Document Description
The Northwest Specific Plan (NWSP) provides the vision for creating a balanced community composed of public facilities, open space, and residential neighborhoods within an overall 354-acre planning area. The plan provides guidance for the development of up to 830 single and multiple-family residential units emphasizing affordable housing opportunities, accommodation of important public facilities, and preservation of open space amenities. The Plan integrates open space, public trails, and wildlife habitat enhancement amenities with the development of a community park, a house of worship, an educational use facility, and five residential neighborhoods with densities ranging from 1.5 units per acre, to just over 40 units per acre. Overall, the Plan furthers a wide range of General Plan policies, including preserving at least 75% of the site area for public amenities and open space uses. The Faria Preserve Community is a combination of community facilities, 786 residential units, and substantial protected open spaces proposed within the Northwest Specific Plan Area. The Faria Preserve Community comprises the majority of the Northwest Specific Plan Area and implements the various amenities, objectives, and goals set forth in the NWSP, including those identified above.
