The River Road-Santa Clara Neighborhood Plan captures the community vision for growth and development in a manner that respects the area’s unique characteristics and opportunities. This plan will guide decision-making in River Road and Santa Clara for decades to come and focuses on the topic areas of Economic Development, Transportation, Parks and Natural Resources, Land Use, and Community. To reflect the community values, aspirations and priorities expressed during outreach, each topic area includes:
- Vision statements which are aspirational descriptions of the community’s best outcome for how the neighborhood will look, feel and function 20 years and more into the future.
- Goals that translate the vision, describing hopes for the future on a particular idea.
- Policies that will be formally adopted by the City and County to provide a consistent course of action and move the community toward manifesting its goals.
- Actions which are possible strategies identified by the community, captured in the Action Plan, to implement the adopted policies over time. These will require ongoing advocacy and coordination between various partners.
