Document Description
The proposed project is an update to the City of San Carlos 2030 General Plan to amend the buildout capacity of the City of San Carlos General Plan. There are currently a variety of planning efforts being undertaken in the city, as well as ongoing development projects. The Northeast Area Specific Plan and Downtown Specific Plan are being prepared concurrently with this project. An EIR is being prepared separately for the Northeast Area Specific Plan; please see the project website for details: https://www.sancarlosnortheastplan.com/. Because the Downtown Specific Plan is planned to be consistent with the 2045 General Plan Reset, it is anticipated that an Addendum to the General Plan Reset EIR will be prepared for the Downtown Specific Plan after certification of the 2045 General Plan Reset EIR; please see the project website for details: https://www.sancarlosdowntownplan.com/. Both Specific Plans include buildout projections that are incorporated into the citywide buildout capacity for the 2045 General Plan Reset.
