West Area Specific Plan and Future Growth Areas

Staff is making the refining changes to the West Area Specific Plan and overseeing the same for the associated Draft Environmental Impact Report to prepare these documents for a 45-day public review period. The West Area Specific Plan project is located within the North of Boronda Future Growth Area between Boronda, San Juan Grade and Russell Roads (as shown on the figure titled “North of Boronda Future Growth Area, West Area Specific Plan” below).

The project will feature new urbanism principles applied to 4,340 dwelling units of high, medium and low densities provided in a variety of housing products, and approximately 500,000 square feet of mixed-use commercial/residential development over 797 acres. This project is contemplated in the Salinas General Plan (2002) as part of the North of Boronda Future Growth Area as described above. The West Area is the first of three large specific plan areas located North of Boronda Road, currently in agricultural use.
