Sunset Area Plan - Placer Ranch Specific Plan

Placer County is proposing to update the 1997 Sunset Industrial Area Plan. The proposed plan update, now called the Sunset Area Plan, includes the proposed Placer Ranch Specific Plan. The County has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the project to satisfy the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) (Public Resources Code [PRC] Section 21000 et seq.) and serves as the lead agency for CEQA compliance.

 

Project Description

 

The SAP identifies a higher density mix of labor- and employment-intensive uses with an emphasis on innovation and creativity. Nested within the SAP, the proposed Placer Ranch Specific Plan (PRSP) includes a mixed-use town center, commercial and office uses, a university site, and a diverse housing mix.

 

Project Location 

 

The Sunset Area Plan (SAP), which includes the Placer Ranch Specific Plan (PRSP) project site, encompasses 8,497 acres located in unincorporated south Placer County. The Plan area covers 13.9 square miles between the cities of Rocklin to the east, Roseville to the south, Lincoln to the north, and unincorporated Placer County to the west. The Plan area is located immediately west of State Route (SR) 65 which connects to Interstate 80 in the south and SR 99 to the north.

 

The proposed PRSP area includes 2,213 acres in the southern portion of the Sunset Area Plan. The southern boundary of the PRSP area is contiguous with the existing Roseville City limits, and the northern boundary is defined, in part, by the existing alignment of Sunset Boulevard West, west of Fiddyment Road.
