Scotts Valley Town Center Specific Plan EIR Section 4.8 Land Use
Existing Land Uses. The Scotts Valley Town Center Specific Plan area is located along
Mount Hermon Road and Kings Village Road, west of Highway 17. The area encompasses approximately 58 acres radiating from Mount Hermon Road northward to Blue Bonnet Lane, and between Kings Village Road and Sky Park Drive. Land uses in the vicinity of the project area include retail stores, restaurants, movie theaters, gas stations, and recreational areas. Commercial development lines the two main arterial roadways, Mount Hermon Road and Scotts Valley Drive. Residential uses are primarily located along the two main arterial roadways, but situated behind commercial street side frontages. Scotts Valley Middle School is the nearest public school to the proposed Specific Plan area. Land uses immediately adjacent to the Specific Plan area include commercial retail, medium to high density residential, and public/quasi public uses, which includes Skypark Park. Approximately 15 acres of the proposed project site is undeveloped; this consists primarily of the land formerly used as Skypark Airport.
b. Regulatory Setting. The proposed Specific Plan area includes the following General Plan land use designations, as shown in Figure 2-3:
Commercial Service (CS)
Commercial Shopping Center (CSC)
Public/Quasi Public (P/QP)
The majority of the proposed Specific Plan area is currently designated for commercial uses. The area primarily includes Commercial Service (CS), Commercial Shopping Center (CSC), and to a lesser extent public/quasi public designations (P/QP). The land to the east of Kings Village Road is predominately designated as CSC, whereas land to the west is designated as CS. The parcel located on the east corner of Kings Village Road and Bluebonnet Lane is designated as P/QP.
The land use description for CS land use designation is as follows:
