Present Land Use
FS,CC,HDR, and COS and ROS: Zoning:SP/C-2(PD), SP/R-3(PD), and SP/OS(PD)
Document Description
The project would include amending a portion of the City of Santa Maria 1994 Rivergate Roemer Specific Plan. The project would require amendment to the City of Santa Maria General Plan (Land Use Policy and Circulation Plan) maps and Zoning Map, but would retain the existing Planning Development (PD) Overlay on the property. The proposed changes would result in the majority of the project site (29.5 acres) zoned C-2 with the PD Overlay. The project, as proposed, is intended to facilitate the future construction of up to 400,000 square feet of retail commercial uses on the project site with no residential component. The project would maintain approx. eight acres of open space reserved for the future dedication of the U.S. 101/ Broadway-Highway 135 interchange looped ramps and extension of Seaward Drive.
