Chollas Triangle Community Plan Amendment and Rezone
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
CC-5-3 and IL-3-1 / Commercial Mixed Use and Industrial
Document Description
The project is to amend the Mid-City Communities Plan - Eastern Area to redesignate approximately 12.5 acres of Commercial Mixed Use and approximately 3.4 acres of Industrial to Neighborhood Village in an approximately 36 acres area between University Avenue to the north, Chollas Creek and Chollas Parkway to the south and east, and 54th street to the west. The Neighborhood Village land use designation would allow for the development of multi-family housing in a mixed-use setting and convenience shopping and services. The amendment would also revise the Future Recommended Street Network to vacate the approximately 11.4 acres Chollas Parkway and designate approximately 5.4 acres as population-based park land, with the remaining land being designated as open space. The proposed project would add a two lane collector at the location of Lea Street, extending north to intersect with University Avenue. The proposed project would also include a rezone to the current CC-5-3 and IL-3-1 zones to zones consistent with the new land use designations as recommended in the General Plan. The proposed project zones would include CC-3-5 with the adoption of the Community Plan Implementation Overlay Zone (CPIOZ Type B) to limit the total sf on non-residential development to no more than 130,000 sf of commercial; and OP-2-1 consistent with the Park land use designation. At build out the project area could produce approximately 486 dwelling units of multi-family housing, and approximately 130,000 sf of non-residential development that could include a mixture of retail, office, and other commercial uses.
