The Specific Plan provides the opportunity for a variety of housing product types throughout the Plan Area consistent with the City’s housing goals and policies outlined in the 2035 General Plan including Policy 2.D.1 which speaks to the importance of a jobs/housing balance. Specifically there are three residential zones, Low-, Medium- and High-Density Residential (see Land Plan HERE). The Medium Density Residential (MDR) zone allows for a variety of product types including small lot single-family detached units, attached walk-ups and townhomes, and smaller apartment or loft style residential units. Medium Density Residential is permitted directly adjacent to the 11-acre linear park, central to the overall project area, and in two locations along the west side of Harry Lorenzo Avenue/greenbelt, opposite Spring Lake Central near Pioneer/Parkland and at the southeast corner of the plan area. Where Medium Density Residential is proposed adjacent to Low Density or single family residential zones, Specific Plan Design Guidelines speak to appropriate transitions including height and setbacks.
High Density Residential zones are located near the interior of the plan area along Road B, providing nearby access to transit and other amenities. High Density Residential zones allow for townhomes, and lofts as well as more traditional apartment development.
