City of Rolling Hills Estates General Plan Update

NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
The Rolling Hills Estates General Plan is a guidance document that describes the City's vision as a livable community with excellent services, a strong identity, healthy business opportunities, and a strong and efficient government. It is the City's official statement regarding the extent and types of development of land and infrastructure that will achieve the community's physical, economic, social, and environmental goals. The proposed GPU addresses emerging issues and community priorities, ensures compliance with State law, and revises implementing policy frameworks to focus on present and future goals and policy objectives. The proposed GPU also incorporates new and updated assumptions, data, and analysis, as well as establishes a new vision and blueprint for development and investment through 2040. The proposed GPU addresses eight General Plan elements, seven of which are required by State law (i.e., circulation, conservation, housing, land use, noise, open space, and safety). In addition to these seven elements, the proposed GPU includes a Sustainability Element. Rolling Hills Estates is essentially a built-out City and the residential neighborhoods, as well as the parks and recreation areas, are well-established and are not expected to change during the timeline of this proposed GPU. The primary changes included in the proposed GPU include: - Apply a new Commercial District Mixed-Use Overlay to the City's Commercial District that would allow for a base residential density of 30 dwelling units per acre with an opportunity for a 50-percent density bonus for projects that provide certain community benefits. - Redesignate the property on the northwestern corner of Highridge Road and Armaga Spring Road from Commercial Office to Neighborhood Commercial. - Revise allowable land uses for certain institutional-designated properties to include affordable residential uses at 1 to 2 units per acre concentrated in small portions of Institutional properties. - Adjust the land use designations of several parcels to match their current uses. - Envision changing part of Silver Spur Road from a four-lane street to a two-lane street, narrowing it to a "main street" scale street, with angled parking (instead of parallel parking), buffered bike lanes, and other amenities. - Envision reconnecting Deep Valley Drive if and when redevelopment of the Promenade Mall site occurs.
