Document Description
The Fairview Specific Plan Update provides a vision and planning framework for future growth and development in Plan Area and introduces new standards and procedures that were not included in the 1997 Fairview Specific Plan. The proposed Specific Plan includes the following chapters: Introduction, Planning Context, Land Use and Community Design, Agriculture, Transportation, Conservation, Environmental Hazards, Community Services and Infrastructure, and Implementation. For the purposes of environmental analysis, a reasonably foreseeable estimate of growth associated with the proposed Specific Plan through the horizon year of 2040 is up to 300 additional residential units compared to existing conditions. Although this IS-MND evaluates impacts of up to 300 additional housing units in the Plan Area through 2040, adoption of the proposed Specific Plan would not increase buildout capacity in Fairview—in other words, it does not “upzone” or increase the allowable number of units on parcels in the Plan Area. For the most part the Plan maintains existing zoning but adds new parameters so that future development is compatible with its surroundings, mitigates its impacts, and reduces impacts on the environment.
