Etiwanda Heights Plan presented to Planning Commission

On the evening of April 24, Sargent Town Planning assisted Rancho Cucamonga city staff in presenting a Directors Report on the Draft Etiwanda Heights Neighborhood & Conservation Plan to the City’s Planning Commission. The Plan designates over 3,500 acres of foothill terrain as Rural open space, conservation and very limited rural development, and over 800 acres for development as walkable neighborhoods. The Plan provides detailed development standards and guidelines for neighborhood and rural enviroments, and includes an extensive, well funded conservation plan and transfer of development rights (TDR) program. The Plan is the result of almost 4 years of City/STP collaboration, including extensive habitat surveys and analysis, conceptual plan alternatives and Planning Commission workshops, and a yearlong community engagement process that included surveys, workshops and open house. The plan and associated environmental impact report are currently available online for public review and comment.
