Welcome to the

Northside Specific Plan!
An interjurisdictional project of the City of Riverside and City of Colton

A new plan to guide future land use, open space and community design in the Northside area is now underway. The Northside, one of Riverside’s earliest settled neighborhoods, is known for its history, environmental resources, and strong community connections. The community will be involved in shaping and forming the new plan, building on the community’s Our Riverside, Our Neighborhood (ORON) ideas and strategies. Land owners in areas where change could occur will also be asked for input. The more people involved in the process, the better the new plan will be!

To improve the website, we moved the General Comment feature to the bottom of each page, located next to the Project Contact Information.

The City of Riverside is pleased to announce that the City Council is expected to hear the Northside Specific Plan (Draft Plan), associated changes to the City’s General Plan, Zoning Code and Downtown Specific Plan, and the Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at an evening public hearing.

The Staff Report and all related documents including the Draft Plan, related amendments and PEIR will be available 12 days prior to the hearing at https://riversideca.legistar.com/calendar.aspx.

Public participation is welcomed and encouraged. The public hearing will be livestreamed at www.engageriverside.com and comments may be submitted to the City Clerk at City_Clerk@riversideca.gov. Telephone comments may also be submitted during the hearing by calling 951-826-8600.

Thank you to everyone for your input that has led us to the Plan being considered by City Council.

We look forward to hearing from you!
