Document Description
General Plan Update is required to provide direction to the City in its future land use decisions. The current General Plan has been in place for over 15 years, and changes in the City's character and buildout patterns have changed. The City is fast growing, and must plan for residential, commercial and industrial growth in the future. The Downtown Precise Plan was adopted in 1999. Since that time, changes in the types of projects being considered, and design considerations require a comprehensive amendment, including the re-assignment of zoning designations and changes to the design guidelines.
