The City adopted an amendment to the Lakeside Specific Plan in 2016 in conjunction with a hotel and residential project on a vacant, 8.83-acre parcel at 1250 Lakeside Drive. The site is the sole parcel in the Lakeside Specific Plan (LSP), which was adopted in 2005.

Apartments are under construction. The hotel is in plan check. But the project is on hold due to pandemic-related hotel industry uncertainties. May 4, City Council began a Specific Plan Amendment study to amend the Lakeside Specific Plan. Its purpose is to analyze community benefits tied to changing the timing of the hotel construction. Amendments will be presented to the Planning Commission on May 24 and City Council on June 8.
The Lakeside Specific Plan (LSP) amendment and mixed-use hotel/residential development project was approved by the City Council on December 13, 2016. For the amended Lakeside Specific Plan, staff report and minutes, see Documents tab.

In 2005, the City adopted the Lakeside Specific Plan (LSP) to facilitate the development of a mixed-use hotel and residential project for the 8.83-acre property at 1250 Lakeside Drive. The site was occupied by the Four Points Sheraton hotel at the time. The Specific Plan provides general land use and design criteria for a creative revitalization of the site as a mixed-use hotel and residential development. The City also adopted a Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) and approved a Special Development Permit and Parcel Map for the 253-room hotel and 244-unit residential project in 2005. After receiving project approval, the property owner demolished the Four Points Sheraton hotel, but the approved project was never built. The site has been vacant since 2006.
