Other components of the West Coyote Hills Specific Plan include a 17.1-acre multiple use site, a 5.2-acre neighborhood commercial development area, and open space recreational amenities on 282.9 acres. In addition, a 1.3-acre fire station site, which has been developed with a new fire station, is included as a component of the proposed project.

Ward Nature Preserve, including a small parking area, restrooms and interpretive center, creation of a low fuel zone around the area, a trail maintenance program, interpretive signage along existing paths, and some coastal sage scrub restoration in disturbed areas. Project implementation requires the approval of a general plan amendment, zone change, specific plan amendment, subdivision map, and development agreement.
