Document Description
The Project area consists of the approximately 150 acres governed by the HTCMP Within the boundaries of the HTCMP area is the 48-acre Historic Town Center (HTC). These two areas overlap and compose the Project area. The implementation of the HTCMP and the Form Based Codes (FBC) in 2012 introduced land use inconsistencies between the Master Plan, the City of San Juan Capistrano General Plan, and the FBC. To remedy the inconsistencies, the Project proposes the repeal of the HTCMP and FBC as well as several revisions to replace the FBC by amending the Zoning Code and General Plan Land Use Element. The Project would amend the General Plan to allow a FAR ofOJ5:1 for the TC and TCE Distlicts and 1 5:1 for buildings with provisions for public spaces. The Project would also clarify building height limits and would also readopt and affirm the Park Once Program.
