Document Description
The proposed project (the Plan) is a three-plus-year comprehensive update to the City’s General Plan, the guiding document for the future of Palmdale over 23 years (2022-2045). The Plan focuses on enhancing community identity, building on planned infrastructure investments, improving multi-modal active transportation and connectivity, integrating health and equity, and capitalizing on the City's unique location in the region. The Plan identifies major strategies and physical improvements for the City over the next 23 years. These strategies include creating a vibrant downtown near the future multimodal transit station, establishing three health and wellness districts and two education districts, transforming Palmdale Boulevard into a mixed-use corridor, promoting a diversity of housing types in the City, forming village centers that offer a mix of residential choices and daily goods and services near existing neighborhoods, and building off existing industrial and aerospace business opportunities. These strategies will support existing and future employees, businesses, and residents by improving quality of life in Palmdale. The following actions will also be taken by the City in connection with the Plan and are also considered part of the proposed project analyzed in the EIR: Adopt and implement the General Plan Update (Palmdale 2045 Plan); Adopt and implement the Climate Action Plan; Adopt any Zoning Ordinance Amendments required to make the Zoning Ordinance consistent with the General Plan Update; Adopt the Housing Element Update; Adopt revisions to the Palmdale Transit Area Specific Plan to slightly expand its boundary.
