Document Description
The Milpitas Metro Specific Plan Project (Metro Plan) is a long-term planning document that updates the original 2008 Milpitas Transit Area Specific Plan (TASP) and vision for the area. The Metro Plan would result in the following three changes relative to the TASP: (1) The Metro Plan would expand the planning area by approximately 73 additional acres for a total area of 510 acres, compared to the TASP; (2) The Metro Plan would change land use classifications (increased allowable densities, new land use classifications, and change in location of land use classifications) and policies, compared to the TASP; and (3) would allow additional population growth (14,000) and employment (9,500 new jobs), compared to the TASP.
