Document Type
NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
The project establishes the Norwalk Entertainment District-Civic Center Specific Plan and includes the construction and operation 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 350 residential units and associated amenities would be developed. Up to 110,000 square feet of commercial uses would be developed and would include a mix of retail, food and beverage, health and wellness, and/or grocery/market uses. The proposed project would include ground-floor open space that would be publicly accessible but privately maintained and operated, and residential open space areas for residents. Parking for the proposed project would be accommodated in the new mixed-use buildings and within the existing parking structure. The proposed project would also allow for the construction of up to two additional stories on the existing parking structure (700 additional parking spaces). No modifications are proposed to the existing Norwalk City Hall building or the small portion of the County accessory building (located south of City Hall) that are within the project site. Construction of the proposed project, in accordance with the proposed specific plan, is anticipated to begin in 2023 and last up to 23 months. On October 4, 2022 the City Council approved the proposed project and adopted resolutions for the approval of General Plan amendments, Zone Map amendment, Conditional Use Permit, and ground lease, certification of the Environmental Impact Report, approval of the Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program, and adoption of the Statement of Overriding Considerations. Since then on October 18, 2022, the City Council took the following additional actions: • Adoption of Ordinance No. 22-1734 adopting Zone Text Amendment No. 2022-01 establishing the Norwalk Entertainment District – Civic Center Specific Plan • Adoption of Ordinance No. 22-1735 approving development agreement No. 2022-01 by and between the City of Norwalk and Primestor Development, Inc.
