The Specific Plan will bring the Area Plan to life by designing the layout, uses, and features of development, implementing the Area Plan's standards and policies. While the Area Plan sets the vision and standards for development on the former Concord Naval Weapons Station (CNWS), the Specific Plan provides detailed guidance for how the site will look and feel. This includes details on what the buildings will look like, how people will get around, and design of public spaces and community facilities. The Specific Plan will guide development of the entire developed area.
After a new Master Developer is selected, the Specific Plan is the next phase in community planning for the former CNWS. There will be new opportunities to weigh in on how the Area Plan's adopted vision and standards are implemented. The plan will be reviewed by the Planning Commission and City Council prior to Council Adoption. Additionally, the City will analyze the plan's environmental impacts under the California Environmental Quality Act.
The "restart" of the Specific Plan drafting process is expected in early 2022.
