Document Description
The City of Salinas is preparing a comprehensive update to its existing General Plan. The update is expected to be completed in 2024 and will guide the City’s development and conservation through 2040. To guide the General Plan update, three different themes were recognized as pillars that would work together to achieve Salinas’s vision. The three pillars: Built Environment, Environmental and Sustainability, and Socioeconomic Systems. As part of the proposed Visión Salinas 2040 General Plan, the City is proposing to amend to its sphere of influence to include four Economic Opportunity Area Target Areas identified in the City’s current Economic Development Element. As part of the planning process for the proposed Visión Salinas 2040 General Plan, the City has prepared a land use map using place types intended to replace the City’s current General Plan land use map. The City of Salinas is also preparing a Climate Action Plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in ways that invest in equity while adapting to the climate change impacts already affecting us today.
