The General Plan land use designation for the project area is Area Plan - Community Core. The adoption of the proposed Specific Plan is consistent with the City's General Plan which anticipates use of a regulatory Specific Plan as a tool to implement General Plan goals for the Community Cote/Downtown Historical District.
The existing zoning for the project area is General Commercial (GC) with the Lakeview/Altrudy site designated as Single Family Residentail (R-S). The Town Center (TC) Combining District encompasses the majority of the project area (the area between Imperial Highway, Yorba Linda Boulevard, Lakeview Avenue and Lemon Drive). Once adopted, the proposed Specific Plan would replace the existing zoning for the project area.
The following are the City project objectives for the Yorba Linda Town Center Specific Plan:
- Establish a vision and create a land use plan for reuse of underutilized parcels.
- Provide and implement a land use plan that promotes orderly and viable development and a destination that meets the needs of residents, business and visitors.
- Provide development standards and design guidelines that encourage development of underused parcels with a mix of uses and quality architecture that will complement the existing area uses.
- Establish and maintain efficient on-site and off-site traffic circulation.
- Provide adequate parking and improve pedestrian connections.
- Preserve historical character of the Town Center and restore and revitalize Main Street as the head of the Town Center area.
- Create an attractive Town Center environment that serves as community destination for a variety of events and gatherings.
- Implement green and sustainable building practices, where appropriate.
