Pacifica General Plan Update, and New Sharp Park Specific Plan
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation

Document Description
The Pacifica General Plan is a long-term document with text and diagrams that express the goals, objectives, and policies necessary to guide the community toward achieving its vision over a 20- year period. City decision makers rely on the General Plan as the basis for making decisions on matters such as land use, transportation, open space and conservation, provision of public services, and environmental quality and safety. It is also a policy document that guides decisions related to protecting and enhancing what the community values most, such as open space, coastal resources, and protecting and enhancing the character of the community. Finally, the General Plan, together with the Local Coastal Program, serves to ensure that the statewide goals of the California Coastal Act are served.
