The West Broadway Specific Plan (WBSP) area is 292-acres and is generally bounded by the Sacramento River on the west; U.S. Highway 50 and Broadway on the north; Muir Way and 5th Street on the east; and 4th Avenue on the south, as shown on the project map.

The WBSP area is characterized by a patchwork of large parcels with poorly connected, disparate land uses such as industrial sites and public housing complexes. The WBSP provides a framework (goals, policies, guidelines, and development standards) for integrating new development with existing uses and integrating the various disparate subareas together into a more livable neighborhood. The WBSP also streamlines the housing development process and provides a vision for future riverfront planning and a destination for community events and new recreational opportunities. 

The WBSP will help create a more walkable neighborhood, improve multimodal connectivity, and disperse and slow traffic. By increasing housing opportunities near the urban core, it will help reduce long commutes and dependence on cars, reduce the per capita use of fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions to help meet air quality standards.
