Document Description
The proposed project is an update to the City of Westminster's General Plan and is intended to shape development in the City and its sphere of influence (SOI) over the next 30-plus years. The General Plan Update involves reorganization of the current General Plan into the following eight elements, which include those required by state law and two additional elements: Land Use; Mobility; Parks and Recreation; Public Services, Facilities, and Natural Resources; Public Health and Safety; Housing Economic Development; and Community Design. Buildout of the General Plan Update would result in approximately 36,484 housing units, 118,463 residents, 19.2 million square feet of nonresidential building space, and 39,407 jobs in the City and its SOI.
