Document Description
The 3,766 +/- acre Florin-Vineyard Gap Community Plan project, which is included within the boundaries of the existing South Sacramento and Vineyard Community Plan areas, is generally located as follows: south of Elder Creek Road and Sacramento City limits; west of Bradshaw Road, excluding North Vineyard Station Specific Plan area; north of Vintage Park Drive, and the developed neighborhoods of Churchill Downs and Vintage Park; and east of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks, and those developed neighborhoods of Tiogawoods, Florin Town, and Sunrise Florin. In December 2003, the County of Sacramento Board of Supervisors endorsed two draft Community Plan land use maps for the 3,766 +/- acre Florin-Vineyard Gap project area for further analysis and environmental review. The base map consists of the Florin-Vineyard Community Plan Citizen's Advisory Committee (CAC) Preferred Land Use Plan, December 4, 2003 (CAC Plan). Supplementing that map are six optional amendments to the CAC Plan that were proposed by the Planning Department (Planning Options A through F) and that result in greater residential density in the plan area (the Planning Options Plan). Anticipated dwelling unit yields are 8,950 units under the CAC Plan, and 12,066 units under the Planning Options Plan. The subject Florin-Vineyard Community Plan project includes amendments to the County General Plan and the South Sacramento and Vineyard Community Plan land use designations to implement either the CAC Plan or the Planning Options Plan for the 3,766 +/- acre project site. The project also includes a Public Facilities Financing Plan, which will identify public facilities and infrastructure improvements required to support the proposed land uses. In addition, the project includes 36 privately-filed Rezone/Subdivision Map applications for development of various properties within the 3,766 +/- acre Florin-Vineyard Gap Community Plan area that are consistent with either the CAC or the Planning Options Plan.
