Document Description
The General Plan and LCP Update is a comprehensive update of the City’s 1988 General Plan and 1984 LCP. The land use classifications included in the General Plan and LCP, also known as Plan Morro Bay, define the basic categories of land use allowed in the city and are the basis for the zoning districts established in the City Municipal Code, which contain more specific regulations and standards governing development on individual properties. To maintain consistency with the General Plan and LCP Update, the project also includes a comprehensive Zoning Code Update which includes the Coastal Implementation Plan.
