Montclair prides itself on being "development friendly." This is evidenced by the variety of residential, commercial, and industrial projects currently underway in the City, some of which are illustrated below.
MONTCLAIR PLACE DISTRICT SPECIFIC PLAN PROJECT
DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT
The proposed Montclair Place District Specific Plan (MPDSP) represents the vision for approximately 104 acres of land that includes the existing Montclair Place Mall and surrounding commercial properties as defined by maps within the EIR document. The MPDSP would assign and create new land use zones for parcels within the Plan Area and provide development standards and architectural guidelines to guide development in the Plan Area through 2040. A key feature of the MPDSP would provide for the demolition of all or a portion of the existing Mall, some or all appurtenant free-standing outbuildings, and portions of the existing surface parking lots and parking structure to construct a pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use downtown district, with structured parking facilities through a series of planned phases.
The Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) prepared for the project evaluates potential environmental effects associated with the proposed MPDSP. The EIR is available for a 45-day public comment period that commences on July 10, 2020 and concludes on August 24, 2020. Please submit comments on the environmental analysis in the Draft EIR to the address provided below no later than 6:00 p.m. on August 24, 2020.
