In addition to the General Plan, the City maintains several specific plans that address land use and design regulations for certain neighborhoods with special interests or needs.
While the City’s General Plan is the primary guide for growth and development, a Specific Plan focuses on a particular area in more detail, organizing land use and zoning regulations. The purpose of the Temple City Downtown Specific Plan is to create a unique and identifiable downtown area that is economically vibrant and pedestrian-oriented. The City’s Downtown Specific Plan is a community-based revitalization plan that provides a comprehensive set of goals, objectives, land uses, infrastructure improvements, development standards and implementation measures to guide the growth and development of downtown.
The Downtown Specific Plan includes policies that encourage positive commercial development and preserve an attractive business environment in Temple City.
