Scotts Valley General Plan
Located at the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Scotts Valley’s roots are grounded in strong community and family values. In addition to its vibrant, small-business job base, it is within easy commuting distance to well-paying Silicon Valley jobs. It is also in close proximity to natural beauty and recreation opportunities of the beaches and open space of the greater Monterey Bay.
Kimley-Horn is preparing a comprehensive update to the existing 1994 General Plan. As part of the community outreach effort, four magazine-style “fact sheets” were prepared to provide context and identify potential issues for feedback from the public. A strategic assessment of land uses was prepared to identify the highest and best use for remaining vacant and underdeveloped parcels, with an emphasis on greater densities in and around the proposed Town Center and along transit corridors.
Preparation of the plan will include the development of a city-wide traffic model, preparation of the climate action plan, and preparation of a programmatic EIR, all being prepared by Kimley-Horn.
