Document Description
The Rancho Monterey Specific Plan Amendment project site occupies approximately 35 acres of vacant undeveloped land west of Monterey Avenue and north of the Dick Kelly Drive/Ginger Rogers Road alignment. The project is within the boundaries of the Monterey Specific Plan which encompasses approximately 320 acres, and was entitled in the early 1990’s. The project proposes a mixed-use development of up to 400 residential units, up to 150,000 square feet of commercial retail space (including up to 150 hotel keys) and associated improvements. A General Plan/Zoning Map Amendment is also proposed to amend the underlying designation of Community Commercial to a combination of Mixed Use and Community Commercial. The Specific Plan Amendment project area will consist of two Planning Areas (Planning Area 1 – Community Commercial & Planning Area II – Mixed Use), in addition to a Mixed-Use/Commercial Flex Zone overlay of 9.5 acres over a portion of Planning Area II to allow a mix of residential and commercial uses.
