EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
The Plan area currently includes the following uses, as identified by the Sonoma County Assessor’s office: 78.5 acres of single-family residential, 21.6 acres of multi-family residential (including duplexes through fourplexes), 15.74 acres of commercial, 2.77 acres of office, 1.47 acres of industrial, 3.35 acres of mixed use, and 3.59 acres of public uses and 15.6 acres of vacant land.
Document Description
The proposed project is the Springs Specific Plan. The 'L' shaped plan area has several distinct settings: the 1.6 mile stretch of mixed use Highway 12 corridor that forms the vertical stroke of the 'L', the residential neighborhoods just east and west of the highway, and the residential area that forms the base of the 'L' to the east along Donald and Harley Streets. The draft Springs Specific Plan proposes a development program to foster a vibrant, attractive, and multimodal community with increased opportunities for housing and improved circulation for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit. Full buildout of the Plan area could accommodate additional development of approximately 706 dwelling units, 120 hotel rooms and up to 276,903 square feet of commercial, office, recreation, and non-residential uses. The draft Plan proposes design guidelines and development standards, as well as updated zoning designations to implement the Plan.
