The Area Plan is a policy document that presents an overall concept for enhancing the existing neighborhood, as well as encouraging infill development in the area surrounding Balboa Park Station and along Geneva, Ocean, and San Jose Avenues. It includes parking and traffic-calming policies, and street-tree programs to improve the project area. It proposes specific Planning Code changes related to zoning districts and height and bulk controls in the project area. It also proposes general land use controls, and urban design and architectural standards/guidelines, as well as transportation infrastructure, public streets network, and open space improvements for the project area. In addition, the area plan includes proposals for limited amounts of mixed-use, transit-oriented development, mostly on vacant or under-developed parcels in the project area. In particular, the area plan includes proposals for the redevelopment of 2 specific project area parcels, the Phelan Loop Site and the Kragen Auto Parts Site. If approved, these 2 development projects are expected to be built in the near future (2007-2010).
