The text below is excerpted from the Staff Report for this special meeting.
Recommendation: By motion, accept the General Plan Update Preferred Draft Future Scenario (Preferred Future Scenario) and direct City staff to use the Preferred Future Scenario to prepare the updated General Plan and General Plan Land Use Map, which will be considered by the Council for approval at a future date. The proposed Preferred Future Scenario presented tonight is advisory in nature only, and, if accepted by the Council, it will give direction to staff to prepare the draft General Plan and General Plan Land Use Map to be considered for approval in the future.

Pending Development Applications
There are several pending development applications that were submitted and deemed complete by the City prior to the community-wide discussion of the Draft Preferred Scenario. Most notably of these applications are the Vallejo Marine Terminal (VMT)/Orcem project in South Vallejo and the proposed commercial (gas station/fast food) project on a 1.5+/- acre portion of the “Lee Property” on Columbus Parkway at the eastern terminus of Admiral Callaghan Way. Consideration of a future land use designation on these properties will take place once the applications have been processed under the current General Plan and Zoning Code.
Revised Draft Preferred Future Scenario –
Accepted by GPWG on February 8th 2016 Based on the GPWG, EVC, and Planning Commission recommendations and the existing applications, agreements and leases described above, staff modified the Draft Preferred Future Scenario and presented it to the GPWG, EVC, and Planning Commission at a joint meeting on December 14, 2015. At that meeting, the GPWG and EVC affirmed the Draft Preferred Scenario previously recommended on November 23, 2015. A quorum of the Planning Commission was not present at the December 14th meeting, so did not participate in the vote to affirm the previous recommendation.
City staff continued to work with the GPWG to facilitate a unified vision and develop a preferred scenario that recognized properties under current development review as well as those under a long-term lease with the City. City staff held two subsequent meetings with a GPWG subcommittee on January 25, 2016 and on February 8, 2016. At the February 8th meeting, a unified recommendation on the Draft Preferred Future Scenario was prepared, which is before the City Council tonight for review and acceptance.
