Document Description
The project is the city of El Cajon Housing Element rezone program EIR. In order to accommodate the city's share of regional growth, the city has developed a rezone strategy that would apply a mixed use or MU residential required overlay zone to selected properties at appropriate densities. The MU and MU-RR overlay zones would be applied to specific properties within four project areas: the downtown core, fletcher parkway corridor, parkway plaza/Arnele Ave Transit station area and East Main St corridor. This strategy would reinvigorate existing commercial areas by allowing new residential uses in close proximity to commercial services and community facilities, while preserving established residential neighborhoods. The majority of the selected parcels within the project areas are designated for commercial or residential land uses (through the general plan and zoning code), except for a small area surrounding the Arnele Ave transit station. This area is currently designated under the general plan as light industrial and public institution land uses and would require a general plan amendment and rezone to a commercial land use in order to allow for a new commercial and residential opportunities surrounding the transit station.
