On March 1, 2018, the El Camino Real Corridor Specific Plan Advisory Committee (ECRPAC) held its seventh meeting to continue discussing development standards and design guidelines for the ECR corridor. The project team provided a presentation and guided a discussion on topics including appropriate uses along the corridor, district names and defining characteristics, using a development pool/community benefit concept to allow greater density in exchange for desired amenities, and design strategies to ensure minimal impact on adjacent properties. Feedback from the ECRPAC will allow the project team to further develop the concepts and standards that will make up the draft Specific Plan, which will be reviewed by the ECRPAC at a future meeting.

On December 5, 2017, the El Camino Real Corridor Specific Plan Advisory Committee (ECRPAC) held its sixth meeting to begin discussion on possible development standards and design guidelines for the ECR corridor. Based on the City Council selected land use alternative and draft vision statement for the Specific Plan, the project team provided a presentation on topics including node/district identity, distribution of density/uses along the corridor, and design strategies to ensure minimal impact on adjacent properties. Feedback from the ECRPAC will allow the project team to further refine these concepts for review by the ECRPAC at a future meeting.
Now that the City Council has selected a preferred alternative to study (on August 15, 2017), efforts are underway to begin analysis and prepare an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the El Camino Real Corridor Specific Plan (ECR Plan). One of the first steps in any EIR process is to issue a Notice of Preparation (NOP), which informs agencies and the community that the environmental analysis for the project is set to begin and gives everyone an opportunity to provide comments on the scope of the analysis. The NOP for the ECR Plan can be found here.
The public comment period (30-day minimum) to receive input on the scope of the ECR Plan EIR was from Monday, October 30, 2017 to Friday, December 1, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.
A Public Scoping Meeting was held on Thursday, November 9, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at the City Hall Council Chambers, 456 West Olive Avenue in Sunnyvale.
Thu, August 24, 2017 | 6:30 - 9:00 p.m.
The topic of the meeting was Circulation and Multimodal Access. The project team presented the possible strategies the El Camino Real Plan Advisory Committee (ECRPAC) and community can consider incorporating into the ECR Plan to improve safety and access on the corridor for different modes of travel (pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles). These strategies are based on existing City goals and policies and the input received from staff and from the community through the pop-up workshops, community workshop and previous ECRPAC meetings.
