The Village South Specific Plan is currently in initial stages of gathering and documenting existing conditions for the site as well as receiving public input to develop a vision of the broader Claremont community for the future of the Village South.
Please join us in our Kick-off Public Workshop for Village South Specific Plan and help shape the plan from the outset. We will be leading this workshop with our consultant team headed by Sargent Town Planning to present our initial research on the site and solicit your comments and ideas for the site.
The workshop will take place on a Saturday morning, promptly starting at 9am (going until noon) and will consist of a combination of presentations, group discussions, exercises and exhibits. A light morning snack will be served. If you have any thoughts you’d like to share but can’t make the workshop please contact Chris Veirs, Principal Planner for the City at (909) 399-5486.
The City’s intent is to proactively plan for an area of the City that is underutilized due to existing development that is largely inconsistent with both the current zoning as well as long term changes in regional land use patterns. The purpose of the Specific Plan is to do something to address these issues, whether it is to simply reinforce existing zoning or create entirely new zoning based on a new community vision for this area. In addition, it is expected to plan for improvements to surrounding transportation facilities in order to address changes related to the future Gold Line extension. Finally, the plan is anticipated to create design guidelines to help ensure the area contributes positively to the character of Claremont.
