Multiple, update of General plan including Land use element and associated designations
The general plan update identifies and prioritizes opportunities to preserve the character of the community, conserve natural resources, and direct land use policies that enable sustainable growth in Novato. Updates to the general plan include changes to various policies directing land use amendments, addressing land use compatibility and development intensities, establishing impact thresholds for future development projects, and implementing programs focusing on the development of design guidelines and new zoning provisions. There are five focus areas that would result in land use and development intensity changes: downtown Novato, North Redwood Corridor, North-North Redwood Corridor, the Northwest Quadrant, and the Hamilton/Ignacio Industrial Parks.
