What is the Urban Village Boundary General Plan land use designation?
The Urban Village Area Boundary delineates the areas of the City identified as having the potential to support growth through redevelopment and intensification to implement the General Plan’s Focused Growth Major Strategy. The Urban Village Area Boundary may be adjusted through the Urban Village planning process. Properties within an Urban Village Area Boundary may have an Urban Village designation or an underlying General Plan designation that is not Urban Village (e.g. a commercial or residential designation). New development must conform to the underlying designation for the property. Most sites within areas designated as within the Urban Village Area Boundary are planned for full redevelopment in a later General Plan Horizon. (See the Horizon section below for a description of Horizons)
