Current status - as of Oct. 5, 2015
The City Council approval of the Specific Plan and related actions took place in June 2012, and became effective one month later. The final Specific Plan is available below, and the Final Environmental Impact Report is available on the EIR subpage. New development proposals in the Plan area are required to adhere to the Specific Plan regulations. In addition, the city is considering implementation of public space improvements on an ongoing basis through the 5-Year Capital Improvement Plan process.
On August 3, 2015, the Planning Commission conducted the biennial review of the Specific Plan. This is part of the ongoing review requirement, which was established to ensure that the Plan is functioning as intended, as well as to consider the policy-related implications of various Plan aspects. Following the Planning Commission's review and recommendation, the City Council will conduct a similar session on October 6, 2015. For more information, please see the staff report.
In addition, the Transportation Division is conducting a related project, the El Camino Real Corridor Study. This project will review potential transportation and safety improvements to El Camino Real between Sand Hill Road and Encinal Avenue.
