In order to ensure that the final ECR Plan sets the stage for the type of changes that have the broadest community support, we have extended the time for your input.

Sunnyvale wants to know what you think about the three land use alternatives proposed for the El Camino Real Corridor. Which one do you prefer?

The three options range from a focus on commercial development, just like in the existing 2007 Precise Plan, to a focus on allowing more residential development and to one that is a mixture of the two.

Please take a few minutes to learn more and add your voice:

Thank you to all those who participated in our topics related to Smokefree Sunnyvale.

The City of Sunnyvale recently updated its smoking law to protect residents from exposure to secondhand smoke.

Smoking is now prohibited in multi-family housing, within 25 feet of doors and windows of buildings, in outdoor dining areas, and in several other outdoor areas.

Please take a few minutes to review the three land use alternatives and provide your comments and preference.  Your feedback will be provided to the City Council in February/March, along with input received at the pop-up and community workshops, to inform their direction on which land use alternative should be studied further, refined and included in the ECR Plan.

Dear Community Member,

Thank you for your interest and involvement with development of the Horizon 2035 Land Use and Transportation Element (LUTE) of the General Plan! The LUTE covers a wide range of topics that guide land use and transportation inSunnyvale over the next 20 to 30 years.

I’m writing now to let you know that both the Draft LUTE and its Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) are available for public review and comment. Both documents are available on the hosted project website. Please excuse any duplication in sharing this information; in an effort to reach out to everyone who is interested, we are sharing this information on several distribution lists.

Pursuant to the California Public Resources Code and the California Environmental Quality Act Guidelines (CEQA Guidelines), the City of Sunnyvale is the Lead Agency for the proposed project. For more information on the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the EIR process visit the City website. The Draft EIR and its technical studies are available for the CEQA required 45- day public review. Please see the Notice of Availability for further details.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact us at horizon2035@sunnyvale.ca.gov.

Sincerely, Jeff Henderson, Project Planner Trudi Ryan, Director, Community Development Department

Thank you for being involved as the City finalizes the Horizon 2035 Land Use and Transportation Element (LUTE) of the General Plan. The LUTE covers a wide range of topics that guide land use and transportation in Sunnyvale over the next 20 to 30 years.

Through Open City Hall, we’ve asked community members to share input on some of the major components of the proposed LUTE. This period of online public input is coming to a close shortly.  BUT if you haven’t participated yet, there’s still time. These topics will close on April 30, 2016.

All four LUTE topics are available here.  Please participate in as many as you’d like. The input received so far is summarized here.  You can also view results in a more interactive format here.  

In the next few months, the City Council and the Planning Commission will review the LUTE and consider proposed changes in light of public comments.  Hearing dates will be sent to you in a future email and posted on the project website. Additional comments on the LUTE will be accepted at the hearing, or by email at horizon2035@sunnyvale.ca.gov.

Again, thank you for being engaged in this process and helping to shape the future of Sunnyvale!
