Notice of Availability and Notice of Completion of Draft Program Environmental Impact Report for the Pittsburg Technology Park Specific Plan
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
The Plan Area has a 2040 General Plan land use designation of “Employment Center Industrial (ECI).” To achieve internal consistency between the 2040 General Plan and the City’s Zoning Ordinance, as required by Government Code 65860, the City has approved a Zoning Map Amendment to rezone the Plan Area from “Open Space (OS)” District to “Limited Industrial with an Overlay (IL-O)” District to allow for employment-generating and light manufacturing uses with specific development regulations.
Document Description
The proposed Pittsburg Technology Park Specific Plan (Specific Plan) would serve as the overarching planning document for the Plan Area, providing policy guidance, implementation measures, development standards and design guidelines for future development of the Plan Area as a technology-focused business park. The proposed Specific Plan includes sections addressing circulation and mobility, and utilities and infrastructure for the Plan Area. Specific Plan Uses As described in the proposed Specific Plan, permitted uses in the Plan Area would accommodate uses that are consistent with the 2040 General Plan ECI land use designation, such as: Administrative, Business, and Professional Offices, Data Centers, Energy Facilities, Financial Offices, Government/Public Offices, Medical Offices and Medical Testing, Research and Development Services and Production, Manufacturing (Custom and Limited), and Warehouse and Distribution (Interior and Exterior Storage). Permitted uses within the Plan Area would be subject to development standards and design guidelines, and land use entitlement procedures and actions outlined in the proposed Specific Plan. Future project proposals within the Plan Area would be evaluated for consistency with the objectives and provisions of the Specific Plan through individual permit applications, as determined by the Zoning Administrator. Project Phases The proposed Specific Plan is based on a concept for development of the Plan Area in three phases. Phase I is assumed to be a data center project or other permitted use(s) allowed by the Specific Plan on the 22.05-acre portion of the Plan Area north of the Contra Costa Canal. The Pittsburg Data Hub (PDH) is one potential project that could be developed in Phase I. The potential Phase I data center CEQA compliance documentation would be completed by the California Energy Commission, as it has regulatory authority over data centers with over 49 megawatts (MW) or greater capacity. Future Phases II and III, on the 54.33-acre portion of the Plan Area south of the canal, would be designed to accommodate up to 761,118 square feet of development for a dynamic employment center.
