Document Description
The proposed Sunset Area Plan is a Placer County-initiated update to its 1997 Sunset Industrial Area Plan. The Placer Ranch Specific Plan (PRSP) is included as part of the proposed Sunset Area Plan. This effort would update the existing community plan, general plan, maps, and regulations. The Sunset Industrial Area, which includes the Placer Ranch Specific Plan (PRSP) project site, encompasses 8,358 acres located in unincorporated south Placer County. The County will prepare an EIR for the project to satisfy the requirements of the CEQA and will serve as lead agency for CEQA compliance. The EIR will analyze the overall Sunset Industrial Area at a program level, and provide a more detailed project-level analysis for the Placer Ranch Specific Plan. The Sunset Area Plan will bring forward new land use designations, including: General Commercial, Entertainment/Mixed Use; Business Park; Innovation Center; Eco-Industrial; Light Industrial; Public Facility; and Urban Reserve. The 2,213-acre Placer Ranch Specific Plan (PRSP) is a mixed-use community proposed in the Sunset Area Plan consisting of 5,827 residential units including a 720 unit age-restricted community; an elementary school, middle school, 323.5 acres of neighborhood parks and open space; and 6,356,800 sq. ft. of general commercial, commercial mixed use, and campus park (office, research and development, light industrial, and commercial) uses complementary to the university. The proposed university and non-residential land uses of the project are intended as a catalyst for employment-generating development in Placer County's overall Sunset Area.
