Town Of Moraga

MCSP Citizens Advisory Committee

The purpose of the Moraga Center Specific Plan (MCSP) Implementation project is to develop code amendments, policies and design standards to more effectively implement the adopted Specific Plan, address potential inconsistencies between the Municipal Code and the Specific Plan, and avoid ambiguities and uncertainty in implementing Specific Plan policies. The project intends to close the gap between the Specific Plan’s policy guidance and the more specific regulation provided by zoning standards and requirements. 

Moraga Center Specific Plan adopted in 2010.
