Document Description
The project includes an update of the Downtown Station Area Specific Plan consisting of goals, policies, standards, guidelines, and diagrams to guide the future development of the Planning Area. The Proposed Plan will legally function as a Specific Plan for regulating land use and coordinating the provision of public services and infrastructure. The Proposed Plan is a document to be adopted by the City Council that serves the following purposes: • Establish a long-range vision that reflects the aspirations of the community and outlines steps to achieve this vision; • Establish long-range development policies that will guide City departments, Planning Commission, and City Council decision-making; • Provide a basis for judging whether specific development proposals and public projects are in harmony with plan policies; • Plan in a manner that meets future land needs based on the projected population and job growth; • Allow City departments, other public agencies, and private developers to design projects that will enhance the small-town character of the community, preserve environmental resources, and minimize hazards; and • Provide the basis for establishing and setting priorities for detailed plans and implementing programs, such as the zoning ordinance, subdivision regulations, specific and master plans, and the Capital Improvement Program. The Proposed Plan would replace the existing 2007 Specific Plan in all elements. The Proposed Plan would establish a planning and policy framework that would extend to horizon year 2040.
