The Area Plan translates the community vision of the Reuse Plan into policies and standards to guide development on the former Concord Naval Weapons Station (CNWS). The Area Plan was adopted by the City in 2012 and incorporated into the City’s General Plan.
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 base, the Specific Plan will provide detailed guidance for how the site will look and feel. The Specific Plan will guide development of the entire developed area, including Lennar | FivePoint's Development Phase One (approximately 500 acres).
The Reuse Plan and Area Plan underwent extensive environmental review prior to adoption. The Reuse Plan's final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was finalized in 2010, and final EIR Addendum for the Area Plan was completed in 2012.
Reuse Plan and Area Plan Environmental Review Documents
Developed through years of public outreach, the Reuse Plan is a federal document that formally expresses the community’s vision for the future of the former CNWS to the Navy and federal agencies. The final plan reflected ideas developed through creation of numerous alternative concepts.
7. Community Advisory Committee (CAC) - Specific Plan (Initiated 2017)
Formed at the end of 2016, the CAC is modeled after the original CAC formed during earlier phases of the Reuse Project. The CAC serves as an advisory body to provide input and encourage public participating during the process of creating the project's Specific Plan.
8. Community Advisory Committee (CAC) - Reuse and Area Plan (2006-2009)
The original CAC was formed in 2006 to provide input to the Reuse Plan. The Reuse and Area Plan CAC served as a communication link between the Reuse Project and the community-at-large by assisting in targeting outreach to neighborhoods and interest groups, and promoting attendance at workshops and public meetings.
The City completed a competitive process to select Lennar | FivePoint as the Master Developer for Phase One Development, an area of approximately 500 acres. The City expects to competitively bid subsequent phases of the Reuse Project, so multiple developers may be chosen to complete the entire project but all will be responsible for implementing the community's vision and goals articulated in the Area Plan.
Workshop materials, including presentations and comment boards, are in the Document Library. These include materials from a series of community workshops the City hosted in 2007 and 2008 during the Reuse Plan process.
