Feedback to date

At the Oct. 19 Planning Commission meeting, the Commission confirmed the items city staff will revise or study for potential revision as it prepares the third  draft of the Village and Barrio Master Plan, including: 

  • Making the overall tone, content and graphics more Carlsbad-specific and in line with the community’s character.
  • Eliminating the proposed building height increase to 55 feet and evaluating building story and height limits overall in the plan area.
  • Revising design guidelines so they are easier to understand and have more “teeth” so city staff, the Planning Commission and City Council can more easily ensure proposed projects are consistent with the community’s character.
  • Drafting an implementation plan for public improvements that identifies, in general terms, time frames, feasibility and constraints, potential costs and funding sources.

View the approved Planning Commission resolution for the list of confirmed changes city staff will make or consider for revision. 

The next draft of the master plan will be available in January 2018.
