This proposed McMillan Mesa Major Plan Amendment is to make the Regional Plan’s Future Growth Illustration and related maps consistent with Proposition 413. On November 8, 2016, voters passed Proposition 413 - Initiative for Greater Buffalo Park, which restricted the use of approximately 300 acres of City-owned property on McMillan Mesa to public open space and passive recreation, except for an area reserved for a future veteran’s home. The full details of the amendment can be found in key components of the amendment packet:
