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) is available for public review! This Draft Plan covers the Northside Neighborhood in the City of Riverside, and the Pellissier Ranch area in the southern portion of the City of Colton. The plan also includes a portion of the City of Riverside’s Sphere of Influence in the County of Riverside.

Also available for review is the Northside Specific Plan’s Draft Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR).

The Project Team has been working on these documents since the Notice of Preparation (NOP) comment period ended in April 2019, and we would like your input! The Draft Plan proposes to guide the area’s land use, mobility, and environmental decisions to improve the Northside’s vitality, and to integrate open space and future growth.

The comment period for the Draft Plan and PEIR is open for 60 days, starting on Thursday March 26, and ending on Tuesday May 26, 2020. Please note that an extra day was added because Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 25. Comments can be submitted by mail or e-mail.
