Land Use and Development on Stockton Blvd

City staff held an online conversation to address questions about the City’s development process and obtain input on how the Stockton Blvd Plan could address land use or development refinements. City staff provided an overview of the Stockton Blvd Plan, existing tools that regulate land use (including the Broadway-Stockton Special Planning District), and explained how the City reviews development applications. Attendees and City staff discussed types of land uses the community would like to see more of on the corridor, how the City can partner with the community to guide future development, and City staff answered questions about the development process.
