General Plan and Housing Element

2030 General Plan

On July 10, 2012, the City Council adopted the 2030 General Plan, a comprehensive update to the City's 1992 General Plan. The 2030 General Plan is the guiding document for the City's physical development and preservation. It includes goals, policies and graphics that convey a long-term vision and guide local decision-making to achieve that vision. The General Plan is the foundation for zoning regulations, subdivisions, and public works plans. It also addresses other issues related to the City’s physical environment, such as noise, open space, and safety.

The Environmental Planning Commission reviews the implementation of the 2030 General Plan on a regular (annual) basis through the action items. The City Council also reviews progress on the 2030 General Plan during the annual goal-setting and budget process.

Housing Element

The Housing Element identifies the City’s current housing conditions and future housing needs while outlining initiatives to improve available housing for populations with various income levels within the City. The current plan covers the 2015 to 2023 period and is updated every 8 years as mandated by the State Department of Housing and Community Development.

Greenhouse Gas Reduction Program

The Greenhouse Gas Reduction Program (GGRP) implements the 2030 General Plan policies relating to climate change and mitigates the 2030 General Plan's greenhouse gas (GHG) impacts. It contains a baseline community-wide GHG emissions inventory, emissions projections, GHG reduction targets and strategies, and a monitoring program. It will be updated on a regular basis to reflect General Plan implementation and new best management practices.
