Recirculated NOP for Aquabella Specific Plan Amendment
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Downtown Center (DC), Aquabella Specific Plan, Residential 5 (R5)
Document Description
Project entitlements will include a General Plan Amendment, Specific Plan Amendment, Tentative Tract Map, and Development Agreement. The Project would continue to implement a mixed-use residential community on the Project site with commercial uses, a lake complex and lake promenade, and other amenities, while modifying residential uses to better help the City meet local and regional housing goals. The Aquabella Specific Plan Amendment would provide a comprehensive update to land use and other plans, site development standards, design guidelines, and implementation measures necessary to implement the new vision for the Aquabella mixed-use planned community. The proposed Project would amend SP 218 to guide the development of the remaining undeveloped portions of the Specific Plan area with multi-family and workforce housing options, while providing a town center for recreation, shopping, and entertainment. The proposed Project also includes the potential development of a school site on a parcel designated Residential 5 (R5) on the Project site’s eastern boundary. The 770.5-acre Project would include phased development of 15,000 residential units and workforce housing options for all ages and income levels; a 49,900 square foot (sf) mixed-use commercial and retail town center; 80 acres of parks (comprised of a 40-acre lake, a 15-acre lake promenade, and an additional 25 acres of parks); and 40 acres of schools, with up to three elementary school sites and one middle school site. Updated public services and facilities; infrastructure improvements; and other amenities would also be included.
