SUNRISE MALL: A REGIONAL LANDMARK & VITAL ECONOMIC ENGINE
Sunrise Mall has served an important role in the City prior to incorporation. Generations of residents and visitors have enjoyed the mall since 1972. The mall has been and continues to be an important community destination.
The City recognizes the importance the mall plays within the community and wants to ensure the mall continues to be a destination locally and regionally. Planning for the future of the mall, given the changing retail environment, is a key step to ensuring the continued success of the mall.
On July 11, 2019, the City Council adopted a General Plan Amendment, requiring the development of a Specific Plan for the Sunrise Mall Property to ensure a comprehensive planning approach to the future redevelopment of the mall.
October 2019, the City started development of the Sunrise Tomorrow Specific Plan to ensure a comprehensive planning and community engagement process would help shape the future of Sunrise Mall.
The Sunrise Tomorrow Specific Plan will include the development of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The EIR is intended to analyze and disclose the potential impacts of the proposed development on the environment. The EIR will be prepared over the next several months and upon completion be available for review and comment.
