City of Escondido
The overall effort to create a South Centre Center Area Plan, called Envision South Centre City, will culminate into something that is called a "specific plan." A specific plan is a planning document that consists of new zoning standards and design guidelines for a specific area of the city. Zoning standards define the allowable uses and bulk or scale of development, while design guidelines address the appearance and quality of development.
The South Quince Street Target Area, South Escondido Boulevard Target Area, and the Centre City Parkway Target Area are identified in the City's General Plan (Target Areas C, D, E, and F). These interconnected Target Areas comprise approximately 420 acres of Escondido's more established and older sectors of the city and extends 2.25 miles along Centre City Parkway and Escondido Boulevard. The General Plan has identified this area for future growth.
