Stanford Community Plan Moving Forward
While Stanford withdrew its updated GUP application last fall, the County is moving forward with updating its Stanford Community Plan and is beginning the process of community outreach, including meetings with local stakeholders and neighborhood groups.

The Community Plan update will consist of background, data, and policy updates to the seven elements of the Community Plan: Growth and Development, Land Use, Housing, Circulation, Open Space, Resource Conservation, and Health and Safety. The project will also include preparation of a Municipal Services Study, Childcare Study, and a Graduate Student Housing Affordability Study to inform the updates to the Community Plan.

Visit the project website at for more information or to sign up for updates. Also, the CTRA will be organizing a neighborhood meeting with the planners soon.
