City Council has directed staff to develop an East Whisman Precise Plan to implement the 2030 General Plan goals and policies for the area and study new residential land uses in the area. The General Plan identifies East Whisman as a highly-sustainable, transit-oriented employment center with a diversity of land uses.
The new Precise Plan will include development standards, such as building setbacks and height limits, allowed land uses, urban design guidelines, and will identify new public improvements for the area.
