Document Description
The General Plan Update is a strategic update focused on five elements: Conservation/Open Space, Economic Development, Land Use, Noise, and Safety. The Circulation and Housing Elements were updated in 2013 and 2014 respectively; thus, no changes are proposed to those two elements. The purpose of the General Plan is to provide the City Council, Planning Commission, Staff, and the entire community with a comprehensive and internally consistent plan to guide the City's decision-making and development processes through the General Plan planning period (2040). The work program includes an update of the General Plan baseline data, goals, and policies. Based on the proposed land use designations, maximum density, and intensity permitted for each parcel, as well as the historical development patterns in the City with only a limited number of parcels being developed at the maximum density or intensity, the reasonably anticipated development potential of the proposed land use plan would increase development over existing (2016) conditions by 528 additional dwelling units and 3,085,014 additional square feet of non-residential uses.
