Document Description
The proposed Specific Plan is intended to provide a management tool to guide land use development of an industrial business park providing for a land use mix of warehouse, manufacturing, office, and business park with limited support commercial over an estimated 20-year buildout. The approximately 213-acre Specific Plan is divided into two areas: initial development area (approximately 141 acres) and future development area (approximately 72 acres). The initial development area would allow for highcube/manufacturing/warehouse/office space at a maximum development potential of approximately 3,070,983 square feet (SF) based on the proposed floor area ratio (FAR) of 0.5:1. The future development area would allow for the same land uses at a maximum development potential of approximately 156,816 SF based on a proposed FAR of 0.05:1. A maximum development potential of up to approximately 3,227,799 SF could be developed under the Specific Plan. Adoption of the Specific Plan requires a General Plan Amendment and Zoning Map Amendment. The land use designation of the Specific Plan area would change from Very Low Density Residential (VLDR) and Low Density Residential (LDR) to Special Development (SD) and the zoning would change from RS-1-AA (Single Residential with 1-Acre Minimum Lot and Additional Agriculture Overlay) and RS-20M (Single Residential with 20,000 SF lot minimums) to SP (Specific Plan). Since the Specific Plan area’s zoning would change from residential to a non-residential use, a net loss of residential unit capacity in Bloomington could result. However, in conformance with Senate Bill 330, also known as the Housing Crisis Act of 2019, which requires replacement capacity for any displaced residential unit potential at the time of a project’s approval based on the zoning of the site in effect on January 1, 2018, the Project includes the rezoning of a residentially zoned site (referred to as the upzone site) to a higher residential density zone that would offset the loss of residential unit capacity at the Specific Plan area. Residential zoning at the Specific Plan area would allow up to 213 residential units and the upzone site would allow a total of approximately 53 residential units based on the zoning in effect at both sites on January 1, 2018. The Project would amend the land use designation for the upzone site from Low Density Residential (LDR) to Medium Density Residential (MDR) and amend the zone from RS-20M (Single Residential with 20,000 SF Minimum Lot) to RM (Multiple Residential). As a result of the designation and zone change, the upzone would allow a total of approximately 480 residential units, thereby avoiding an overall net loss of residential unit capacity from rezoning the Specific Plan area to a non-residential land use.
