Specific Plans


The purpose of a Specific Plan is to provide for the orderly development and improvement of a specific area in the City.  The Specific Plan is established to guide the development of an area that is characterized by its unique location, geographic features, land uses and ownership patterns.

The Specific Plan becomes existing zoning policy, development standards and descriptive maps for that area.  Additionally, the Specific Plan provides for creativity at the individual project level, and at the same time ensures that developments will ultimately combine to create a cohesive community.  Where the Specific Plans are silent, the Huntington Beach Zoning and Subdivision Ordinance will govern.
