Placer Ranch Specific Plan
On October 17, 2007, the City received a letter from Placer Ranch, Inc., requesting that the City Council consider processing the Placer Ranch Specific Plan in the City of Roseville. The letter further requested that the project ultimately be annexed into the city.
On November 14, 2007 the City Council recommended that staff begin processing the Placer Ranch Specific Plan (PRSP) and the associated environmental analysis in accordance with the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and to concurrently process a sphere of influence amendment and annexation of the PRSP project area.
As currently proposed, the project includes 2,213-acres located in unincorporated Placer County, immediately west and south of the County’s Sunset Industrial area, south of the Western Regional Sanitary Landfill (WRSL), and north of the West Roseville Specific Plan, North Roseville Specific Plan, and the North Industrial Planning Area.
The draft land use plan includes the following features:
• A 297-acre California State University Sacramento branch campus that would accommodate up to 25,000 full-time equivalent students;
• 5,000 Residential units at a variety of densities;
• 1,740 Student and faculty units associated with the university;
• Placer Parkway; • Commercial, office, and light industrial land uses that could accommodate up to nine million square feet;
• Parks and open space; and,
• Two elementary schools and one middle school. Information regarding community meetings, workshops and other events will be posted as information becomes available.
