The 2040 General Plan includes updates to the goals, policies, and implementation actions in the Land Use, Circulation, Conservation, Open Space, and Health and Safety (including Noise and Air Quality) Elements and minor revisions to the general plan land use designations. The update also addresses changes in state law that have occurred in the past few years. The 2040 Land Use Diagram focuses on promoting more compact growth and creating livable places through infill and redevelopment, especially in areas supported (currently or in the future) by public transit and utilities. Many of the amendments will not change the type or density of development currently allowed under the existing General Plan. For example, the designations for parcels within developed subdivisions would change from Suburban Residential to Urban Residential to reflect the size of existing parcels in those areas; however, because these parcels are already developed, no change in allowable land uses would occur. In addition, some of the current land use designations for developed parcels would be consolidated/redefined but would not result in a change in development patterns (e.g., the City Center Commercial designation would be eliminated and would change to either Village Mixed Use or Urban Residential, depending on the existing land use).
