This is it! Neighborhood Planning Enters the Final Phase
After five phases and countless volunteer and staff hours, neighborhood planning has entered the final phase – Adoption! After years of gathering community input for the visions, goals, and policies in the Neighborhood Plan, the Community Advisory Committee is ready to present the draft Neighborhood Plan back to the neighbors who inspired it.
We are looking for your feedback on how well the Neighborhood Plan captures your community vision and priorities. The documents proposed for adoption or approval by the City Council and Board of Commissioners include:
Draft Neighborhood Plan: The Neighborhood Plan focuses on Economic Development, Transportation, Parks and Natural Resources, Land Use, and Community. Each topic area includes a vision statement, goals, and policies.
Draft Action Plan: The Action Plan includes community identified actions that are possible strategies to implement the adopted policies in the Neighborhood Plan. The Action Plan will guide implementation of the Neighborhood Plan incrementally over the long-term and will require continued coordination between the City, County, River Road and Santa Clara communities, and other community partners, as well as advocacy for additional resources.
Draft Neighborhood Code Amendments (Summary or Full Text): This set of proposed code changes amends the Low Density Residential (R-1) and Community Commercial (C-2) zones to incorporate the most critical items originally included in the Draft River Road Corridor Code and important to the neighborhoods. This includes building height limits, expanding farm sales opportunities, prohibiting or limiting certain auto-oriented uses, and adding transition standards between commercial and residential zones.
