Affected area includes 1st to 38th, Salinas river to Vine

PASO ROBLES, CA, January 19, 2022 – The City of Paso Robles is holding a virtual public workshop on Thursday, January 20, 2022 to discuss a potential boundary change and zoning changes for the existing Uptown/Town Center Specific Plan. 

This specific plan encompasses 1,100 acres of urbanized land on the historic west side of the city, between 1st and 38th Streets and between the Salinas River and Vine Street.

The workshop is being hosted by the Housing Constraints and Opportunities Committee. The boundary change would provide the City the opportunity to increase infill housing. Some of the issues being discussed at Thursday’s workshop include Zoning changes from R-1/R-2/OP to T3-N or T3-F which offers more flexibility with regard to development standards; encouraging more Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and Rear Yard Dwellings; and the extent of the proposed Uptown/Town Center Specific Plan boundary changes. No formal action is being taken. Input gathered at this study session will contribute to a report to the Planning Commission and City Council.
