PROJECT NAME:

Mather Field

 

CPAC RECOMMENDATION:

The revised project was presented to the Cordova Community Planning Advisory Council (CPAC) on May 19, 2016.  The Cordova CPAC previously recommended approval of the original project in June 2013, subject to recommended conditions detailed in Attachment 1. At the Cordova CPAC’s May 19, 2016 hearing, staff presented the revised project. No formal vote was taken, but the Cordova CPAC reiterated their previous recommendation regarding the preservation of open space and recreational lands.  At the time of the May 19, 2016 Cordova CPAC hearing, the preferred alignment for Zinfandel Drive was not finalized, so total land use acreages could not be finalized.  Staff will present the final land use acreages detailed in this staff report at the Cordova CPAC’s June 16 meeting, and the Cordova CPAC’s recommendation will be included in the staff report for the Board of Supervisors July 26, 2016 hearing on the revised project.
