Abstract
The proposed project, known as the Santa Maria Downtown Specific Plan, is a document that provides detailed guidelines for the long-term development of the Santa Maria Downtown area. The Downtown Specific Plan is organized into five districts, each of which has detailed guidelines concerning development densities, urban design considerations, and other standards that more fully implement the General Plan's land use designations for the project area. Following is a summary of the project objectives developed for the Downtown Specific Plan. The project objectives may be revised, as the environmental review process continues. 1. Create a pedestrian-friendly City Center with an integrated mix of land uses, woven together by attractive and cohesive street improvements and buildings. 2. Create an entertainment hub of the City, within a variety of activities including movie theaters, restaurants, and other uses. 3. Improve the Town Center Mall with renovated architecture and grounds, and quality shops to attract visitors countywide. 4. Create a place where businesses are eager to locate. 5. Focus pedestrian-oriented retail entertainment uses in the Downtown core, while minimizing the amount of auto-oriented uses. 6. Provide for mixed uses, including residential development over retail stores, to encourage affordable housing while reducing trips and related air emissions.
