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 Draft 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) (hereinafter called the Project) will be considered by the City Planning Commission at a virtual public hearing on Thursday, September 3, 2020 at 9:00 AM.

The Staff Report, and all related documents, for the Planning Commission hearing will be available at https://riversideca.legistar.com/calendar.aspx on August 21, 2020.
