The County of Santa Cruz and the City of Watsonville are preparing a joint Specific Plan (City) and Planned Unit Development (County) for the Atkinson Lane future growth area (project site). The project site falls within the City's Urban Limit Line. The total gross acreage of the project site is 65.8 acres, which includes 16 acres of land to be re-zoned by the County prior to annexation by the City to meet County's affordable housing goals. Land uses and densities for the plan would be determined as part of the Specific Plan and Planned Unit Development process. Although the City of Watsonville General Plan identifies that up to 600 residential units may be allowed within the planning area, 450 units are proposed. A Planned Unit Development as allowed by Santa Cruz County Code has been prepared that incorporated conditions of approval for the 16 acres of land to be re-zoned by the County of Santa Cruz. The proposed project would also require a General Plan Amendment and LAFCo action.
