City's General Plan Amendment Process
Earlier this year, the City Council initiated a process to review several properties in the commercial districts in Cupertino, including the Vallco shopping district, as part of a focused General Plan Amendment. This process includes an extensive community discussion on mobility, urban design and economic development challenges and ideas, and how we can maintain and enhance Cupertino’s great quality of life.

On February 19, 2013, an update on the City’s General Plan Amendment process will be presented to the City Council. In conjunction with this update, the City Council will also consider approval of a budget amendment to fund a portion of the General Plan Amendment process, authorization of the scope of work for the General Plan Amendment and associated environmental impact report (EIR), and authorization for the City to enter into contracts with a planning consultant (MIG) and environmental consultant (The Planning Center/DC&E) to prepare the General Plan Amendment and EIR. The City Council authorized the initiation of the General Plan Amendment process at its meeting of August 21, 2012. The scope of the proposed General Plan Amendment includes an increase in citywide development allocation for commercial and office square footage and hotel rooms, review of key opportunity sites, review of future development opportunities and possible height increases in the Vallco Shopping District, and clean up items in the General Plan.
