Town Of Moraga

MCSP Citizens Advisory Committee

The Moraga Center Specific Plan (MCSP) Implementation Project concerns the development of 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. A Moraga Center Specific Plan (MCSP) Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) has been formed to provide input to the Planning Commission and Town Council on the final zoning and development standards for the 187-acre Moraga Center Specific Plan Area. The goal of this project is to implement the adopted land use goals of the MCSP by providing Moraga with zoning for potential development of a revitalized retail core, public space amenities, and a variety of housing types. The committee will meet at least three times over the course of 6-9 months. The composition of the MCSP CAC includes commissioners, residents, property owners, business owners and representatives from various stakeholder groups.  

Citizen Advisory Committee #1 - July 8, 2019

The Moraga Center Specific Plan (MCSP) Implementation Project Citizens’ Advisory Committee (CAC) held its first meeting on Monday, July 8, at the St. Mary’s College (SMC) Soda Center. The focus of the meeting was to introduce the project team and the various members of the CAC and describe the background, process, and timeline for completion of the development standards and zoning provisions that will implement the MCSP. The role of the CAC was also discussed in the upcoming review of several design scenarios that will be presented to outline the vision for development of the Moraga Center.
