A PUD Development Plan is consistent <br />with the project site’s Mixed Use General Plan designation, which allows for multi-family <br />residential development at a maximum density of 40 residential units per acre, plus Density <br />Bonus, and consistency with the project site’s PUD-MU zoning classification, which requires <br />conformance with the adopted 2012 Housing Site Development Standards and Design <br />Guidelines. The application was previously reviewed by the Planning Commission as a work <br />session item on March 11, 2020. The application presented herein has been revised to reflect <br />the comments received at the work session. The environmental review and PUD Development <br />Plan portion of the application is now before the Planning Commission for a recommendation <br />to the City Council for consideration. Separately, the Affordable Housing Agreement (AHA) for <br />the project was recommended for approval by the Housing Commission on November 17, <br />2022, to be forwarded to the City Council for review (the Planning Commission is not required <br />or requested to take action on the AHA.) <br /> <br />BACKGROUND <br />The Stoneridge Mall <br />The Stoneridge Mall Regional Shopping Center (Stoneridge Mall) is part of the overall <br />mixed-use retail/office/hotel development located in the northwest area of Pleasanton defined <br />by I-580, I-680, Stoneridge Drive, and Foothill Road.
