Document Description
The City of Sacramento (City) is updating its general plan and climate action plan to reflect current conditions, new legal requirements for general plans and climate action plans, and changes to reflect the City’s planning vision through 2040. The 2040 General Plan provides guidance to the City and the public regarding the physical form and character of Sacramento’s land use and development and the conservation of the City’s resources. The 2040 General Plan is a comprehensive update and refinement of the 2035 General Plan, which was adopted by the City on March 3, 2015, and the Climate Action & Adaptation Plan (CAAP) sets forth a community-wide strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and adaption to the effects of climate change. The CAAP was drafted in response to the state mandate that local actions be coordinated with state goals for reducing GHG emissions. The CAAP replaces the City’s prior Climate Action Plan (CAP), which was adopted March 3, 2015. The project location is the city and adjacent areas, collectively defined as the Sacramento 2040 General Plan Planning Area. The proposed 2040 General Plan is based on an updated vision statement and guiding principles that were adopted by the City Council on November 12, 2019. The vision and guiding principles for the proposed Sacramento 2040 General Plan are organized into six general categories or themes: (1) Sustainable and Responsible Growth; (2) Resiliency and Climate Action; (3) Safe, Equitable, Inclusive and Just City; (4) Regional Economic Hub; (5) Livability and Sense of Place; and (6) Interconnected, Accessible City.
