Document Description
The proposed project is the update of the Sierra Madre General Plan, which will guide the growth and development (e.g., infill development, redevelopment, and revitalization/restoration) of the City 20 years or more into the future. The General Plan Update involves a revision to the current land use map and all elements except Housing. It will guide growth and development within the City by designating land uses in the proposed land use map and through implementation of the goals and policies of the General Plan Update. Assuming a theoretical buildout (post-2035 scenario) of the land use plan, the City is projected to accommodate approximately 5,017 residential dwelling units (4,911 existing plus 106 new) and 8,808,401 sf of non-residential sf (8,757,035 existing plus 51,366 new), which includes commercial, manufacturing and institutional land uses. Additionally, approximately 544 acres will be dedicated to open space and hillside management. The General Plan Update consists of the following elements: Land Use, Resource Management, Hazard Prevention, and Community Services, which are included as individual chapters in the General Plan Update.
