanitary District must monitor any odors wafting from its sewer plant north of Benedict Drive and adjacent to the luxury subdivision.
Tokay Development has three other identified expenses, according to the settlement - $20,000 to the Law Office of William Yeates, who represents the Woodbridge residents, $3,000 per acre to the San Joaquin County Valley Land Trust and $1,500 per acre for the county Multi-Species Habitat Conservation and Open Space Plan.
