Norwalk Entertainment District-Civic Center Specific Plan Project
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
The City will prepare an EIR to analyze environmental impacts associated with implementation of the proposed project, which would include the establishment of the Norwalk Entertainment District-Civic Center Specific Plan. The proposed project seeks to implement the City’s Economic Development Opportunities Plan, which identified the project site as an area for the promotion of economic development, by revitalizing the project site with the development of a vibrant community-focused development. The proposed project to be described in the specific plan includes the construction of a mixed-use development with residential, commercial, and open space uses on the location of the current City Hall Lawn and surface parking lot. Up to 400 residential units and associated amenities would be developed. Up to 150,000 square feet of commercial uses would be developed and would include a mix of food and beverage establishments, retail, commercial, health and wellness facilities, and office uses.
The proposed project would include ground-floor public open space and residential open space. Residential parking would be provided on-site, and the proposed project would also utilize the existing parking structure in the southern part of the project site for the proposed commercial uses. No modifications to the existing parking structure facility are proposed. No modifications are proposed to the existing Norwalk City Hall building or the small portion of the County building that are within the project site, and the existing uses within these structures would continue. Construction of the proposed project, in accordance with the proposed specific plan, is anticipated to begin in 2023 and last up to 24 months.
A general plan amendment is proposed to establish a land use designation of specific plan for the project site. The development area of the project site is owned by the City but is proposed to be developed by the applicant through a public private partnership with the City, which may include, among other things, a lease to the applicant of portions of the project site in order to implement the development authorized by the specific plan.
