85/15 Plan - Measure A
Agua Hedionda South Shore Specific Plan

The Agua Hedionda South Shore Specific Plan was proposed May 12, 2015, by three Carlsbad residents through a citizen-led initiative sponsored by Caruso Affiliated. The plan would change land uses on a 203.4 acre privately owned property located east of I-5, between the south shore of the Agua Hedionda Lagoon and Cannon Road. The major land use changes being proposed are:

1) Reduce the amount of land where commercial-retail development is allowed from 48.3 acres to 26.7 acres.

2) Increase the amount of land designated as permanent open space from 155.1 acres to 176.7 acres.
