Document Description
The proposed Project requests a General Plan Amendment, Specific Plan, Zone Change, Tentative Parcel Map, two Plot Plans, and a Development Agreement to redevelop the former munitions bunkers and adjacent land from the March AFB. The Project consists of the following components: Specific Plan Area, including a Campus Development with a buildout scenario including ten Business Park parcels, six Mixed Use parcels, three Industrial parcels, two Public Facility parcels, and three open space parcels. These parcels would be created, designated, and graded. Buildings B and C would be constructed on two of the Industrial Parcels. The remaining parcels would be developed with square footages as allowed under the Specific Plan. A proposed park component of the Project, consisting of 60.28-acre park west of the Barton Street extension, is included under the Specific Plan buildout scenario. Infrastructure improvements would include the installation of utility and roadway networks connecting to and throughout the Specific Plan Area, the construction of a new sewer lift station, the construction of a new electrical substation, and the construction of a new 0.5 million gallon reclaimed water tank. A Conservation Easement of approximately 445.43 acres of undisturbed land surrounding the Specific Plan Area would be placed under a conservation easement, consistent with prior determinations made as part of the CBD Settlement Agreement.
