The proposed Placer County Government Center (PCGC) Master Plan Update includes a campus vision, development context and guiding principles, site and facilities assessment, facility utilization study, transportation and circulation planning, infrastructure and utilities planning, landscape and open space planning, an economic development study, site and facilities planning, zero net energy and water planning, a phasing and implementation plan, and a program level Environmental Impact Report (EIR) with project level reviews for a potential new Health and Human Services building and a Multifamily/Workforce Housing facility. Collectively, these planning components provide a guide to implementing campus projects over time.
In addition to the primary focus of future development of Placer County facility functions and supporting infrastructure at the government center, the PCGC Master Plan Update evaluates the County’s Fulweiler Avenue services for a potential future relocation to the PCGC. This consolidation of services concept was integral to the CFMP and is included as part of the proposed master plan project.
Another significant planning element is the determination of potential private development areas at the campus. Departmental assessments and facility utilization studies have yielded anticipated County site and building needs into the future. With this County need projected, potential residential, commercial, and mixed-use development areas are now identified in the proposed campus plan.
The Draft PCGC Master Plan Update also evaluates the original DeWitt General Hospital buildings at the government center. A thorough assessment of all existing buildings, development of County facility space needs into the future and an updated Cultural Resource analysis have helped to inform the proposed campus plan direction.
