Westlake Village Business Park Specific Plan
In October of 2009, the City Council contracted with The Arroyo Group to prepare a study on the potential for improvements to development within the Business Park Area north of the 101 Freeway and west of Lindero Canyon Road. The City Council also created an Ad-hoc Committee to work with The Arroyo Group. The study evaluated a number of technical areas, including real estate valuation, economic viability, land use compatibility, infrastructure adequacy, landscape and open space considerations, and parking and traffic constraints.
A series of meetings in 2010 and 2011 were held with a variety of stakeholders, including property owners in the area, commercial real estate professionals, and representatives of homeowners associations within the City. These meetings were instrumental in obtaining input into possible directions that future development could take. In response, The Arroyo Group and the City Council's Ad-hoc Committee developed a number of potential development alternatives for consideration.
In May of 2011, the Ad-hoc Committee recommended a preferred development alternative to the City Council, at which time the City Council directed staff and The Arroyo Group to proceed with preparation of a Specific Plan utilizing the preferred development concept.
The Arroyo Group has prepared a draft Specific Plan, while sub-consultant BonTerra Consulting has begun the preliminary work for an Environmental Impact Report on the Specific Plan. A formal project description will be identified, a Draft Specific Plan has been released for public review, but is currently being revised to address traffic concerns. The current Draft Specific Plan can be downloaded HERE.
Questions regarding the Specific Plan, the Environmental Impact Report, and the process for review of these documents, may be directed to the Planning Department.
