Unique Challenges:
The Specific Plan for College Park involved numerous development interests and public agencies, including San Joaquin Delta Community College, as well as existing residents. An aqueduct and a freeway adjacent to the site and major gas pipelines, electrical transmission lines and stormwater drainage through the site were significant constraints on the land plan. Achieving a jobs/housing balance within the Specific Plan area while accommodating a college campus not envisioned in the original Master Plan posed an additional challenge.
