Get Involved

Suisun City residents, business owners and policymakers have provided valuable input on the basic principles that will be the foundation for the Downtown Waterfront Specific Plan update. City staff planners and consultants are drafting the plan, which will be brought to the Planning Commission and City Council for their amendments and approval.

Project / Process Background

In urban planning parlance, a Specific Plan contains and describes the development principles and desired outcomes for a defined part of the City.  It is consistent with the principles of the General Plan and the Zoning Ordinance, but provides additional guidance specific to that area.

In Suisun City, we have a Specific Plan that encompasses the Downtown / Waterfront District.  The Plan was amended in 1999 to help preserve the historic character of the original areas of Suisun City while allowing redevelopment and modernization consistent with 21st century community expectations and needs.

It’s been 15 years since the Plan was comprehensively amended, and it’s time for an update to make sure the principles and guidelines in the Plan are still on target and meeting community needs.  A key identified need is to expand the plan area to include property near the Suisun City Train Depot, the future development of which will impact the entire Waterfront District.
