What's after the Charrette 2? June 4th study session.

City staff and city's consultant team will present a report of the work done so far to City Council at a study session on Monday, June 4th at 4 pm, Community Hall. From there, this will assist our team in concisely working on next steps. 

What is a Specific Plan?

The specific plan creates objective standards and rules of development, such as heights, massing, building locations, public spaces and location of uses. The plan would include graphics to illustrate the standards and rules. In creating a specific plan, the community, the City and its consultants are not designing the project. Like the Cupertino Municipal Code, which contains development rules for other neighborhoods, these rules would apply to the current owner of Vallco and any future owner or owners.  It helps the city prepare for the future, regardless of ownership.

Your comments and questions welcomed

The first draft of specific plan program and design options, presented on 4/13/2018, are now posted on the project website: 

Each option requests comments and questions, which will help us refine the drafts for charrette 2 and create information for frequently asked questions, as the dialogue and work needed continues.


Why is the city's specific plan process more important than ever, even though the city received an SB 35 application from the developer?

The Specific Plan creates an ongoing opportunity for negotiation of design details, a development agreement and community amenities. There is no path for negotiation in the SB 35 application process. Community members are encouraged to continue to stay engaged in the design and planning process of the Vallco Special Area.
