Document Description
An EIR will be prepared to analyze the potential impacts of adopting and implementing the West Downtown Specific Plan, along with associated General Plan and Zoning Ordinance amendments. The Specific Plan will be a community-driven plan aimed at improving the area between the BART Station and Downtown, as well as major corridors like Mount Diablo Boulevard, North California Boulevard, Olympic Boulevard and Ygnacio Valley Road. The Specific Plan will focus on creating better connections for vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians, and will also define development types and densities allowed in the area over the next 25 years. In some instances, existing height limits and maximum densities and floor area ratios will be increased to allow for a greater range of development types in West Downtown.
