Document Description
The proposed Metro Area Plan is a community-based plan that focuses on land use and policy issues that are specific to the unique characteristics and needs of the Metro Planning Area. The project’s seven communities are currently subject to numerous and often overlapping plans, policies, and regulations. The Metro Area Plan will consolidate regulations that currently exist across multiple plans to simplify and streamline land use and zoning regulations. The Metro Area Plan will include updates to various community plans, transit-oriented districts (TOD) specific plans, and community standards districts, and will serve as the basis for a future Capital Improvement Plan. A primary goal of the Metro Area Plan is to update existing land use policies to address community needs and prioritize issues that are central to the lives of community members. The Metro Area Plan will implement zoning recommendations from the recently approved General Plan’s Housing Element and will consider environmental justice and equity to set forth land uses and policies.
