The City has kicked off the process to prepare the Program EIR (PEIR) for the Center City Corridors Specific Plan Project.
As the first step, the City prepared a Notice of Preparation (NOP) and will hold a public scoping meeting. The purpose of the NOP and the public scoping meeting is to solicit comments and suggestions regarding the scope and content of the PEIR to be prepared. Below are key dates associated with the NOP and the public scoping meeting:
NOP comment period: February 24, 2022 to March 28, 2022
Public scoping meeting date: Thursday, March 10, 2022 @ 6 p.m. via Zoom

In May 2020, the Vision Plan for the Center City Corridors area was finalized, with extensive input from the local community. The Vision Plan will be the basis for the Center City Corridors Specific Plan. A specific plan is a planning tool used to establish more detailed policies and guidance for future land use, placemaking, mobility, community services and amenities, and infrastructure decisions. This project will be funded by a Caltrans Sustainable Communities grant that was awarded to the City, specifically for this effort.
The Specific Plan process will be approximately 18 months and will include expanded community engagement, stakeholder involvement and technical analyses.
