Document Description
The key project components of the proposed Amendment include: 1) replace the existing regulating plan in the NMDSP with a new regulating plan and zones; 2) extend the NMDSP westerly boundary to incorporate an area to the southwest at Arrow Highway and Monte Vista Avenue; 3) extend the NMDSP easterly boundary to incorporate 22 acres of land on the west side of Central Avenue at Richton Street; 4) assign land use designations on several properties located along the west side of Central Avenue; 5) introduce a two new land use overlays, the Transition Overlay and the Shopfront Overlay; 6) alter the development potential for the planning area to allow for approx. 2,688 additional residential dwelling units and approx. 782,285 additional sq. ft. of non-residential transit-oriented development; 7) establish minimum intensity standards for the NMDSP area; 8) provide a new street alignment at Arrow Highway and Fremont Ave.; 9) reconfigure the street pattern at Moreno Street and Fremont Street; 10) update the street pattern on the northeast corner of Arrow Highway and Vista Avenue; 11) update the street pattern and park at the northeast corner of Monte Vista Avenue and Moreno Street; 12) update the street pattern north of the railroad right-of-way; 13) relocate the parking structures; 14) establish minimum lot and maximum building size standards; 15) allow for tandem parking standards; 16) remove references to single-family residential uses; 17) provide new signage standards; 18) provide public realm and landscape standards; and 19) update the exhibits in the NMDSP. The proposed project would require a General Plan Amendment to allow for the revision of the official boundary of the NMDSP site plan and other map-based exhibits reflecting the expansion area at the southwest corner of Arrow Highway and Monte Vista Ave. This area would be re-designated in the General Plan from Business Park to Planned Development. The proposed project would also require a zone change in the official City of Montclair Zoning Map and other exhibits to reflect the new zoning of the southwest corner of Arrow Highway and Monte Vista Avenue from MI Limited Manufacturing to Specific Plan with the land use zones of Town Center along Arrow Hwy and Corridor Residential on the rest of the property. A Specific Plan Amendment as described above. Additionally, the project proposes to rescind the Turner Montclair Specific Plan, annex the territory that was previously within the Turner Montclair Specific Plan into the North Montclair Downtown Specific Plan, and apply the new North Montclair Downtown Specific Plan land use designations and regulations to that area. This area is currently designated as the Turner Montclair Specific Plan (1990). Other regulatory agencies that may also require permits or other approvals for the Proposed Amendment include the Airport LAnd Use Commission for Cable Airport and Ontario International Airport, the Native American Heritage Commission for the Assembly Bill 52 consultation process, and the CA Native American tribes for the Senate Bill 18 consultation process.
