What is a Specific Plan?
A Specific Plan acts as the Zoning Code for an individual community or development. It establishes the type, location, intensity and character of development and the required infrastructure in order for development to take place. A Specific Plan identifies physical constraints and environmental sensitivities. It also includes the intended residential density, transportation/circulation, recreation, and public amenities.
The Specific Plan will carry out the land use plan by establishing policies and site development regulations which are in conformance with General Plan. The Specific Plan is regulatory, adopted by ordinance and will be consistent with the Santa Clarita Valley Area Plan. Subsequent development plans, development agreements, tentative tracts, parcel maps and other development approvals must be consistent with the Specific Plan.
