Document Description
City intends to adopt a new Economic Development Element (EDE) of the General Plan as a general plan amendment. Additional amendments to existing text, tables, and graphics in the existing General Plan are proposed to account for the content of the new EDE. One "Target Area" within the city limits and five Target Areas outside, but adjacent to, the city's SOI are proposed for development to meet projected employment demand through GP buildout. New building capacity projected at 5,255,959 sf is comprised of industrial, retail, and business park uses. 8,981 new jobs are projected. Prior to city consideration of future development proposals within Target Areas located outside the SOI, approvals for SOI amendments and annexations must be obtained from Monterey County LAFCO.
