Study efforts began in late 2014 for the Downtown Commercial Core planning project. Early in the process, interviews were conducted with City leaders, residents, business owners, and community groups, and three community workshops were held. Feedback from members of the public was collected at each of the workshops. The community indicated a desire for a new planning and regulatory framework to enhance and attract pedestrian-friendly activities to support and strengthen the City's historic commercial core.
This new planning and regulatory framework comes in the form of a Specific Plan (DCCSP). The Specific Plan is accompanied by a Program Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The Specific Plan and EIR are also available for public review during regular business hours at the City of Tustin Community Development Department at 300 Centennial Way, Tustin, CA 92780.
The City Council adopted the Downtown Commercial Core Specific Plan on July 3, 2018.
