Document Description
The Westside Area Plan (proposed Project or WSAP) is a community-based plan that focuses on land use and policy issues that are specific to the unique characteristics and needs of the Project area. The Westside Area Plan is a long-range policy document that will guide long-term growth of the unincorporated communities in the Project area through development of goals, policies, and implementation actions. The proposed Project would amend the General Plan to establish both areawide and community- specific goals and policies to address local land use concerns and issues. The WSAP would also implement land use and zoning updates based on recommendations from the recently approved General Plan’s 6th Cycle Housing Element 2021-2029 (Housing Element) as well as new land use and zone changes to facilitate additional housing opportunities and ensure consistency between zoning and land use designations. The Westside Area Plan includes goals and policies that address topics such as preservation of community character, sustainable growth and land use development, open spaces and natural resources protection, promotion of economic health and prosperity of local businesses, and equitable and safe mobility options. The unincorporated communities in the Westside Planning Area encompass vibrant neighborhoods that collectively recognize and celebrate history, people, diversity, and culture. The Westside Area Plan furthers the efforts to promote active, healthy, and safe intergenerational neighborhoods where residents are well connected to great places to live, work, shop, recreate, and gather; to foster economic vitality while serving local needs; to protect and preserve natural resources and open spaces; and to support sustainable mobility options in an enhanced built environment. The WSAP will address elements such as land use, mobility, conservation and open space, public services and facilities, economic development, and historic preservation.
