EIA 06-01 The Flower Fields, Strawberry Fields, Open Space and Public Trails Protection Act of 2006 (City-sponsored Ballot Measure)
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
The area affected by the proposed project presently consist primarily of open space and farming operations. It has been divided into five sub-areas for purposes of analysis as shown on Exhibit A attached to the EIA Initial Study form. Sub-area A is presently designated in the General Plan for Travel/Recreation (TR) Commercial and zoned Public Utility (P-U). Sub-area B is presently designated for Open Space in the General Plan, however, except for a small part, it is zoned P-U. Sub-areas C, D and E are all designated for Open Space in the General Plan and are also zoned for Open Space (OS).
Document Description
The project consists of a City-sponsored ballot measure to ensure that the Flower Fields and Strawberry Fields area in the City of Carlsbad located along the Cannon Road corridor east of the I-5 Freeway is preserved in open space, that farming is allowed to continue as a viable open space use and that public access to the area is enhanced. The proposed measure amends the General Plan, the Zoning Ordinance and the City's Local Coastal Program to designate the area for special planning consideration and to establish the regulatory mechanisms necessary to implement the purposes of the measure. The measure also amends the General Plan land use designation and the zoning of a portion of the area to change it from TR (Travel/Recreation Commercial) to OS (Open Space). A copy of the proposed ballot measure is attached to the EIA Initial Study form.
