General Plan

The General Plan is a policy document that serves as a comprehensive blueprint to guide the long-term development of the community. It includes various elements, or chapters, that address specific issues facing local quality of life: land use, transportation, housing, noise, safety, open space, and conservation.  The City’s General Plan was last updated in 1987, with the exception of the Housing Element which was updated in 2013 as required by state law.  A comprehensive General Plan update is now underway.
