Document Description
The proposed project consists of a new DECSP that would replace two existing downtown area specific plans with an updated vision for the downtown area. The two specific plans that would be replaced by the proposed DECSP include the adopted Downtown El Cajon Specific Plan (SP 182) and Specific Plan 462. The proposed 541 acre DECSP thus encompasses a larger area of downtown than the existing SP 182, and includes updated development standards and design guidelines to "improve the economic health of the City through revitalization of the downtown." The DECSP is based on smart growth planning principles, whereby future city growth would be concentrated in the city center, as opposed to outlying areas; the populated city center would be linked to viable transit and other mobility (biking, walking) networks; city residents would be given opportunities to participate in the local economy, and a sense of community identify would be created through development of distinct neighborhoods.
