Document Description
The proposed project consists of a comprehensive update to the Town's General Plan and Background Report, which will serve as a long-term framework for future growth and development. The 2040 General Plan represents the community's view of its future and contains the goals and policies upon which the Town Council and Planning Commission will base their land use and resource decisions in the future. To provide a contemporary plan that will guide the community to the year 2040, the General Plan update will reflect changes in the community, new issues and opportunities as identified from community input, changes in State law such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and new trends such as autonomous vehicles and the growth of online retail shopping. As part of the alternatives process for the General Plan update, there are eight (8) Opportunity Areas targeted for change in land use type and development intensity that may result in environmental impacts.
