School & Parks-related Specific Plan Amendments

March 1 & March 15, 2005: Sports Park Relocation and Addition of a Pedestrian/bike Overpass (Resolutions 4616, 4617, and 4621)

  • The Spring Lake Specific Plan ("SLSP") had initially identified a 34-acre sports park on the East side of State Route 113. On September 21, 2004 the City Council adopted the Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Master Plan that conceptually designated a 40-acre sports park on the West side of 113 to allow co-development of the sports park and community park. The SLSP was subsequently amended consistent with the Master Plan and the City acquired 57 acres of land. Amendments also provided for a bike and pedestrian overcrossing over 113.

December 14, 2010: Rezone of a school site and relocation of the neighborhood commercial site to the south (Resolution 5160)

  • The changes include relocating the 8-acre park and 2-acre neighborhood commercial areas south to the northwest corner of Harry Lorenzo Avenue and Farmer’s Central Road, and eliminating the 10-acre elementary school site.  The application also includes the elimination of the R-5 zoning and increasing the R-8 and R-15 acreages. The Woodland Joint Unified School District Governing Board determined, by vote in February 2010, that the elementary school site is not necessary based upon a School Need Report and has released the site for other development.

March 19, 2013: Rezone a school site to residential; north of Heritage Parkway, south of Jack Slaven Park (Resolution 6118)

  • The school site was released for development by the Woodland Joint Unified School district.  The Woodland Joint Unified School District Governing Board determined by vote, April 14, 2011, that the elementary school site in question was not necessary based upon a School Needs Report and has released the site for other development. 

February 3, 2015: Rezone commercial to residential, rezone R-15 to R-8, and reconfigure park location (Resolution 6383)

  • The amendment provided for the neighborhood commercial rezone to R-8 residential.  The site was aligned to provide lots fronting on the Harry Lorenzo and Farmers Central Road and repositioned the park away from the busy intersection.

  • The amendment shifted the location of the Central Park, Fire Station and Neighborhood Commercial site.  Also eliminated R-15, increased R-25, and R-4 land area.
