Copper Trails Specific Plan

The Copper Trails Specific Plan (CTSP) involves the potential for annexation and urban development of approximately 535 acres of unincorporated area adjacent to the City of Ceres; future development within the CTSP area may result in up to 2,392 dwelling units and 1.1 million square feet of regional commercial development. Additional development may also occur within an adjacent 146 acres of unincorporated land that would be annexed to the City together with the CTSP area. The project and its probable environmental effects are described in more detail in an expanded version of the NOP, which is available for download or review at the City’s website.

The City of Ceres has determined that an EIR will be prepared without preparation of an Initial Study as permitted in Section 15060(d) of the State CEQA Guidelines.

If you would like to discuss the project or the environmental impacts that should be addressed in the EIR, the Ceres Planning Commission will conduct a public scoping meeting on October 16, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. at the Ceres Community Center, 2701 4th Street, Ceres, CA.
