The 2040 General Plan is a policy document that will guide development and conservation within the Town, including the public infrastructure and public facility improvements required to serve future development. The project site is the Planning Area for the 2040 General Plan, which contains all land within the Town’s boundaries, and the Town’s Sphere of Influence (which is co-terminus with the Town boundaries), as required by California Government Code Section 65300. The 2040 General Plan would essentially maintain the historic development pattern, with higher-intensity uses intended to be concentrated in the following areas: (1) adjacent to the Downtown Core, (2) along Taylor Road, and (3) adjacent to I-80, and development in surrounding areas progressively less intense as the distance from the Downtown Core increases. It is the Town’s intent to preserve the existing semi-rural feel and character in the fringes of the community, while also accommodating change consistent with General Plan goals. The Town’s Housing Element was updated in August 2021 and is incorporated into the proposed 2040 General Plan by reference. The Housing Element has already undergone separate environmental review as part of its adoption process (SCH No. 2000012026).
