At the October 29, 2013 public workshop, City Council allowed that the applicants may proceed to prepare a Specific Plan, environmental and water supply assessments with a few conditions (and without any guarantee of approval).  Their conditions included a number of minor modifications recommended by the Planning Commission [the staff report showing recommended conditions/changes can be downloaded here].

Over the next 12-18 months the applicant may prepare a Specific Plan, which will be subjected to public scrutiny, and then undertake an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) as well as a Water Supply Assessment (WSA).  The results of those studies will identify impacts, resource constraints, mitigations, fiscal impacts, etc..  Ultimately, the Plan, EIR and WSA will be presented for public review and the City Council will decide whether to approve, modify or reject the proposed Specific Plan.
