Village South concept design presented at neighborhood meeting
The city of Claremont presented concepts for the Village South Specific Plan, including results from commission review, environmental review and a timeline for plan adoption by city council, on Monday, April 29 in the Claremont City Council Chamber.
While the meeting was primarily intended for owners of property within or adjacent to the plan area, all residents were welcome to attend. No decisions were made at the meeting.
The Village South Specific Plan is an effort by the city to rezone approximately 18 acres of land south of the Village. The plan is intended to create a mixed-use area that expands the Village South from the railroad right-of-way south to Arrow Highway, and from Indian Hill Boulevard to Bucknell Avenue.
In March 2017, the city council unanimously approved a $494,670 contract with consultant Sargent Town Planners to help create the specific plan.
On June 24, 2018, the Claremont City Council approved a set of Planning Goals and Guiding Principles, which have served as the base for Sargent Town Planners to utilize in developing the specific plan.
Once the document is finalized, it will be circulated and reviewed at a series of public meetings of city commissions and the city council. During that review, a full Environmental Impact Report (EIR) will be developed and reviewed for final adoption by the council.
Copies of the Village South Specific Planning Goals and Guiding Principles are available at Claremont City Hall, Planning Division, 207 Harvard Ave. Monday through Thursday, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
