On July 16, 2014 the Roseville City Council re-initiated the Placer Ranch Specific Plan (PRSP) process. The Specific Plan was originally accepted for processing in 2007 but was put on hold in 2008 by the prior property owner. Westpark LLC submitted an application on August 12, 2014 to process a General Plan Amendment, Specific Plan Amendment, Rezone and Sphere of Influence Amendment, Annexation and Development Agreement for the 2,213 acre property. The proposed land use plan could include approximately 6,000 residential units in a mix of low, medium and high densities. The land use plan also includes 6 million square feet of non-residential uses including commercial, office and industrial uses, elementary and middle school sites, parks and open space.
The project has always proposed to establish a 300-acre satellite campus of California State University of Sacramento. At build-out, the university would accommodate 25,000 students and become an independent Cal State campus.
Because of the project’s regional significance, Westpark requested that staffs from both the City and Placer County engage in a collaboration process. Starting in December 2013, the collaboration process aimed to achieve high-level consensus and issue identification for the planning area. The collaboration process identified:
- Planning adjacency issues,
- Infrastructure constraints,
- Fiscal impacts to the respective agencies,
- Connectivity to the abutting Sunset Industrial Area and the City of Roseville,
- Management and operation polices at the land fill authority.
A link to the conceptual plan resulting from the collaboration process is provided below.
As currently proposed, the project includes 2,213-acres located in unincorporated Placer County, immediately west and south of Placer County’s Sunset Industrial Area, south of the Western Regional Sanitary Landfill (WRSL), and north of the existing City limits, and east of the Amoruso Specific Plan that is also being processed by the City.
The conceptual land use plan includes the following features:
- A California State University campus (300 acres), initially as a satellite campus of CSU Sacramento, but anticipated to become a standalone CSU campus accommodating 25,000 students.
- A portion of the Placer Parkway highway ultimately connecting US Hwy 99 and CA Hwy 65.
- Buffering land uses adjacent to the Western Regional Sanitary Landfill located north of the property at Fiddyment Road.
- Employment uses to the east adjacent to unicorporated, Placer County’s Sunset Industrial Area, including office, R&D and manufacturing uses.
- University Center or Town Center situated between the CSU campus and the employment center.
- Residential uses to the western portion of the property (approximately 6,000 units – low, medium and high density), a portion of which may include an age restricted neighborhood.
- Regional commercial at future interchanges with Placer Parkway.
- Roadway connections to existing facilities including: Sunset Boulevard, Foothills Boulevard., Fiddyment Road, and Woodcreek Oaks Boulevard.
- One to Two elementary schools and one middle school.
- Park facilities together with open space and conservation areas.
The typical specific plan process usually takes 18-months to two years. Community Workshops, Commission and Council meetings and availability of Environmental and Specific Plan documents will be posted as information becomes available.
