Sunset Industrial Area Plan Update

Current Status

The Sunset Area Plan is well underway, and on Tuesday, June 16, 2015, staff provided the County Board of Supervisors with an update and some preliminary Findings. You may access the Staff Report at:

The full Opportunities and Constraints Report will be completed this summer, and will be available for public review at that time. We are planning on holding a Community Workshop during the month of August to discuss the report and receive public input. Details regarding the Workshop will be forthcoming. Thank you for your on-going interest in this important project!

Plan Update Purpose

The overall objective of the Sunset Industrial Area (SIA) Plan update is to re-envision and re-brand the SIA to fully implement the County's long-term vision for the Plan Area. By designing an overall vision for the SIA, the County intends to attract large mixed-use developments, commercial uses, universities, industrial manufacturing, corporate campuses, institutions, and entertainment venues that encourage businesses with primary wage jobs to locate in the SIA. The Plan update will examine market conditions; assess existing business retention and expansion; generate an overall economic analysis; identify infrastructure needs and infrastructure finance alternatives; develop a new land use diagram, and produce a constraints and opportunities analysis.

Plan Area

The SIA is an 8,900-acre area in unincorporated western Placer County, located west of the Highway 65 corridor and situated between the Cities of Lincoln to the north, Rocklin to the east, and Roseville to the south.

Public Workshop

A public workshop to introduce the project was held on August 26, 2014. We encourage you to attend future public workshops as your insight will be valuable in this planning process.
