Document Description
The proposed project analyzed in this Draft Program EIR is the comprehensively updated City of San Marcos General Plan. The City's General Plan has not been updated since 1988. The updated program builds upon the vision established in the City's existing General Plan and responds to the evolving needs and objectives of the community. The updated General Plan includes the seven state mandatory elements and one optional element: land use and community design; mobility; conservation and open space; parks, recreation, and community health; safety; noise; and housing. The Housing Element is not being updated at this time. The Draft Program EIR analyzes impacts associated with the implementation of the updated General Plan.
