Document Description
The proposed Town Center Specific Plan is a long-range land use plan that establishes a long term vision of the City for the Town Center Specific Plan area as a regional destination incorporating a balanced mix of uses. The City’s goals for the Specific Plan are to create a mix of residential, commercial, retail, dining and entertainment uses with a robust jobs-to-housing balance; create a distinct sense of place; create a flexible framework for future development that fosters the potential for numerous development possibilities; and create a practical, timeless and buildable plan that is consistent with the City’s General Plan and implements the Housing Element. In general, the Specific Plan would encourage mixed-use development and promote a blend of residential, commercial, and recreational spaces, integrating different land uses and creating a walkable community. The Specific Plan emphasizes improved access to the McBean Regional Transit Center, thereby increasing housing choices for people who prefer convenient access to transit services. The Specific Plan envisions the development of nodes in the Specific Plan Area, which includes programmable gathering spaces and other smaller gathering spaces such as public plazas, courtyards, amphitheaters, pedestrian streets, parklets, children’s playgrounds, and parks.
