Scoping Meeting Summary

Aviso en Espanol

The proposed project would be comprised of a new four-story medical office building measuring approximately 60 feet in height to finished roof and approximately 74 feet to top of mechanical screens on the rooftop. The proposed building would provide approximately 160,000 gross square feet of medical office use for specialty outpatient services. Services may include advanced medical and urgent care clinics, and outpatient surgery facilities, support services for urgent care and outpatient surgery including pharmacy, laboratory, imaging facilities, primary care, women's health, pediatric health, optometry, hearing, vision essentials, neurology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology/oncology, infectious diseases, rheumatology, nephrology, pulmonology, sleep lab, orthopedics, podiatry, pain medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation dermatology, health education, telehealth, cafe, and administrative office spaces. The facility would be open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., but urgent care and ancillary functions would operate continuously, without closing. The expected number of on-site staff, at peak, would be approximately 300 persons.

The proposed project would also include the construction of a four-story parking garage across an internal roadway west of the proposed medical office building. It would accommodate five levels of parking, with 730 new vehicle parking spaces to serve the on-site medical uses, including approximately 47 charging stations for electric vehicles and bike lockers. A new driveway would be constructed from Soquel Avenue that facilitates circulation between the medical office building and parking garage. A separate driveway for service vehicles would be constructed. The proposed project would include street frontage improvements along Soquel Avenue, including new pedestrian sidewalks and bicycle facilities, as well as potential off-site intersection improvements. The proposed project would also require on-site and off-site utility and drainage improvements, including new 8-inch sanitary sewer, 8-inch fire, and 4-inch domestic water lines, as well as a new stormwater outfall that would be constructed along Rodeo Creek Gulch, approximately 1,200 feet east of the site.

Sustainability Policy and Regulatory Update Environmental Impact Report (EIR)

Notice of Preparation

Notice of Extended NOP Comment Period

The proposed project is the Santa Cruz County’s Sustainability Policy and Regulatory Update of the County’s General Plan/Local Coastal Program (LCP) and County Code (Sustainability Update). The County’s existing General Plan/LCP was adopted in 1994 with a focus on preserving natural and agricultural resources and limiting urban expansion. After more than 25 years, the General Plan/LCP requires updating to define a more sustainable growth pattern for the future. The broad sustainability goals of the proposed project include updating the goals, objectives, policies, and implementation strategies of the General Plan/LCP and implementing regulations in the County Code to:

  • Incorporate a new planning horizon for population, housing, and employment growth, consistent with Measure J growth management principles and with the Sustainable Community Strategy for the region;
  • Reflect the sustainability vision and guiding principles of the Sustainable Santa Cruz County Plan, as well as the County Strategic Plan goals of Attainable Housing, Reliable Transportation, Dynamic Economy, Sustainable Environment, Comprehensive Health & Safety, and Organizational Excellence;
  • Ensure compatibility with land use and transportation planning principles that support reduction of greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Define new land use designations to increase housing choices and workplace flexibility;
  • Update and modernize the County Code permit procedures and development standards;
  • Adopt Countywide Design Guidelines and special guidelines for the Pleasure Point and Portola Drive Commercial Corridor; and
  • Meet recent state requirements and regulations.

See the Notice of Preparation for additional project information. Visit https://www.sccoplanning.com/sustainabilityupdate to learn more about the proposed General Plan/LCP and County Code amendments and timeline for the project.

Public comment on the scope of the EIR will be accepted through September 4, 2020 at 5 p.m.

A scoping meeting on the project was held on July 21, 2020.

MP Live Oak Associates, L.P. The project proposes to develop a mixed-use project on a 3.65-acre site. The project consists of a two-story commercial building, with a central public plaza located adjacent to Capitola Road, behind which, in the mid-section of the site, would be four 3-story multi-family residential buildings surrounding a private open space. Proposed uses include two community health clinics, 56 affordable apartments, a manager's unit, a community room, homework center, laundry room, restroom, leasing office, bike storage, and maintenance shed. All proposed structures would be within a landscaped setting that includes parking, circulation, open space and a community garden. Public comment will be accepted through May 18, 2020 at 5 p.m.
