Specific & Precise Plans

The specific plan is a tool defined by state law in California and several other states to allow a customized set of development standards to be legally adopted for a specific property or area. Sargent Town Planning has almost 30 years’ experience in deploying this tool to enable the adoption of area-specific development standards, design guidelines, and form-based and hybrid codes to guide the development or regeneration of neighborhoods, downtowns, employment districts and corridors. Precise plans are a similar but more loosely defined type of document that allows communities to flexibly define the priorities for a defined area, and we are expert in helping to craft such plans that emphasize community priorities and calibrate the level of detail to meet community objectives.
