The Action Plan is critical to the long-term success of the River Road-Santa Clara Neighborhood Plan. The purpose of the Action Plan is to capture and catalogue community identified actions that are possible strategies to implement the policies of the River Road-Santa Clara Neighborhood Plan. The Action Plan helps direct efforts to move closer to the community’s vision for its future. The Action Plan will guide implementation of the Neighborhood Plan incrementally over the long-term and will require continued coordination between the City, County, River Road and Santa Clara communities, and other community partners, as well as advocacy for additional resources. The Action Plan includes general budget, feasibility, and timeframe estimates to help inform continued advocacy for resources and City, County and other community partners’ work plans and capital project development.
While some items in the Action Plan may be implemented after Neighborhood Plan adoption, certain land use code and zone changes are proposed to be adopted concurrently with the Neighborhood Plan, such as the River Road-Santa Clara Special Area Zone. Actions fall into one or more of the following project types:
- Land Use Code Amendments or Zone Changes: Require City or County staff resources and are typically implemented through a legislative process with community input and adoption by local decision-makers.
- Public Programs or Projects: Require City or County staff resources and funds from budget processes, capital improvement programs, bond measures or grant funding opportunities.
- Community Partnerships: Requires community volunteers or partnerships between the community, City, County, or other partners.
