The City is considering options to guide the future redevelopment of La Cumbre Plaza. No formal action or development proposal is under consideration at this point.
The City's General Plan envisions a future Specific Plan to provide direction for the eventual redevelopment of La Cumbre Plaza as follows:
Policy LG15: Sustainable Neighborhood Planning. Neighborhoods shall be encouraged to preserve and enhance the sense of place, provide opportunities for healthy living and accessibility, while reducing the community's carbon footprint.
Implementation Action LG15.2 - La Cumbre Plaza Specific Plan. Prepare an initial framework for a future La Cumbre Plaza Specific Plan for the eventual redevelopment of the site based on the analysis in the Upper State Street Study, including identification of applicable parcels, and issues to be addressed in the future Specific Plan. Include consideration of a mixed commercial and residential village approach and possible public improvements such as a transit center, open space/public park, pedestrian connections, east/west vehicle circulation connections, and parking structures.
On May 7, 2019, the City Council considered initiating a Specific Plan to guide redevelopment of La Cumbre Plaza, as it may occur in stages and over an extended period of time. No formal action occurred at that meeting. City Council directed staff to continue to engage the property owners within the proposed Specific Plan boundary and return to Council with further information on topics to be addressed in a potential Specific Plan.
