Draft River Road-Santa Clara Neighborhood Plan is Here

The River Road-Santa Clara (RRSC) Neighborhood Plan is in the Adoption Phase and the project team is preparing a Neighborhood Plan adoption package, which will include documents and recommendations to help implement the community vision. The Adoption Phase will include community outreach and opportunities for input before a Neighborhood Plan adoption package is recommended to decisionmakers.

Covers to the Neighborhood Plan and the Neighborhood Action Plan June 2022

A draft of the Neighborhood Plan is now on the project website and ready for you to read! The Neighborhood Plan will provide policy direction, guide City and County staff in developing other work programs and preparing budgets, and calls for continued collaboration from the community. The Neighborhood Plan is supported by the Action Plan, which will help guide implementation of the Neighborhood Plan over the long-term and will require continued coordination and advocacy between the City, County, neighborhood organizations, and community. These draft plans are the result of years of community participation and volunteer hours, capturing the neighborhood vision for the future. 

As we work towards getting the plan adopted, the draft Neighborhood Plan and accompanying draft land use code and proposed zoning will be shared for broader community outreach and engagement this summer. Stay tuned for opportunities to participate and provide input in the coming months.
