Portola Center Project

Document Description
The project consists of an Area Plan (Area Plan 2008-01) and Tentative Tract Map (TTM) Nos. 15353-1, 15353-2, and 17300 for the 195-acre Portola Center project site. The project will include a variety of housing types, including a mixed-use area with a small neighborhood commercial component, as well as parks, and open space. The Portola Center Area Plan would provide a comprehensive set of guidelines, regulations, and implementation plans that would guide development of the project site. The Area Plan is designed to serve as a "blueprint" for development of the project area by establishing the distribution of land use and the criteria for development of each land use district. North of Glenn Ranch Road (TTM 17300), the Area Plan proposes two single-family residential neighborhoods (east and west of Saddleback Ranch Road). South of Glenn Ranch Road (TTM 15353-1 and 15353-2), various single- and multi-family neighborhoods are proposed, as well as a mixed-use (commercial/residential) neighborhood. Pedestrian parks would be interspersed throughout the project site, and 10 to 20 acres of total parkland (including a 5.0-acre Neighborhood park and potentially, an 8.0-acre Sports Park) is proposed southwest of the intersection of Glenn Ranch Road and Saddleback Ranch Road. Open spaces are planned within and along the site's perimeter.
